Re: Future slot machine auctions poll

BP . I was trying to get more interest in future auctions. But this topic has dried up, people must be happy with eBay and Steve’s new ideas.

Re: Future slot machine auctions poll

The supply of sellers machines 20 and the sellers and buyers amount to 21! I would guess that 3 times this quantity would be required to run a viable auction. I would have thought the appetite to run an auction would have been higher. Steve at the Elephant house seems to be be going down the “tech” ...

Re: Ripplers: repro & real

Once bought a reproduction one on eBay but did not like the gameplay (you could set the paddles at a certain angle and get the high score centre column every time).
So sold it on at a Coventry auction and doubled my money!
It all depends on the day at auctions.

Who is online?

It has always puzzled me why there are always so many “users” online ?
I know it is the best site on the web, but so many visitors ?

Re: Coventry or Collectors auction

It would nice if the J’s could run an auction at Coventry, I would certainly support it with a couple of machines. Unsure about Steve’s new idea, still no mention of fees, and closed book bidding surely does not get the maximum amount for the seller. 2 people wanting a particular machine can realise...

Re: Elephant House Auctions

What we all want is for Jerry and Jeremy , and Steve to start running proper auctions as soon as possible. BUT not on the same day.

Re: Elephant House Auctions

Although I have bought machines from Steve when he ran at Huntingdon racecourse and also at the Elephant house, I would find it impossible to sell as HE never answers his emails or phone ! Once tried to sell a very collectible pinball (£1500 to £2000 ) with him and gave up, put it on eBay. Also if y...
