QuarterArcade.com Warehouse Buy Update – Pinball Photos

Last week Rotheblog was lucky enough to break the news about QuarterArcade.com’s Warehouse find in PA filled with 100 plus arcade games and pinball machines. Today I’ve got an update showing the inside of the warehouse with 12 photos of the pinball machines. I need some help identifying them, so please, leave a comment.

Schwenksville, PA Pinball Machines

I predicted that Anthony bought up this lot of games with the intention of fixing up and selling every last one of them, but I was wrong about the pinballs. Just like past bulk game buys, he offered up the warehouse pins first for sale to RGP and to other wholesalers to buy on location, saving a lot of space, time and probably some money. If you click on the photo below you’ll enter the photo gallery (only 6 photos). I was able to identify some of the more obvious pieces, but I need your help. Please leave a comment and help me identify all of the pinballs in the photos for the ones that I am missing or have incorrect. (Please forgive me that I don’t know my pinballs as well as I should.)

Warehouse Pinballs - Gottlieb The Spirit

As I was referencing the different machines on the Pinball Database, I realized what a diverse set of machines were in this warehouse. Some rare pinballs dating back as early as the 40’s with few photos on IPBD (Big Chief) to Gottlieb The Spirit, a high in demand machine – just over 1000 units ever made, to Dirty Harry which I believe was probably the most recent pinball of the bunch being released in 1995. So, these games have only been sitting around for 10 years. I thought in my original warehouse post that these arcade games would have been at least 15-20 years based on the limited information about the density of the classics there-in.

Some of the pinball machines did get a little wet, but the frequency was low so let’s hope that the arcades that got wet are also few and far between. These photos show a sneak peak of some of those 65+ arcade games. Here are the ones I spotted, did I miss any?

  • Atari Asteroids
  • Star Trek Cockpit
  • Ms. Pac-man Cabaret
  • Cocktail – Unknown, please help me identify

The list of pinballs for sale

Not to repeat too much information, here is the list of nearly 40 pinball machines from the warehouse in Schwenksville, PA.

Update: Most of these pinballs are now sold whether they are marked as such below or not. If you are interested in a particular machine, leave a comment here instead of emailing Anthony and overloading him with requests. He can check your comments and get in touch with you if the machine is still for sale.

In listed prices, this is over $21,000 in pinball game sales. That’s if Anthony got list price, and that isn’t including the games without a price including the Gottlieb Spirit which could have gone for as much as $5,000. I would guess that revenue could have covered the total cost of the buy with the pinball machines alone, let alone the arcade games still left to sell!

@Ken Jackson:

I don’t know what ‘pars’ means, and I don’t know if the two Star Trek games from the QuarterArcade.com warehouse raid are still up for sale or not. You will need to contact Anthony through his website to ask him about that.
