Hello from Amsterdam

Post by jappie »

Hello all!

My name is Jasper, I'm 41 years old and I live in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

For me, the interest in coin operated machines started with pinball machines of the late 80s and 90s: the ones I grew up playing. However, where most people seem to gravitate towards the more modern machines, my interest broadened out towards all generations of pinball and other coin operated games.

I own a small collection that currently stretches from a 1936 Bally Roundup 1-ball payout pinball machine to a 2006 Stern World Poker Tour. Some highlights include the Chicago Coin Basketball Champ and a 3rd generation Evans' Ten Strike. I don't own any penny machines yet, but who knows what the future might bring.

Every now and then, I post videos on my Youtube channel Ballen van Staal, which is definitely worth a visit if you're into pinball and coin operated stuff in general.

Nice to 'meet' you all! Here's to many fruitful discussions.

Wow, fantastic looking machines jappie.
Welcome to the forum, and thanks for joining.
Quite a few of us here have/have had pinballs, me included, but they sure take up a lot of room, especially if there are women in the house.
Best regards
BP :cool:
