I don’t think that’s accurate. I think it was up for less than that. Maybe chris b can shed some light. I maybe wrong.

I have an average conditiona Banzai Run which I would value around £1800-£2k.
I sold a very nice banzai run earlier in the year I didn’t know what it was worth so listed it at £3000 Ono I got various offers mainly around £2500 with the odd silly group member low ball offer
it sold with in 2 hours for £2600

Why the hell do these people include the 'Make an offer' option, when they're not willing to actually accept any offers? I've had this before, it's extremely annoying.
Ebay has been switching offers on automatically on my listings, even when you revise the listing and switch them off again, a week later and they are back on :mad:

I mean its nice, but....................5k, and not gonna increase in value as such, someone who really wants that particular model would be frightened to play it if they bought it at that price.
I would have said maybe half the asking price to a person who is seeking that particular machine.

He refers to Giacomo Malvermi in his ad and his restored EM games sell for even more. Look up pinballcreative.
Next time I play I’ll refer to Steve Bowden, he plays much better than I do. Will that make a diddly squats worth of difference to what I’m doing? :p

This guy, who is asking 5 grand for a Gottlieb EM, says "The restoration cost alone has exceeded £2000, so no silly offers of time-wasters please"

I know it costs a ton of money to restore games but at 5k, and claiming it to be the best, well, you are open to feedback;)

The cabinet has been heavily webbed. That game should have had a splatter finish. That may be me being picky but if you pay 5k, you would expect it to have the correct finish.
