Super Auctions (TX)

by Wes Southern

The Pinball auctions have become my favorite part of theseevents. There is something about Pinball machines that touch some unknown'kick-ass' nerve in my skull. It's too bad I don't have a nice arcade sizebasement to put a few pinball machines and such in. Something we all should workfor I guess. A goal to reach in our lifetimes to live in the 80's Aladdin'sCastle or Chucky Cheese every evening after work.

In the end not the best of these auctions I have been to, but it is always fun to play some classic pinball and arcade machines on free play. I was in a bit of a hurry though as Quakecon 2k3 was also in town. So I said goodbye to the auction after one last game of Earthshaker.

The arcade list was only complete for the first row of gamesleaving out the prices for the three other rows, the gentleman who usuallyrecords the values felt the prices were going out of control and there was noneed to record more. I'd have to agree :

Listed in the order they were auctioned off. Prices recorded
are the hammer prices. Please add 13% buyers premium + 8.25%
sales tax to figure what was actually paid for the machine.
