CENTRAL PARK Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverAverage cabinet, repo backglass, playfield touched up and clearcoated. All new metal trim. Zero Timed, Nick Raschilla restoration. This is the third game I purchased back in July 1999 from Vic Camp. I was looking for a game with animation in the backglaass and answered an ad on Mr. Pinball by Vic Camp. I didn't know Vic at this time and didn't know too much about Pinball Machines. So I contacted Vic and decided to take a day trip with my wife the three daughters. As to not make it too obvious that I wanted to start building a collection, I got everyone on board that the kids wanted another game. So, we loaded the kids into the van and headed to North Jersey to meet Vic at Classic Pinball to see the game. I played the game while the kids ran wild in Kevins store with all the games. After speaking with Vic and Kevin I decided to purchase it. After loading the game into the van, Vic kindly invited us back to his house to see his collection. When we walked into his gameroom, I especially was blown away! Vic rolled out the red carpet for us and the rest is history. The first two games I purchased were really for the kids, but this machine and adventure was truly a turning point for me in the hobby. Vic really got me started on building a gameroom and also the start of a great friendship. Thanks Vic!!

What should i say.....just stunning!
They look like NIB.
It's a mystery to my how it is possible to bring games with 10.000 of games into such a condition.
Joker Poker is one of my all-time-favourite game!
You have a lot of games i never heard of or even saw them here in germany. Think they never ever crossed the ocean in this years they were on location. Very interesting to watch your collection. If i am ever near-by, i'll come aroung.
With regards from germany:Gorgar

I have had the distinct pleasure of not only playing Nick Raschilla's collection,( the 8th Wonder of the World , by the way) but also owning two of his full blown, complete / New in the box / zero timed restorations....Sing Along and King of Diamonds. If you are a serious collector and /or lover of EM's, you should own at least one of his. But beware.... they are like Lays potato chips! I sold my previous two EM pins because the difference in appearance and gameplay didn't compare. Go to my page and see what I mean!
