Over the past year, we have seen pinball prices jump considerably. Now is the perfect time to sell your pinball. For example, 2 years ago, the Addams Family Pinball Machine would sell used between $4000-$6000 depending on condition. Now, circa 2022, we are seeing this game sell used for $5000-$7000 depending on condition. That is a great increase in value. Games which used to sell for under $1000 are now commanding closer to $2000! Why? Well, a few reasons: (1) The pandemic kept alot of people home so many people discovered the fact that they wanted a pinball machine in their home; (2) Supply chain issues have impacted the manufacturers which has resulted in delays in new pinball machine production. This delay has led buyers to the used market which has pushed up demand and therefore price.
Will prices come down? Answer - most likely when supply catches up with demand. There are many new pinball machines in the pipeline and once these hit the streets, I would expect demand and prices to come down. Will it bottom out? No. But I would expect to see a market correction of 10-20% in value decrease.
