Price check on these 2 machines
« on: June 11, 2019, 08:02:22 PM »
 I am currently thinking about selling my Williams Jokerz pinball(90% LED) w/ LED score displays and rotten dog MPU.
 Also my San Francisco Rush 2049 (LCD VGA computer monitor retro fit)
Anyone interested?

I think the Rush's go $300-$500 depending on condition usually.

Cool games but i think the size puts some people off.

Wow, that isn't much at all.. I paid around $1500 for Rush 2 years ago from a dealer (stupid me) and the Jokerz I got at a low price but it had a acid eaten mpu that I had to replace along with a new LED display so I have over 600-700 dollars invested plus the initial cost.. I'd have to get around $1100 to break even.. Well thanks for the insight..    8)

Ouch!

Unfortunately the word "dealer" in the explains everything. Retail is often as much as 2x-5x the going "collector" rate.

You'll probably have no problem selling it for around $500-$600 if its in really good shape. I just checked back and that's what the last 2 went for in the passed 6 months or so.

Normally I'd say give Craigslist a try to boost the price a bit but the home buys are usually afraid of the large format games but you never know!

Anyway good luck.

Thats a great idea.. Thanks....
I still haven't decided if I want to part with it since its so hard to find a decent pinball from the 80s and 90s under 2k anymore..
