  • Is your pinball machine an antique?
    • Although pinball machines emerged in the 1930s, it’s not its age that gives it value, as much as the time and popularity of the gaming system.  To buy or sell pinball machines from the 70s, 80s and 90s have a tendency to have a higher value.  Not only for their nostalgia, but also the complexity, originality, and visual appeal that arose during this time, in the production of the pinball machines.

  • How many of the pinball machines were distributed at the time?
    • There are some pinball machines that were a good game at the time, but weren’t a big seller.  This means that a thousand or less of this game were released.  A good example of this is Cactus Canyon, from the 1990s.  Now, in 2022, this game has a higher demand than there are available out there to possibly buy.
  • What’s the condition of the game itself?
    • If you want to sell pinball machine, for the most cash possible, it is always best to present it in its best possible condition.  Although, stated above, the point is made that the demand of some pinball machines are so high, its condition is secondary.  However, that is not the case for the majority of these beloved games.  Therefore, it is always best that the pinball machine is at bare minimum in fare working condition.  But, the better the condition, the more cash in your hand you will walk away with.
