Thought it might be fun to run a pool to guess the total selling price of five pinballs coming up for auction on June 23rd (see link below to the actual auction).

https://benacosales.hibid.com/catal...-and-family-fun-centre---arcade-and-go-karts/

Cost of entry is NOW FREE. If you are interested in joining, post your guess below of the total selling price for the five pinball machines and the person that comes closest to the total selling price (under or over), wins the pool. Total selling price is before any commissions and taxes. You know how these auctions are, the selling prices can be all over the map so everyone has an even chance to win.

These are the pinball machines that are included in the pool. If any extra games are added to the auction, they will be excluded from the pool:

- Batman Forever
- Elvis
- Highspeed The Getaway II
- Black Pyramid
- Liberty Bell

Thought this might be something fun for those watching the auction but not interested in actually bidding. I will post a summary of all bids in this thread before the start of the auction.

Cut off to joint will be 9am on June 23rd. Who's in? Cheers.

Jim Wilks $19,999
Rockin $21,250
Sbird $22,500
MrMikeman $23,450
Kevin the 1984 Kid $24,000
Pinballjah $25,800
Luch $27,123.45
Kyriel $28,000
John Price $28,500
Guard $28,985
Saltimbanco $32,038.77

Ok, so lets make this a free pool then, more for bragging rights. I will start it off, I guess a total proceeds of $19,800.

Who else wants to guess?

Benaco, lol...check out the seperate auction if you'd also like to get the manuals!

Better by both Batman + Getaway pinballs, because both the manuals are auctioned off together, lol

If anyone has any pinball related prizes they like to add to the pool, please post them here. I will donate a signed Black Knight decal I got signed by legendary pinball designer Steve Richie for first prize :)5977EA11-4D14-47DB-B5D8-BF6F709224B3.jpeg

Doubling down on Mike's "scientific" calculation, lol: figured normal prices, added COVID surcharge, added a bit for auction fever + added FOMO!!!

Note that my extra .77 cents is critical to my estimate :)
