Item description

The shadow pinball in perfect condition. No sanctum wear, and very low plays. Amazing shape, purchased from original owner, that never used it. It's reading 143 plays, and I honestly believe that is the original play count based on how clean the game is. The original owner was an 80+ year old man, and it sat in his basement in SF forever. It had a layer of dust on it, but not a single scratch.

I upgraded this with a full LED upgrade kit from

Only issue is top playfield motor needs to be installed. I purchased it, along with a new upgraded metal gear, but haven't installed them yet.

I bought this game a few months ago, (about six or so) for $3300. After that I put another $500 into an LED kit and a new upper motor, etc.

At $3800 I break even (minus my labor) so I've already lost money, but had fun in the process. See pinside value, and I've never seen an almost 25 year old game with only 150 plays and zero sanctum wear.

Price is now firm at $3700. If I know you, i.e. you are in BAPA, or otherwise know people I know... then I will take an additional $50 off :)

I can take additional photos on request, and also a video if requested. I did put a small piece of Mylar over the sanctum, so this game will always stay mint in it's most susceptible area for play field wear.

Willing to entertain local trades as well as + cash on my side. I am looking for a Star Trek Premium, among a few others.

Comes with original manual, and a few other extras including a replica Phurba ($100) :)

Here are the motor replacement parts I bought:

also this: (the metal gear upgrade)

Looks like I also have brand new Stern glass on there from Aerosmith when I upgraded that game to invisiglass. (The made in USA sticker top left is a Stern thing)

Update: Pictures I took today are revealing two flaws, one on the right side back box, and a second blemish on the left side near the upper play field. Both are minor cosmetic issues, but shown for full disclosure.

Priority for local pickup, and first come first served.
