I'm thinking of a new pin (even though house isn't finished I've managed to make a space 😂)

Could I have rough prices for players condition of the following?

FT
Hs2
BSD
RFM
CFTBL
AFM
MM
MB
TOM


I know the later ones are going to be a jump in price and hard to find.

Mate, they will be very different answers to what you'd have got 6 months ago.

Yeah, I'm aware, i remember FT being a 2.5k ish game, I'm sure it's jumped up😔
I'm asking because I might get a shock when I post a wanted thread 😂

Agree with @Moonraker but think that's top end for HS2 and RFM. TOM is a tricky one, maybe more like 4.5 - 5k but demand is high and they don't come up so often, so this is one of those "who knows" chaser pins.

I think generally speaking your 'C' titles are now bordering 2k, 'B' titles 2500, 'A' titles vary widely.

Example... that No Fear on ebay is 2k all day long. It's a C, and always has been. The chap won't take less than 3k (i asked), so he's just fishing for a sucker. Fair enough, im sure it will sell, but newbies just be careful what you spend as you can easily be 500-1000 out of pocket on resell.

The only way to protect yourself from paying to much for a game is to have experience playing the game you buy, I have played some top titles and decided they are just not as much fun as i though they would be and i have played some very average rated games and loved them so much I've bought them. its well spent money if its a well loved - by the buyer

Rough prices listed above.
Thanks Peter, a lot are lower than I thought considering the covid times price hikes!

The BSD that is for sale on here is currently bidding at £3,350 on ebay, it's a really nice almost mint example but I don't care for perfect cabs so I'd be paying 1k or more for something I'm not too bothered by... Although I suppose it'll sell well when if I moved it on 🤔

BSD for me is absolutely top drawer. I think it's surged ahead in popularity even before covid.

That price im not suprised about, nor would i think you've overpayed if you won.

It's a slow burn. You'll have 100 games then the game of your life and you'll be stood there thinking "wtf just happened" followed by "i need more!!" but you'll need to play another 100 before it happens again. So good.

Btw, the covid bubble was driven by bored buyers overpaying. Keep cool people. It's a phase and was fuelled by backseat commentary, let's not be silly about it! Pinball is to be enjoyed and if it becomes a super elite hobby that'll be a real shame.

Let me say this.... i remember chasing a BOP ten years ago thinking to myself "if I don't buy this now, I'll NEVER get the chance to own one". I've learnt that's bolloćks. There's always the title you want eventully cropping up at a price you'll be comfortable with, just be sensible and don't fuel the frenzy.

Keep flippin!

Those are player condition rough and ready prices. Many machines can and potentially will sell for more. If you don't rush for the first one you see then they can be found. Better still save up and get a new AIQ or JP2..! :thumbs:

This was my other plan,
My pinball pot is saved independently from my house renovation savings, I shouldn't really get a new pin till the actual pinball room exists which could be as long as a year away at the rate I'm going 🙄 but have about 5k in the pin fund currently. The real plan is to keep building it then get a new pin when the room is done but I was feeling impulsive and wanted something new to cheer me up 😂

Really want a flowy game in my collection hence the fan layout ones I listed and yeah I could sell one of my four to make room but I don't feel able to let any go yet🙄

I definitely have a new found appreciation for Sterns since Neil's event but £££!

Too many options!

I think that the prices said above are more the end of rough players condition, that may still require work to get working 💯- with new parts like flipper rebuilds, LED conversions, don’t think you would get a Color DMD in them for that price either..
