pinball and arcade game auctions

basically there are three types of auctions involving pinball machines. The first is an online auction such as ebay, and we have already discussed that type. Then there are estate sales, and arcade game vending auctions. Estate sales speak for themselves and occasionally you can discover one or more pinball machines included in the sale.

For the purposes of this page, we will discuss arcade game vending auctions. This type of auction has been around for quite some time, but often involved primarily operators and wholesale vendors in the past. Over the last few years these sales have become quite popular with collectors and home buyers, largely due to the heavy advertising usually associated with these types of sales. For that reason, we have noticed a spike in game sales pricing, particularly pinball machine auction prices. One other reason is the seller "buyback", discussed below. These days it is not uncommon to see collectors in bid wars that push the hammer prices way above what was believed to be the "perceived value" of that tile. Often, huge prices are even paid for "parts machines" at this type of sale. Every once in a while, you can still purchase a very nice machine, "under the money" so to speak, especially if you buy a game that is not fully working and can repair it yourself. You can also buy some great arcade and video games at these auctions well below retail prices.
prices shown for auction sales

may not always be a true reflection of selling price, as many times games are bought back by the seller in order to keep a game from selling for a price below what the seller will accept for the game.
the bottom line for auction prices

is to think of it as what price was needed to be the high bidder and be able to take the game home on that day. Therefore on that day, it took that amount, to leave with the game. Regarless of wheather or not the seller bought it back, or if it sold to someone else, it was still the high bid price to take that game home, on that particular day.
remember  that most arcade game auctions include an additional buyers premium fee added to the hammer price, and also applicable state sales tax. This buyers premium may be as high as 18%, and sales tax could be as high as 8%. Under this instance a game listed as sold for $1000 at auction, may have actually been $1,260 out the door with fees added. So keep this in mind when viewing auction price results.

We Encourage you to attend an arcade game vending auction and experience the thrill and atmosphere of the sale.
