Auction Results: June 21, 2014

This auction was a lot bigger than the one in April, and there were some real treasures to be had--especially if you are a TRON fan. One collector was selling his collection, and he brought four TRON-related machines: two TRON's (an upright and a cocktail), and two Discs of TRON games--a normal upright and an environmental--which is one of the Holy Grails of coin-op collecting! In addition, there were cocktail versions of Defender and Tapper (the Budweiser version), as well as a couple of other games you don't see a lot of like Nibbler and Mr. Do's Castle.

The pinball selection wasn't bad, but there was nothing spectacular. Since I didn't see anything I wanted, I only stayed until they finished the classics row. I'll see if I can find the pinball results elsewhere. If I do, I'll post them.

Auction Results: February 15, 2014

This was probably the smallest auction I've ever attended at Winston-Salem. I got there before 11 AM, but they had already started on the first row--almost nothing in the initial "junk corner." There were only a handful of classic games, all in the first row. I was looking for a Galaga, but there weren't any. I did see a fully-working Daytona USA twin go for $200 and a couple of really nice (empty) Golden Tee Live and Silver Strike Bowling Live cabients that would have been great for MAME projects that they couldn't even sell for $5 each! I would have jumped at both of those deals...but I didn't have any way to get anything that big home.

The pinball selection, though small, was actually very high quality stuff, including a Medieval Madness--something you don't see every day! There were three that aren't on my list--Wizard and Flip-Flop (both EM machines) and Centaur. There were guys working on the two EMs the entire auction--and they were still working on them after the action was over! The Centaur was sitting between the two EMs, so I assume it was theirs as well. I have no idea what they were doing there if they weren't for sale. Too bad, too--I would have liked to have seen what the Centaur went for.

Auction Results: June 8, 2013

This was a quickie compared to some of the auctions in the past. We stayed to the very end--about 4 PM! Just not a ton of stuff this time, especially when it comes to pinball machines.

I went to this auction prepared to come home with a twin Daytona USA...and maybe a pinball machine. Instead, I came home empty-handed. There were no Daytona USA twins at this auction--which is kind of a rarity. The pinball selection was pretty sparse, and the stuff I was interested in--particularly the Star Trek: The Next Generation--has risen in price to the point where It's unlikely I'll ever own them.

There were some good games scattered around. There was a non-working TRON in a really nice cabinet; two working Missile Commands (one upright, one cocktail); a nice Burgertime (dedicated); a dedicated Frogger; and a dedicated Ladybug. There was also one of the nicest, most well-preserved 70s video games I've ever seen--a 1976 Midway Tornado Baseball that played perfectly and was so clean that it looked like it had never been touched. Oh--and there was a conversion the likes of which I've never seen--a Streetfighter II in a dedicated Punch-Out cabinet--with both monitors displaying the game at the same time. Crazy stuff.

Auction Results: October 13, 2012

This was a pretty big one, and the layout was really good. They arranged the equipment so that the juke boxes were in one of the game asiles, thus eliminating the need to spend an hour at the front of the room selling jukes before they got to the pinballs. As a result, despite the size of the auction, I was out of there by about 7 PM. Yes, I stayed to the very end for the first time in a LONG time. But that was only because I bought something and the checkout process is a nightmare.

There were lots of classic video games, some that you don't see very often. The first row had a pristine, fully-restored Defender, a beautiful Asteroids cocktail, and a Warlords cocktail that looked like it had just come out of the factory. I missed the last row (while sitting in line), but I listed the classic games that were in that row for the sake of showing what was there. The tradition of giving away (literally) the huge games (like Alpine Racer) continued--nobody wants them. It seems that Daytona USA has joined this category. There were three 25" twins--one went for $60, one went for $70, and one was given away. The $60 worked all the way! Wish I had had a big truck...

There were a ton of pins, too (as you can see below), including some rarities (Theatre of Magic--first time I've ever seen one at the auction) and a bunch of newer Sterns. Price-wise, the video games were about average (some really good). The pinball prices, on the other hand...I have never seen so many pins that went for $4000 or more in a single auciton. There were a couple of older games that were really nice and fully working that sold for very low prices, though...I lusted after them, but I didn't have any way to get them home.

I went to the auciton looking for a beater, dead pinball machine to use for my virtual pinball project. Mission accomplished...although, the one I really wanted went for far more money than any completely dead pinball machine should go for (in my opinion).

Auction Results: August 4, 2012

The last auction was one of the smallest I have been to...and this one was one of the biggest I've seen in a while. Lots of good classic video games in the first row and a few scattered around the room. The first row bunch included a couple you don't see often, including a Stunt Cycle, a Rally-X, a Zaxxon, and a Gyruss (both not working), as well as a pretty decent Track & Field. Some definite deals--a couple of really nice Ms. Pac-Man machines went for under $300. If they keep trending down like that, I might just have to break down and buy one.

Because the auction was so big, I didn't stick around for the pinball machines. There were some pretty nice EMs and a number of newer Sterns (including Spider-Man, which I actually didn't care for--first time I had played one). Nothing that really said "buy me" though.

Auction Results: June 2, 2012

This was one of the tiniest auctions I've been to in a while. Classic games were really scarce (which is why I recorded a few very non-classic games from the first row--just to have something to do). There weren't a lot of pinball machines either, although there were an unusually large number of electro-mechanical pins (ususally if there are one or two that's a lot). I thought about buying one of the non-working EM pins as a project, but I didn't want to spend more than $25 on something that I might never get working. It only went for twice that...but still. There were a lot of low prices. It seemed like the auctioneers just wanted to get done and get out of there.

Auction Results: September 17, 2011

This auction was a pretty decent sized one. There were some good classics in the first row (including a non-working Dragon's Lair--I wanted that for a DAPHNE machine, but it was way too pricey). I didn't stay past the pinball results, but in the last row there were quite a number of non-working rarities, including an Empire Strikes Back and a cockpit Omega Race. There was also a dedicated Mappy...not quite as rare, but still somewhat uncommon. Another interesting note: before I made my pinball coffee table, I had never heard of or seen Bally's Lost World pinball machine. There were two (non-working but very restorable) ones at this auction. Weird. There were a few things I was interested in, but I came home empty-handed.

Auction Results: February 5, 2011

I actually didn't make it to this auction. The prices and info here are courtesy of my friend Mike Richey, who was kind enough to take down the info on the first row and the pinball machines for me. He was much more observant than I usually am, too--I never notice when the owner of a game is bidding on it to jack up the price, but Rich did!

Auction Results: October 16, 2010

This was a rare occurance--a second auction in as many months. I don't remember Auction Game Sales ever doing this before. Not that I'm complaining, mind you.

This was a much smaller auction than the one in September. Even so, there were a lot of good classics. There were three Pole Positions and a (working and nice) Pole Position II, which is pretty different (you usually don't see many--especially not working--I only stayed long enough to see the first two go). There were tons of multi-games, but very few of the other staples like Ms. Pac-Man and Galaga. The pinball selection wasn't too bad, but a lot of the games were newer ones. (Stern's Harley Davidson is really fun, by the way--you should play it if you get the chance. The engine rumble feature is really cool.)

I didn't buy anything, as usual.

Auction Results: September 18, 2010

The size of the auction continues to fluctuate! This was a pretty big one--the first time in a while that there were double-rows of items in some places. Lots of classic games this time around, too--including some that you don't see very often, like Star Trek and Crystal Castles (two of them!). The pinball selection wasn't all that great (with a couple of stand-out exceptions), but they did have a couple of nice machines. I was considering a beautiful Mata Hari, but I didn't feel like spending $500. The big games along the outer walls continued their decline in price. I saw a couple of sit-down driving games go for $200 or less, and a twin Daytona USA sold for just $500. They literally gave away at least one item (a strange Borg game that was about 8 feet tall and, despite its Star Trek connection, was of no interest to me), and they literally couldn't give away a 50" Alpine Racer (it didn't work, but still...).

I actually arrived at the very beginning and stayed pretty much to the end this time. All I came home with was a new 13" monitor and a box of pinball back-glasses and monitor bezels.

Auction Results: June 5, 2010

The Winston-Salem auctions seem to be fluctuating between really big and really small here lately. This one was small. So small, in fact that even though I stayed until the last machine was auctioned, I was still out of there by 4:00 PM.

There were a few decent classic video games there this time around. There were also a number of really bad conversions--a Tron cabinet that had been covered on both sides with woodgrain contact paper and converted into a Sky Shark, for example. There were only a few multigames this time--the JAMMA ones went high, the one Ultracade MAME machine went really low (my friend Mike Nelson got that one). My friend Jim also got a game--a Tekkan that was in an original Gauntlet cabinet (another one of those really bad conversions). He only paid $75 for it--basically he wanted a decent but cheap monitor. Anybody who wanted a 25" monitor for a steal would have been in luck, too--some big, new(ish) games were going for insanely low prices...like an EA Sports golf game with a 25" monitor, fully working, for $50!

There were only a couple of things I was interested in. One was an old electro-mechanical submarine game called Sea Raider. My dad and I used to play that game on the boardwalk in Ocean City, Maryland. It was great for nostalgia...but not worth as much as it went for (at least not to me). The other thing I would have liked to have was a Doctor Who pinball machine. It was in good shape and went for a decent price...but I wasn't prepared to drop almost a grand on a game at the time. Ah, well...maybe next time.

Auction Results: April 10, 2010

The difference size- and attendance-wise between this auction and the one in February was amazing. This one was easily one of the biggest I've seen in years. Not a huge number of pinball machines (I've seen way more), but tons of video games with lots of classics to choose from. I had plans later in the evening so I only stayed for the first row, but even there tons of classics went on the block.

It was a buyer's market on Ms. Pac-Man (tons of them in varying states of repair), but there were some uncommon things as well. You hardly ever see Make Trax put in an appearance but there were two there (only one in the first row). There was also a cocktail Defender, which is something you rarely see. (I put in a lackluster bid on that one...it went cheap but I didn't want it that badly. A really nice Q*Bert rounded out the less-common list. Definitely some good deals to be had...although prices were really all over the place, with some good stuff going low and some non-working stuff going for nearly as much as identical working models sitting three games away. There were also some multi-games that went for pretty low prices.

Auction Results: February 6, 2010

I figured that this auction would be pretty small. Just a week after a major ice/snow storm and with a threat of more weather hanging over NC, I thought the crowds would stay away. That was true...but the consigners stayed away, too--so the choices were limited. I didn't bother to stay for the pins this time...everything that mildly interested me (the nice Baby Pac-Man and the Chexx Hockey) were both in the first row. So I split at around noon.

Aside from those two items, the most interesting (nay, fascinating) thing there for me was a stand-up cocktail Pengo. I didn't even know there WAS such a thing, and it looked original. If it weren't for the fact that I already have a Pengo (and a multi-game that also plays Pengo) I might have bought it. It had some board issues, but it went for a mere $50!

Auction Results: June 6, 2009

This auction was the typical June auction size-wise, with a relatively small number of items--but, boy...were there some classic gems in there. On the first row alone, there was a really nice Tapper (Bud version), an upright Red Baron that looked almost new from the front (some usual wear around the edges on the sides), a nice Space Invaders, and two really nice Asteroids, both of which went for under $250! Not much in the way of pinball machines this time, especially in the high-dollar range, but I did get to play a virtual pinball machine for the first time (Sponge Bob). It kinda sucked. Prices were all over the board, but tended toward what I'd consider the bargain range on most pieces. ($225 was the going rate for Ms. Pac-Man this time around. Remember when those things were $800-$1200?)

Despite the small size of the auction, they didn't get to the first row of pins until around 3:30 and I was getting tired so I didn't stay for the whole thing.

Auction Results: June 7, 2008

This was a particularly small auction--the bidding was done by a little after 4 PM. I actually stayed to the end this time, which is pretty unusual for me these days. The fact that there weren't a lot of items there has something to do with it, certainly--but this time I went with three friends who were on a mission to buy (even though I wasn't). And, as is typical of the auction, it took forever for people to pay. Two of my friends bought games, and the second of the two was in the third-to-last row auctioned. Even so, the bidding was over for the day by the time he was able to pay for his game.

Not a lot of classics this time around, and a strange scarcity of multi-games (although my friend did get a pretty nice one in a Dynamo cabinet for a good price). The trend of deals continued, with the prices at rock-bottom on pretty much everything (pins excepted). The classic video games were going cheap, but the biggest surprises were the big sit-down cabinets. The most fascinating (to me) was a Prop Cycle--working, with a 52" monitor--that went for $10!

I got pretty much everything that falls within the "classic" category, and all of the pinballs except for one (I was momentarily distracted). The only video games I missed were a few cocktails (Ms. Pac-Man, Gaplus (first cocktail version I remember seeing), Donkey Kong, and a couple of others) that were auctioned off before we arrived.

Auction Results: April 5, 2008

Strangely enough, although they generally only have an auction every three months or so in a single location, Auction Game Sales had its second auction in as many months on April 5, 2008. This was a pretty sizable auction--not huge, but respectably big. There weren't many classics, but there were a few gems. (I'd really like to find out what the beautiful Tron that was tucked away in the second row went for.) As was true in January, there were some good things in the first row--including a number of pinballs this time around! I only stayed for the first row. (I picked up my Family Guy pinball this week, so I wasn't really going to buy anything...unless it was something I just couldn't pass up, of course.) There were some good deals on the classic vids. None of the pins I stayed for were all that exciting for me...but they nearly all went for under $1000. Even the Multicades were going cheap in some cases. Guess the economy isn't as cheery as some would have us believe...

Auction Results: January 26, 2008

Until I looked at my site for this update, I didn't realize that this was the first auction I had attended in a year. Either the thrill is waning, or I simply don't have room for any more games. Either way, this one wasn't anything to write home about. I was happy to see some classics in the first row this time around. If they hadn't been there, I probably wouldn't have any results to post--I left after an hour or so. There were some decent games--a really nice Tempest was the one that stood out. There were a decent number of pins, including a Simpsons Pinball Party that was in decent shape, and a pretty nice Captain Fantastic--but I didn't see the results for those.

Auction Results: January 20, 2007

This was a fairly small auciton--not a whole lot of classics video game wise. Quite a few interesting pinballs, though--and equally interesting pinball prices. A few went pretty high--and not just the usual suspects (there was a Medieval Madness and a Safe Cracker). Video prices were pretty normal, except for one Asteroids machine that went pretty high and a lot of the environmental/sit down big screen games, which went really low for the most part. (Confidential Mission with a 60" screen and environmental cabinet went for around $400, for example) Thanks to my friend Greg, I got all the pinball prices (they went down one double row pretty fast and out of sync, so it was hard to keep up alone).

Auction Results: June 3, 2006

Compared to the last couple of auctions earlier this year (the results of which I didn't report because I didn't stay for long), the selection was rather small. I left before the last row was auctioned, but they were on a pace to be finished before 6 PM. Not bad.

Despite the small number of games, there were some interesting (though mostly non-working) gems in the bunch, including a working Atari Gotcha, a cockpit Omega Race and a cabaret Qix. The prices weren't too bad...in fact, some working JAMMA games went for crazy-low prices ($35-$50). The monitors are worth more than that!

Auction Results: November 7, 2005

This auction went a lot faster than any that I have been to in a while--not a lot of junk in the front corner, and not a lot of pool tables and such (maybe a quarter the normal number). As a result, I got almost all of the classic vids and just about every pinball machine.

Unfortunately, although there were lots of pins to choose from (many of the most popular around, actually), the classic vid selection was less than stellar. Unless you wanted a Ms. Pac-Man or a Galaga. Plenty of those, averaging about $400 for working, decent games. (I'd hate to be somebody who paid twice that a couple of years back...)

I only bid on one item--a non-working Wizard of Wor in so-so condition. There was this rather persistent (I'm being nice) dealer who tried like hell to talk me out of bidding at all--which made me determined to do so. Making him pay more than he wanted to pay for the thing was almost as satisfying as winning it myself. My guess: it'll go and sit in his warehouse for years. I would have brought it back to life and enjoyed it. Ah well...

Auction Results: June 4, 2005

Like the February 5th auction, this one was pretty small. Again, the first row was nothing but bartop games. Anticipating that, I arrived late. They actually made it down the first row, across the back and up the middle before 4 PM. Not bad.

The offerings were pretty sparse, but there were definitely some classic games going for bargain prices. Two that I wanted to see but didn't stick around for were a Mortal Kombat in a Joust cocktail cabinet (what a sin, that), and a beat-up but working sit down Spy Hunter. Fans of Atari cocktail games were in luck--there was a Centipede, a Dig Dug, and a Missile Command, all working and all sold at bargain basement prices!

Managed to get about a third of the pinball prices--the rest were still waiting to be auctioned when I left.

Auction Results: February 5, 2005

Video Games Pinball Machines

The February 5th auction was pretty small--apparently the trend of late as I understand it. There were actually no upright cabinets at all in the first row--instead, the cocktails and the bar top games (which are usually in the confused cluster in the front corner) were displayed here. This was actually a lot more efficient than the old method, and things moved along quickly throughout the day. I had to leave at around 4 PM, but by that time they were more than half way done--only two major rows remaining.

Some good classics--three Spy Hunter uprights (one of which was in pretty nice shape), and lots of Ms. Pac-Man and Galaga uprights (naturally). There were a couple of pretty rare cocktails, including a nice Tempest and a Karate Champ (which I had never seen prior to this auction). There were also several sad, converted classics in the junker row: a stripped Star Wars with a nice cabinet but with a Road Riot controller; a Tron that had been painted black and converted to 1942; and another Tron that had been painted black and converted to Arkanoid. Sigh.

Since my interest in pinball machines is growing on a daily basis, I did list many of the games that were present. Unfortunately, it's just a partial list--and I had to leave before most of them were auctioned off.

There were a bunch of good deals and a couple of surprisingly high prices. I didn't buy anything.

April 24 , 2004

The April 24th auction had a decent mix of classics. It must have been Space Invaders day--I saw at least three original Space Invaders uprights and a Deluxe Space Invaders. Lots of Double and Triple Donkey Kongs there as well. Organizationally, this auction was interesting in that they put a few pinballs in the first row--never seen them do that before. There was also a nice looking Timber--a game I've only seen one other time in person.

The junk and Megatouch pile in the front corner was HUGE this time, so the bidding on the first row didn't start until after 1:00 PM. I was prepared to stay for a while this time, but when I saw how slow things were going, I decided to leave after the first row was done. I therefore missed a bunch of classics--a nice-looking Tron, for example. Maybe next time I'll budget more time...but with the garage full and the research for the book complete, the compulsion just isn't there at the moment.

February 7, 2004

The February 7th auction was a big one. The last auction I attended (November 2003) was huge but disorganized--they didn't get to any of the classics until after I left (and I was there until 4 PM). This time, they put a lot of classics along the first row like they normally do. The table below shows the prices for the first row classic items. (I left early again--sorry.) Early on, it was a good day to buy Galaga machines--the first two, both original and in good shape, went for just $550 each! First row highlights include Dragon's Lair, Tron, and Discs of Tron.

In addition to these, there were a bunch of other classics that were in varying states of repair, including BurgerTime (and three at least two bad conversions in BurgerTime cabinets), Robotron (non-working--looked nice from the front, but it was water damaged head to toe as if it had been under a leaky roof), a Mulit-Williams, several Pac-Mans and Ms. Pac-Mans, a Gauntlet, Moon Patrol, a cabaret Battlezone, and too many others to name. Nothing I was too interested in, though, which is why I left.

Oh...and the infamous Mr. Do! Rag was in attendance.

June 7 , 2003

The June 7th auction was a pretty sizable one with a huge number of classic games on hand. I managed to record all the classics that sold before 3:00 PM or so, but I missed a lot of nice pieces that went later, including: a nice Bud Tapper, Hyper Sports, 3 Spy Hunters, a Missile Command, and a lot more that I can't even remember.

In the bunch that I did get, there were a huge number of Ms. Pac-Man and Galaga machines (both original and bootleg). There were also a couple of uncommon pieces, like Food Fight. That was the only machine I bid on all day, and (sadly) I lost. Didn't feel like spending another $500+ on a game at this point.

April 5 , 2003

The April 5th auction at Winston-Salem was smaller than the February auction, but there were a number of interesting items, including some games that you hardly ever see (when's the last time anybody saw Satan's Hollow at an auction...much less two at the same auction?) A lot of familiar games this time--a lot of them looked like ones that were present back in February.

I opted to get home before dark this time around, so I only stayed long enough for my friend and I to buy a game each. We left after only the first row and the back wall were completed. There were a lot of gems scattered throughout the other rows (including a beautiful Donkey Kong, a couple of Gyruss-es and a Time Pilot) and I regret missing them. But the trailer was full and it was nice to have the evening free. I managed to compile a pretty decent list of some of the classics that went before 3 PM or so.

February 8, 2003

The February 8th auction was a strange one indeed. Lots of high prices, and lots of odd price discrepencies--nice, dedicated machines goin

g for the same price (or less than) beat up games and conversions of the same type. Lots of high prices for non-working merchandise too.

There was a huge classic game selection on hand, including 2 Spy Hunters, 3 Asteroids, 3 Dig Dugs, 4 Centipedes, 10 Galagas, and a whopping 23 Ms. Pac-Mans (including conversions). There were also a number of rarer classics including Carnival, Baby Pac-Man, Budweiser Tapper, Mr. Do, and Lady Bug. Most of the Williams classics were represented, too: Defender, Stargate, Moon Patrol (2) and Joust were all there.

One other thing of interest was a huge lot of classic board sets. Most sold from $70-$90 each untested. A bit much in my opinion, even if you're talking Missile Command, Centipede, and Ms. Pac-Man (among others).
