BALLS-A-POPPIN Bally (USA)Set up, plays!Yes!
contact me
Rare game from 1956 featuring 9-ball multiball. Probably first machine ever with real multiball, exactly like the DMD games of today. This one is really in outstanding condition, and now finally rejoined with her sister, Bally Circus :-) For sale now (until I sell some other game then I will probably pull it...) asking 3500
BREAKSHOT Capcom (USA)Set up, plays!Never  
CIRCUS Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverAfter years of searching for a backglass for my first Bally Circus, another exemplar of this really rare game came up for bids! She was from the David Silverman collection and the picture on the auction site was so tiny that I could barely recognize the game. But hey, it seemed to have a decent backglass, so I took the chance and put a bid on this second game. I was really happy to be the high bidder, but I was even more happy when I received the game and found out that the backglass was, indeed, very good for its age!! Bally backglasses, unlike Gottlieb's, don't hold well with the years (the backglass of my first Circus is almost completely blank!) but this one was sealed back then so it held better than the average. Still it had started to flake (yes, even if triple thick sealed) so I had to work a few hours on it with self adhesive mylar and some touch up. At the end it came out pretty good :) This second Circus had some problems however. Cabinet was partly repainted . The apron was completely rebuilt and did not look very good (I guess it suffered from water damage at some point, as the entire assembly had been rebuilt). Two plastics were home made and looked weird. The two custom deco caps were faded to blank. It had two broken flipper assembly plates. But overall it had a better plalyfield than my other game, so I used my first game as a donor machine to fix all these issues, and now this second Circus looks amazing and completely original. Yay!! 9-ball multiball from 1957. Can you believe it? Real multiball, exactly like DMD games. This game is sister to Bally's "Balls-A-Poppin'" (which I also own) and shares same playfield layout and same multiball system with her (although game rules are a bit different in this one).

Your Collection is unbelievable! Greetings from Germany: Gorgar.
Although in Germany there is and was a big market for "Flipper", many of your machines never reached the german market. Where did you get them? In Italy? I am looking Forward to Holiday this year in italy - spending two weeks in "Bibione". Visiting the lots of "Sala Giochi". Pinball is still found there. Very nice. Yeah....
