21 Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverI had one of these before, sold it and missed it. So when a buddy put this one up for sale I had to grab it. Pretty snappy for an old game.
4 BAGGER DELUXE Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverMy buddy in Ca bought this, shopped it and said I could have it if I wanted to ship. So that's what I did. My 3rd example of this title. This one's not leaving. Thanks buddy!
FRONTIERSMAN Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverGreat game. This thing has staying power. Had it for a few years now and still a blast to play.
HI-DEAL Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverThis one played fine when I got it home but finally got around to giving it a proper going over. Don't know what it is about this one. The art is quirky, geometry is a little weird but I simply love it. It's a keeper.
NIGHT RIDER Bally (USA)Set up, plays!MaybeExcellent backglass. Pretty nice playfield and cab. New legs.
PLEASURE ISLE Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverFinally got this one cleaned up and playing good. Very fun game with a lot of neat features.
SET SHOT BASKETBALL  other (see notes)Set up, plays!NeverI know this isn't a pinball but has been a staple in my collection for quite a few years. Always gets some attention when people visit. My wife took a shine to the aesthetic of some of my games. So this one just got called up to the living room.
SHOOTING GALLERY  Midway (USA)Set up, plays!NeverHad this game for many years. Spent a couple years at a friends place. Always a hit with guests and the kids/grandkids.
SING ALONG Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverAlways thought this looked like a charming game. Could use a little sprucing up but already plays pretty decent. Sample game I think?
SKEE ALLEY  United (USA)Set up, plays!Never1950 Skee Alley. Sort of a mix between a shuffle alley and a skee ball. I believe this was the first model with a few variations after.
SKEE BALL  other (see notes)Set up, needs some workNever1937 Wurlitzer Skee Ball. My wife had the crazy idea to bring the gameroom vibe upstairs. So we set it up in our living room. Ugh this thing weighs a ton, my back is killing me.
SKILL ROLL Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverLongest game in my collection. It's spent time in 4 different rooms in my house, and even had a year long stay at a friend's place in California.

pinball nameDBmanufactureris it for sale?notespictures
21 Williams (USA)Sold Neat game, very challenging. Nice overall, could use a better back glass.
4 BAGGER DELUXE Williams (USA)Sold Very nice machine, original cabinet paint in great shape, reproduction backglass. My second example of this model. A lot of fun. Going to a friend in Ca.
BABY LELAND  Stoner (USA)Sold Small counter game. Made by Stoner Mfg. distributed by Chicago Coin.
BASKETBALL CHAMP Chicago Coin (USA)Sold 
BIG DADDY Williams (USA)Sold Game plays but needs some fine tuning. A couple feature lights don't work and one flipper switch needs to be replaced (switch included). Cab has unfortunately been painted over but you can see the outline of the original underneath. Playfield is pretty nice. Glass is decent with a few spots of missing paint.
BIG INNING Williams (USA)Sold Nice backglass and playfield. Cabinet has some lifting paint. Was working when put away may need some minor adjustments. I hope to pull it out soon and get some pics.  
BIG STRIKE Williams (USA)Sold Plays good. Overall fair condition. Backglass has some paint loss but presents well. It has not been sealed or touched up. Cabinet is fair. It came to me covered in glued on burlap with a red repaint underneath. After many hours of scraping with a razor I revealed a not perfect but presentable original paint job underneath. Playfield is fair with some wood graining. Playfield cleaned and touched up. Has new pop bumper bodies, rubber rings, ball, new flipper coils and hold coil. $550
BIG TOP  Chicago Coin (USA)Sold 1973 Chicago Coin Big Top standup twin rifle game. Pretty nice shape cosmetically but un-shopped. Complete, even has original 8 track player and literature envelope with set-up instructions, manual and schematic.
BONUS BASEBALL United (USA)Sold Just picked up this cool P&B. Hoping I have patience and ability to get it going. Upon first inspection it looks to have it's fair share of hacks, spliced wires etc.
BOW AND ARROW Bally (USA)Sold Plays great, fast and fun. Cleaned up to be a nice game.
BOWLETTE Gottlieb (USA)Sold Neat little shuffle bowler. Guy that sold it to me bought it in 1972. Cabinet is really nice. Has the little original puck (thank goodness). Has a new Shay back glass.
CHALLENGER Bally (USA)Sold 1959 Bally Challenger 14 foot ball bowler.
COW POKE Gottlieb (USA)Sold Gone but not forgotten.
DAFFIE Williams (USA)Sold AAB zipper flipper game. Decent condition overall. Missing back door.
DANCING DOLLS Gottlieb (USA)Sold This one came to me missing the legs and in desperate need of a backglass. She's got legs! And now a pretty nice used backglass. I'm making slow progress bringing this one back. I still need one of the green vacuum formed playfield plastics. Update: Game get's a little better everyday. It is now playing but need to do some fine tuning.
DANCING DOLLS Gottlieb (USA)Sold Just picked up this very nice Dancing Dolls from a buddy. Repro backglass, new plastics, new legs, plays great. My first impression I didn't think much of this game. After discovering the nuances it's pretty darn fun. Frustratingly so as it's pretty brutal. I played it a ton yesterday and have yet to pop a replay on score. Keeps me trying though.
DANCING LADY Gottlieb (USA)Sold Tuned up and playing pretty good. Surprisingly fun as a stand alone game and even better as a multi-player. This game has a lot of neat features. Love those jeweled posts and charming animation. The weakest part of this game is the playfield. I cleaned it up and looks ok for what it is but would consider an upgrade. Any leads are appreciated.
DROP-A-CARD Gottlieb (USA)Sold 
DUCK PIN BOWLER  United (USA)Sold 1956 United Duck Pin Ball Bowler. Neat and seemingly rare game. Uses 4" balls. Pretty nice cosmetically and not much to it mechanically (compared to a typical ball bowler). Shouldn't take much to get it going. I started shopping this out. Went through back box and mech panel. Still need to go through the pin deck (motor is free) and lane switches (noticed one broken wire form). Sourced hard to find replacement pins and ball rail brackets. Has 2 original balls. Because this is a 11' long and does not break down into sections I realized I won't be able to get it into my basement without removing a wall. Sold pending pickup. Sniff. Going to miss this one.
FIREPOWER Williams (USA)Sold 
FLIP FLOP Bally (USA)Sold My second example of this quirky cool Bally game. This one is another project that needs a little love but has potential. Upon first inspection the glass looks perfect. These Bally glasses seemed to hold up nicely. Decent cabinet. Playfield has some paint loss near the inserts.
FLIP FLOP Bally (USA)Sold I have owned very few Ballys over the years. This is a neat game. Plays completely different than anything I'm used to. Very fast for an Em. The friend I got this from wanted it back so I made a trade toward Space Mission.
FLIPPER COWBOY Gottlieb (USA)Sold 
FULL HOUSE Williams (USA)Sold 
GLOBE TROTTER Gottlieb (USA)Sold Challenging old wood rail with nice art. Multiple strategies to win. Take the old 4 prop plane to Tehran for special!
GOLDEN ARROW Gottlieb (USA)Sold Just brought this one home. May be going to a friend.
GRAND PRIX Williams (USA)Sold A little rough around the edges but should clean up to be a decent player. The only game I remember putting time on as a kid. My dad had one in his motorcycle dealership.
GRAND PRIX Williams (USA)Sold This machine is a mechanically complete game assembled from the lesser of two Grand Prixs. Poor back glass, flaking play field, a couple broken plastics and broken coin-door hinge. Will part out or sell as a project. $225
HEARTS AND SPADES Gottlieb (USA)Sold $475
HI-DIVER Gottlieb (USA)Sold Just picked up this nice Hi-Diver from a buddy. Needs a little freshening up on the steppers but plays and is pretty fun.
HOT LINE Williams (USA)Sold Very fun game. Players condition.
HOT LINE Williams (USA)Sold I just got my old Hot Line back. A little better than before. It now has a better backglass and much nicer coin door. The playfield is still pretty weak but it's such a fun player I don't mind.
JIG SAW Williams (USA)Sold Neat game I just got from a buddy in partial trade for my Shooting Gallery. I hated to lose the Shooting Gallery but this eases the sting a bit. Perfect back glass. Charming light animation. I like it!
JIG SAW Williams (USA)Sold Will need plastics and playfield has typical wear for this title. Glass is useable. Cabinet is surprisingly nice. I have removed all the playfield parts and cleaned since pic shown. It will need a couple inserts re-glued, touch-ups and seal. I was going to refinish the wood trim etc. Complete except for backbox bell. Has rubber ring set and new levelers. $250.
JUNGLE Williams (USA)Sold Great backglass animation. As much fun to look at as it is to play. Has beautiful brand new Shay silkscreened backglass.
KICKOFF Williams (USA)Sold Nice AAB game with backglass animation. Longtime favorite. I have had a couple examples of this one. I put this up for sale a couple times. My wife said "what you love that game." She's right so I chickened out and pulled the ad. Ha. Maybe down the road it can go, maybe not.
KICKOFF Williams (USA)Sold Very nice export back glass, decent play field, cabinet has some paint loss. Very well implemented AAB.
LITTLE CHIEF Williams (USA)Sold Belgium export game that must have never left. Pretty nice game. Does seem like there is much going on at first but this game grows on you. Fast and fun. 50hz score motor. Runs fast but I like it. Has Franc inserts with one coin mech. Might trade for a 60s single player?
LITTLE PRO  Southland (USA)Sold Clean low play example. Has paperwork, home made back panel.
LUCKY ACE Williams (USA)Sold Kind of a departure from my typical game. Nice cabinet, decent playfield and marginal backglass. Fun game!
LUCKY ACE Williams (USA)Sold Still in the line-up currently but is going to a local guy.
LUCKY STRIKE Williams (USA)Sold A bit rough overall. Missing lockdown bar, legs and back panel. Backglass fair, plyafield should clean up, has a some kick out wear. Could clean up to be a decent player.
MAJORETTES Gottlieb (USA)Sold One of those uncommon games that is fairly rare, attractive and fun. It kind of caught me by surprise at what a great player it is. I never get bored with. With that said I could use a freed up slot and for the right offer I would consider letting it go. Nice playfield with a couple touch-ups, marginal backglass and poorly repainted cabinet but at least done in the proper design. Recently got a correct set of legs for it.
NEPTUNE Gottlieb (USA)Sold Wasn't really looking for another game but hard to pass up something lesser seen like this.
OH BOY Williams (USA)Sold Missing back glass and back panel. Playfield looks like it might clean up ok, cabinet solid with flaky original paint. A little rough but looks like it could be brought back to life. Was stored with no playfield glass and topside parts rusted. Surprisingly the inside looks pretty good. Tough call on wether it's worth sourcing what it needs to make it a presentable player. May be better served as a parts machine or base for a custom.
ONE-TWO-THREE Mills (USA)Sold Came to me missing the head and a few other things. I have started parting it out and sold a couple items. Let me know if you need anything.
PAT HAND Williams (USA)Sold 
PINCH-HITTER Williams (USA)Sold Sold.
POP-A-CARD Gottlieb (USA)Sold Fun game. Nice play field with very minor wear. Backglass has a fair amount of paint loss but not that noticeable. Has not been sealed or touched up yet. Repros are supposed to be available from Ron Webb this month. Cabinet is nice overall with some scratches. Shopped a couple months back. Could still use a few minor adjustments but is playing good. Currently has 28.5 legs on it. Could use a set of 31".
PREMIER BARREL ROLL  other (see notes)Sold 1946 Premier Barrel Roll Skee Ball machine. Needs restoration. Local pickup.
PRO BASKETBALL  Chicago Coin (USA)Sold 1961 Chicago Coin Pro Basketball. Neat game based on Chicago Coins 1947 Basketball Champ. New back glass installed, purchased a set of new balls. Very fun game. Tough one to find. Headed to a collection in Florida.
PRO POOL Gottlieb (USA)Sold I just got this from a buddy of mine. Perfect timing as I had an open spot to fill. I've put a few games on it and it's pretty fun. Have to see if I can beat my friends high score written on the side of the head. Nice game overall with a new coin door and legs. Sold pending pickup.
ROAD KINGS Williams (USA)Sold 
ROYAL GUARD Gottlieb (USA)Sold Clean and working, fair to good condition overall.
SERENADE Williams (USA)Sold Awesome Molentin artwork. More challenging than you'd expect from a 2 player wood rail. Up and running again. Score motor rebuilt and a couple issues sorted out with the help of some friends. Going to a friend. It will be missed.
SET UP Williams (USA)Sold Went to a friend that loves to work on them.
SHIP AHOY Gottlieb (USA)Sold After a lot of months of slowly working on this one it is finally done and playing good.
SHOOTING GALLERY  Midway (USA)Sold Classic and comical projectile shooting game. Always a guest favorite.  
SHUFFLE POOL  Genco (USA)Sold 1953 Genco Shuffle Pool. I'm always a sucker for these oddball EM arcade machines. It's going to need some love but looks mechanically complete. Biggest challenge will be the missing backglass and ball display glass.
SINBAD Gottlieb (USA)Sold 
SINBAD Gottlieb (USA)Sold Fair condition overall. Missing driver board.  
SKILL RACE  other (see notes)Sold Games Inc. Skill Race. Flipperless game that seems to be a Flasher meets Bingo combination. Nice Dog Race art. Missing head. For parts or restoration. $75
SKILL ROLL Bally (USA)Sold I have had this game for a long time. May be my favorite game. Deceivingly simple and extremely addicting. Going to a friend in Ca.
SKILL ROLL Bally (USA)Sold Nice example with a excellent silk screened glass.
SMARTY Williams (USA)Sold Clean and playing good. Playfield is pretty nice with some very minor woodgraining (hard to see in pics), cabinet is original paint and flaky, backglass has a fair amount of paint loss especially in the reds. New legs, levelers, ball, rubbers, pop bumper bodies etc. Has backdoor and keys, I believe I also have paperwork. Fun game.
SOCCER  Segasa (Spain)Sold Was kind of missing my old Bally World Cup Soccer and coincidentally happened upon this unusual game. Fixed some minor issues and is playing great. A family favorite.
SPACE MISSION Williams (USA)Sold Overall a very nice game. Excellent play field and new plastic set. Set to 3 ball. Not sure If I will leave it on 3 or go with 5. Fun game.
SPACE ODYSSEY Williams (USA)Sold 
SPANISH EYES Williams (USA)Sold I had one of these last year. This example is much nicer with an almost perfect backglass.
SPANISH EYES Williams (USA)Sold Game starts and plays through a game. Needs a good shop job. Has paperwork. Take it home for $325.
STAR ROCKET  Chicago Coin (USA)Sold (not a pinball) Upright arcade game where you try to line up rubber balls for points. Deal pending.
STAR SOCCER  other (see notes)Sold 1967 Crompton's Star Soccer. I had a 1970 Sega Soccer a couple years back that was essentially the same game. They are very similar with some minor cosmetic/electrical design differences. This one has Nixie tube score displays! That is a first for me.
STRAIGHT FLUSH Williams (USA)Sold This is just an orphaned head in fair shape. Backglass is poor, missing back door and I robbed it of the credit wheel. Otherwise mechanically complete. I will just save it for parts unless someone has a stray lower cabinet they need to match up.
STRIKE  Bally (USA)Sold 1957 Bally Strike Ball Bowler.
TEACHER'S PET Williams (USA)Sold I have had three of these and this one is the nicest. Great player.
TEACHER'S PET Williams (USA)Sold Decent project will need to be shopped. Has wrong legs. $350. Sold pending pickup.
TEACHER'S PET Williams (USA)Sold Great player, nice art. It just left and I already miss it.
TEAM ONE Gottlieb (USA)Sold Pretty clean sample game (01003S). Finally got a couple nagging issues sorted. Playing great.
TEXAN Gottlieb (USA)Sold Sample game. Nice playfield, decent cab, poor customized backglass. Missing legs and back panel. More pictures in the filthy stage… Discovered some differences in this model versus production. It appears they were experimenting with a double match award similar to Williams Star feature. Lighted jeweled inserts in the apron and a toggle switch inside to adjust the match award. 3 meters inside. Also looks to be a switch in the back to turn the bell off and on. Started shopping it out.
WING DING Williams (USA)Sold Can't get enough of these 60s Williams games. Players condition but has a real nice backglass.

I really like your collection. I am limited in space to about 8-10 games and hope someday to put together a collection as excellent and diverse as yours. Also enjoyed reading through the list of games you used to own - what a list of games you have owned!

Hi pincalendar, I see we share two games, Jungle and Skill Roll!
I have not yet restored my skill roll, but have a repro backglass and
am going to restore it soon, as I am very curious, everybody seems crazy
about this game :-)
Small collection but with special games... keep it that way!
