ATLANTIS Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!Neverser# 07245. Rebuild started 04/05/2014. Rebuild completed 5/18/2014. This one is the keeper.
BUCCANEER Gottlieb (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverSer# 07300. 39K plays, local find.
BUCKAROO Gottlieb (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverser# 04806 (just five away from my other I one had). Needs a new backglass and is going to take a lot of resto work, but it has good potential.
CENTIGRADE 37 Gottlieb (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverser# 04958. The sixth example of this title to enter into the collection. This one has very vibrant original colors, is low play, and may displace the previous keeper. Will have to carefully compare them. The local distributor/ops must have done well with this title, as they sure have made frequent appearances around here.
EIGHT BALL DELUXE LIMITED EDITION Bally (USA)Set up, plays!Neverser# 2196. My friend Brian gave this to me in August 2014. Finally had the electronics repaired and got it back up and running again in June 2015 (thanks to Tim at Nabours Novelty - excellent service). What a fun game!
EL DORADO Gottlieb (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverser# 06341. Very nice playfield.
EYE OF THE TIGER Gottlieb (USA)In storage, workingNeverser# 03326. Finally found an upgrade and keeper example. So will have another one for sale eventually. Both of the ones I have came from the St. Louis area, and are only four serial numbers apart.

PIN-UP Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!Neverser# 06587. Local estate sale find. Nice original shape, rebuilt nicely.
PYRAMID Gottlieb (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverser# 05083 M. Needs some work, but seems to be a hard to find title for some reason. I have a decent extra backglass to use in it (maybe NOS). Found a NOS Cleopatra/Pyramid playfield to swap in. This will turn out to be a very nice example.
ROCK STAR Gottlieb (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverser# 04460 (cab); 1009 S (playfield) This example was combined from two different games; the other combo went to another collector. Very happy to add one to the collection and look forward to restoring it.

SKILL ROLL  Bally (USA)Sold ser# BA1772. Unrestored, working, pretty decent candidate to restore, and I don't need two of them. :) Sold 5/27/14.
SKILL ROLL  Bally (USA)Sold ser# BA1292. Skill Roll #6 has arrived and awaits restoration. This one will be for sale when completed. New repro backglass arrived.

SKILL ROLL  Bally (USA)Sold ser# BA1929. Just a bit too far gone to restore (bummer), but has several great parts to use restoring the other ones (hurray). It would be restorable if it had the handles, but those are so hard to find. Sold 8/2015.

SKILL-POOL Gottlieb (USA)Sold ser# 079486 SP. Have repro plastics on hand. Still has the shipping block with the game, and looks to be a gem under all the dust. One interesting thing about this game is the cooling fan mounted under the playfield, underneath the light up pool balls. There are several air vent holes in the playfield within the pool ball 'rack', and the cooling fan will blow air up into there. Rebuilt 2/2018, sold 3/2018.

SNOW DERBY Gottlieb (USA)Sold ser# 06311
SOCCER Gottlieb (USA)Sold ser# 06730. Missing backglass and playfield poor, but lots of great parts to let other games live on. Havenít really sold this but itís a parts bucket now.  
SPACE SHIP Williams (USA)Sold ser# 57804. This is the game pictured on IPDB in the sample cabinet. Note that the cabinet design matches that of a few other games made ahead of it in 1961, with only the yellow color differing (e.g., same design as shown on the flyer for Ten Spot and others). The serial number does not fall within the 'production' range for Space Ship either, but it does seem to be close to Ten Spot. My guess is that Williams had a batch of these cabinets in different colors and with the lower serial numbers and used them for early production examples of a few titles. These are the styles shown on the flyers and promo photos, whereas the production models had different cabinet artwork. I did set the game up and get it working, and replaced the broken rollover button. It could use a good shopping/rebuild though. I'd sell as-is for $1500.

THE 4 HORSEMEN Gottlieb (USA)Sold ser#040273. This one came out of long-time family collection. It's rough, but should come out OK. Had an opportunity to pass the game along for a fair price, so opted to let it go rather than it sit in the project queue.

A wonderful collection held by an individual who has positively contributed to the understanding of EM pinball machines and the positive development of those who also wish to contribute.

Great collection of Gottlieb EM's, both past and present!
 From znet on 10-22-2015 04:50:
I'm glad to see that another Strange World (and a sample at that) made its way into your fine collection. Congratulations. I can now discard the "reserved for Dirtflipper" note inside my SW.
 From znet on 10-04-2014 17:21:
So many great titles, all in first-class condition, in a single collection. . .uncanny. Dirtflipper is a sleuth for locating the top games and for making them gems. I enjoy watching your games elevate from the restoration category to the keeper column.
