Super Auction Prices Pinball Expo 2008

On Friday night I made a quick mention of some of the final prices at the Pinball Expo 2008 Super Auction. I finalized the photos with prices and have them loaded up in a gallery. Don’t be too surprised when you don’t see very many classic games though. 😉

Makin’ a killing at Super Auctions

Games were going for way below value. My guess would be the circumstances had something to do with that. The economy is bad, there was a limited audience at the Pinball Expo and those were pinball guys. But even the pinball guys didn’t bid up the pins that were there either.

A few highlights in my opinion;

  • Nice looking Road Blasters – $40
  • After Burner – $50
  • Marvel Super Heroes Street Fighter – $75

I know Troy Smith (MtZRcade on the Klov forums) picked up a ton of games, as if he needed more (Probably a good chunk of the 70 mentioned below). Currently he quoted himself as having somewhere in the neighborhood of 500+ games in a warehouse! Keeps the business going I guess.

But for me, I have over 500 games right now. And there are members on here that can verify that I have that much. Hell, i bought over 70 games alone this week.

Pinball auction prices

hello, Do you know where I can find an arcade auction in or near Ohio? I am looking for a Donkey Kong and Mrs Pacman. Any idea what they bring now days?

Thanks

Responded via email. Those are fairly easy games to come by when you are talking about collecting. But I would certainly hit up VAPS for collectors with large collections in your area, or even to see if anyone is selling those specific games.

Hi: I’m in Chicago and trying to locate Troy Smith, MtzRcade. If you have contact info for Troy, could you email that info to me privately? Thanks Paul W
