Auction 9!

Auction 9 happened one week after auction 8 , so there was little time to stock pile money for 2 auctions! Over all I had a good time at this auction held by US Amusements. one of the people I hung out with was Rick Goodman who summarized the auction pretty well in saying:


Well, today was a frustrating day at the big auction. As expected, there
were a lot of games -- probably more than 150 vids, and lots of pins too of
course. A good selection of games, in various conditions. Problem however
were the prices -- they were outrageous for the classics.

While I'll leave it to the usual gang to post the full results, here is
some of what they had there: a beautiful condition Asteroids (really top-notch
condition), outstanding Tempest cabaret/mini and also a nice Battlezone cabaret/mini,
Black Widow (monitor not working; average condition), Centipede (condition
not so great) and Millipede (average condition I guess), Satan's Hollow
(pretty poor condition), Firefox in good condition (monitor a little messed
up though), Burgertime (average condition I guess; control panel was a
pretty mediocre), a beautiful upright Space Invaders, nice Taito Space Invaders cocktail (actually two, but one
was converted into a Donkey Kong or something), a cocktail Space Invaders
Deluxe, Galaga (worked, but cosmetics were terrible), Galaxian (a little
better than Galaga's condition), several Ms Pacs, Gauntlet (plus several converted
into other games, as usual), Mr. Do and Mr. Do's Wild Ride (bad conditions), a
Joust 2 cabinet sadly converted into some "Plotting" game -- only the
side-art remained intact, a Joust cabinet with a Defender marquee and some Shinobi
ninja game control panel and game inside, Congo Bongo, etc etc.

Anyway, the prices really stank. For example: the Galaga, in HORRIBLE
condition, sold for $700! Should've been less than $250. The Tempest cabaret
was over $700, the Burgertime went for $425 I believe.

I think there was a lot of seller bidding going on, and in fact, most of
the nice classics (incl. the Asteroids, Burgertime, Blasteroids, a Ms Pac,
and about 6 others) I saw go back on one seller's truck (even after the high
prices). I believe the "less interesting" games probably went for some
decent deals, but in general the whole scene was rather depressing.

Oh, one cool thing I saw there -- a really old shooting game by Williams,
called "Ambush". Looked like it was from the 60's or early 70s. Cool, albeit
large cabinet (classic 2-panel back Williams style), with a lighted machine
gun mounted on the panel. The targets are a mechanical pop-up type -- army
stuff like tanks, boats, etc in a jungle environment, and they are
knocked down by some optical method. It wasn't working perfectly, but good
enough to jiggle a play or two out of, and it was quite interesting. I'm
sure it went for really cheap (it was actually in the "dead-row", but during
the preview period a guy managed to jiggle some play out of it while I was
there). If anyone has info on this game, I'd be interested in hearing about
it.


Good reporting Rick! Whit that said on to the prices including SOME Pinball
prices at special request.
