  • [Price Check] - Bally EBD 1st edition

    Bally Eight Ball Deluxe 1st edition (I think). Headbox and cab numbers don' t match - not unusual for this period.

    Playfield is average with touchups. To do this game justice it does need another PF.

    Cab is solid with touchups.

    Backglass is great with a few extremely small ouch ups on the back but not visible when playing.

    Board wise it's running Altek pretty well everything except the solenoid board. I can clarify that later.

    It plays well, needs a better coin door (maybe?)

    Just asking a ball park $ please.

        Going off the description and being I see this as a $6-8K machine in very nice condition....for me, it sounds more like a $4K machine with all the work needed.

          Sold for 6K to KJS......

          Hmmm, doesn't sound like a realistic price now does it?.

          If a 1981 Bally SS players quality is worth 6K, all be it one of the highest earners of that era, what is say a Pinbot players quality worth, 7K?. That would then have say an Earth Shaker players quality worth 7.5K?. A Getaway players quality at say 8K, a Twilight Zone players quality at say 9K.
          Starting to get close to a new machine price isn't it?.
          I'd say 3.5k at the most in it's current condition.
          Replace the playfield and all that is required to bring it back to near new and then maybe 6K but even then I think you'd be struggling to sell it.
          You want an honest apprasile on a pinball's price I suggest seeing what an importer will give you for it as a trade in on a brand new machine and then double it.

              Thanks for assuming , but actually yes I think it is realistic and Jeff asked for feedback and opinions.

              A minty mint one is worth 10k+, spend 3-4k on parts and it would be mint.

              Labour is worth nothing these days its all for love.

              The trouble is there are so many peronalities and opinions in this hobby, no one is right or wrong.

                          Prices have gone nuts that's for sure. Bloody Hipsters have ruined our hobby. It was affordable once, I might go back to flying planes, it's cheaper!

                              That is a very good point. The harness is about the only part that isn't avaliable and the irony is it is one part that should be replaced as wires do deteriate and simply washing them does nothing more than make them look clean externally. Changing connectors is good but again, crimped onto old wires that are still as old as the machine is not a very good idea.
                              Everyone that recos video machines understands the importance of a new wiring harness but this seems to be totally overlooked by pinball restorers probably because it isn't avaliable off the shelf and every machine is slightly different.
                              What would a brand new pinball harness be worth?. I have made millions of harnesses in my time, re-wired many an EM after some fool put a nail in to replace blown fuses, even went for a job at STC making harnesses for F-18 Hornets as part of Australia's content for that US fighter and worked at Olex Cables for some time. Like I say, many many harneses and never gave post EM pinballs a thought.
                              Could be a lot of money in this for someone set to retire post Co-Vid.

                              By the way I agree, EBD suks. One machine i could never master and all left flipper shots. Eight Ball Champ is a better machine but shit, now that I mentioned than machine you watch it's price go through the roof.
