4 SQUARE Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!MaybeYou donít see many of this title with a great backglass
ABRA CA DABRA Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverI had to work some "Magic" to acquire this beautiful all original Abra Ca Dabra. Thanks to a friend I was able to upgrade my first Abra and make a fantastic machine. Sharp edges and paint on the cabinet and just a beautiful backglass. Great gameplay and my favorite machine
ATLANTIS Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverI go back and forth between Abra Ca Dabra and Atlantis as my favorite machine. A top 3 wedgehead by far and one of the most challenging! This one is my keeper.
BANK-A-BALL Gottlieb (USA)Set up, needs some workMaybe  
BIG BRAVE Gottlieb (USA)In storage, workingYes!

BIG BRAVE Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverBeautiful original condition machine
BIG HIT Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverSold my first Big Hit because I was getting this insane condition machine. This one is never leaving.
BLUE NOTE Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!Never
BUCCANEER Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverOutstanding original condition machine with 35, 673 plays on the meter. Buccaneer wasn't one of the top machines on my wish list, but when there's one in this condition I couldn't pass it up. Surprisingly it's a decent player. I would put it in the category of "I'll play one more game" because it looks too easy to not be able to complete the sequence and rack up specials. A very satisfying shot is backhanding the 11 special lane from the right flipper or the 10 special lane from the left!
BUCKAROO Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverHad 3 Buckaroo machines over the years. This one is my keeper. Outstanding original condition
CENTIGRADE 37 Gottlieb (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationMaybe
CENTIGRADE 37 Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!Never
CENTRAL PARK Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverThe Double Targets Special on this Central Park and the All Rollovers Special on North Star are the 2 hardest Specials in my opinion.
EL DORADO Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!MaybeJune 6 2018. Just finished the playfield swap....WOW!
EL DORADO Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!Never  
FAST DRAW Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverWow what a machine!
FIRE QUEEN Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverAn absolutely stunning machine. Playfield is beautiful with no kickout hole wear. Solid cabinet artwork. NOS backglass installed. One of my favorite playing and looking machines. Love the rule set, the art package, and playability of this underrated 2-player.
FUN LAND Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!Yes!

Perfect original backglass. Mechanically restored late April 2018. Wow love those spinners! They make such a different sound than other Gottlieb spinners I've heard. Fun Land was another machine that wasn't high up on my list of games to track down. Now after playing a number of games on it and chasing the Special, I have come to really appreciate its play. Great sound on this machine from the spinners to the 500 point bell. Another great addition to the lineup and not seen in many other collections.
GOLDEN ARROW Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!Never  
HIGH HAND Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverFinally added an absolute beautiful all original condition High Hand back to the collection! After selling the first High Hand it was immediately missed. It took 15+ years of searching to find another to replace it. The backglass is almost perfect and only has a couple tape marks. Playfield has no kickout wear. Cabinet artwork is solid and great chrome. Love the sound of the bonus collection and the extreme difficulty of the center cup shot from the flippers. This High Hand was something I thought could only be dreamed of. The reds in the backglass some how have been miraculously spared. Iíll be keeping and enjoying this one for a very long time!
HIT THE DECK Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverAquired this [Funeral] Home Use Only machine from a fellow New Jersey collector. It "killed" him to let it go, but he knew it was going to a good home. I won't be getting rid of this machine anytime soon and will try and "take it to the grave." This Hit the Deck is super clean inside and out! It never had a coin mech or play-meter installed! My favorite shot is a quick backhand flip from the right flipper to the bottom kickout hole. It's a popular machine due to the low production number and outstanding art package, but the gameplay is very underrated in my opinion.
ICE REVUE Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverRare sample machine. Can't be many out there, let alone in this condition. #01006 S
JACK IN THE BOX Gottlieb (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationMaybe  
JACKS OPEN Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverBeautiful original condition Jacks Open. Low plays with the meter reading 27, 373. One of my favorite drop target machines!
JUMPING JACK Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!Never
KING KOOL Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!Never
KING OF DIAMONDS Gottlieb (USA)In storage, workingMaybe
KING PIN Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverGreat original backglass, playfield, and cabinet. Itís an extremely challenging drop target machine. I enjoy the moving target for special and love the bowling theme and simple playfield layout.
KINGS & QUEENS Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!Never  
NORTH STAR Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverJust about perfect original backglass! Playfield has minimal wear and has all original lane guides and bumper caps. Original cabinet art with natural scratches. Waited a while for the right keeper North Star and this is it.
PAUL BUNYAN Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverWow the backglass on this is beyond mint! Been trying to track this game down for some time. Harder than it looks to get A, B, and C out IN ORDER. Great and challenging 2-player.
PRETTY BABY Williams (USA)In storage, workingNever
SCUBA Gottlieb (USA)In storage, workingNever
SING ALONG Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverThe third Sing Along thatís been in the collection over the years and itís definitely the last one. Tremendous original condition machine!  
SKY JUMP Gottlieb (USA)In storage, workingNeverPicked up this immaculate all original "project" Sky Jump (April 2017). Restoration finished May 2017*. Almost no wear on the playfield and the chrome shined up to an insane level. Backglass is a 9+ original. Got real lucky with this great drop target wedgehead. Love the scoring on this machine and the moving special. A very underrated game and glad that I have one for the collection.
SNOW DERBY Gottlieb (USA)In storage, workingNeverFinally found this machine!Öand with a just about mint backglass!
SPIN OUT Gottlieb (USA)In storage, workingNeverBeautiful all round machine with original backglass, playfield and cabinet. Absolutely no kickout hole wear. Roto-target spins fast! Plays similar to Buckaroo but different in its own way. Very happy with finding this one and not seen in many collections. This was the last machine needed to complete the 1975 wedgehead set (*only reply games) for my collection. Abra Ca Dabra, Atlantis, El Dorado, and now Spin Out!
SPOT-A-CARD Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverThis Spot-A-Card was restored by Mark Niemkiewicz. It is equipped with a NOS playfield and plays flawlessly! This is one of those machines that stops you in your tracks to just take a moment and admire. I had the opportunity to buy this machine years ago, but passed. At the time there were specific wedgeheads I was looking to acquire and a woodrail didn't fit in my collection. Well, that was the dumbest decision that I would soon regret. It took a lot to track this machine down. It mades its rounds to some big collectors after Mark. From MN - HI - JF - MC - FW - and now at it's final stop in my collection. It will be enjoyed and taken care of for many, many years to come! I'm honored to have this beautiful machine in my collection! Done right by truly one of the best in this wonderful hobby.
STRANGE WORLD Gottlieb (USA)In storage, workingNeverAwesome all original condition. Perfect NOS backglass, no fading in the purples or pinks of the cabinet, but some slight yellowing of the white, Playfield is very nice with no kick-out hole wear. Just need to add the correct pop bumper bodies. This machine keeps me coming back for one more game and you need to get out the sets of 1's, 2's, 3's or 4's to light them for 5, 000 to have any chance at a high score. I'm very happy with this machine and it took me a long time to find one. It will be here for a very long time.
TKO Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!Never
TOP CARD Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!Never  
VOLLEY Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!Never
WILD LIFE Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverThis machine was from the Hershey Hotel in Hershey PA

SPOT-A-CARD Gottlieb (USA)Sold When it comes to woodrails this is quite the machine. It will make you look silly most of the time and keep you coming back for more. The Special looks so easy to hit and just taunts you the entire game, as it sits right smack dab in the middle of the playfield. Beautiful Original playfield with no wear at the kickout holes, no flipper drag, and minimal ball track wear. Only selling because I was able to track down a specific Spot-A-Card that I had been looking for

TARGET ALPHA Gottlieb (USA)Sold   
TARGET POOL Gottlieb (USA)Sold Such an underrated game. Love the 300 point bell and just A classic sounding wedgehead.
TARGET POOL Gottlieb (USA)Sold 
TROPIC ISLE Gottlieb (USA)Sold One of the hardest games to beat. Getting A, B, C, and D during one game, to score 200 points, is hard enough, let alone on one ball. In order to get specials lit on 4th ball or earlier you have to have the plunge down and get lucky with a flip though one of the roll unders and up the center 3 lane. Sides and middle are a drain monster on this game. Fun, but challenging game. Absolutely love the artwork and colors of this machine!
VOLLEY Gottlieb (USA)Sold Such an underrated game! Not many players like the tennis artwork. Great original backglass. Acquired this beautiful machine from an excellent collector
