The Tuck Shop alone must be worth that.

My exact thoughts! Not sure this lot was listed well enough?

Can anyone identify the Ice Hockey game with two figures at each end?

I think you had to see in detail what was there as it would be easy to get carried away… All the Gunther Wolff machines had many missing parts and cabinets missing or disintegrating, so I classed most of this as parts.

All electromechanical machines were in poor condition with missing parts, including the Tuck Shop.

So I weighed up the 450 mile drive, storing the damn stuff and the risk of what you may actually get and limited myself… I guess others may see gold...

The seller was very honest, rotten and riddled with worm… Hopefully some of them will be saved.🤞

Yes, I noticed that - weird, as I don't really see what is achieved by having two men so close together.
Even weirder is that the men don't actually look like hockey players.

One of my favourite games as a little lad spending all my pennies on holiday in the arcades and pier - always wanted one of these machines as well.
