BLACK JACK Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverVery rare EM version of Black Jack. Only 120 were produced in the EM version. Mine is one of the very first early # machines. This is a true rare find locally. Machine playes great and works 100%. I am looking for a flyer for this machine. I'm not even sure if one was ever produced for the EM version. Email me if you know or have one for sale.
BOW AND ARROW Bally (USA)Set up, needs some workNeverThis one is the solid state version. Needs board work but really great condition.

NIP-IT Bally (USA)Set up, plays!MaybeNice machine. I think it may very well be one of the first produced with the original plastic gator head instead of the wire bar that grabs the ball at the top right. I have pieces of the plastic gator that I found in the bottom of the cabinet.

Yeah! This is what i like. This is what true pinball maniacs really need! This is a collection full of great classics from the golden years of pinball. "Bow and Arrow" in Solid State?! Unbelieveable!
