$9100 for Cobra Command laserdisc game https://bid.captainsauctionwarehouse.co ... /lot/19768 (about $15k CAD)
all the LDs are gonna be bonkers I just know it. Since we're dealing with newbies, I bet Dragon's Lair 1+2 and Space Ace somehow go for more than Thayer's Quest

but the pinball manufacturers have no stock, and you can leave with these real soon now.
With these prices, they could have sold 10% of their inventory and survive as a museum.

Small comment, but some (most?) of the games don't even look cosmetically ok, they are not pristine.. you can see that even from the shitty looking pics.

I'd expect some folks would pay top dollars for games you just don't find anymore, regardless of quality. But can't wait to see how much recent games sell for..

It was advertised as the largest pinball/arcade museum closing it's doors, even ran on big news channels.. so there's hype, fomo and also the idea it's never going to happen again, e.g. seeing up to 1000 games of all sorts being offered.

People with childhood memories will only see the titles they used to play, while thinking museum quality = perfect. Many buyers probably don't even know of Pinside or Facebook Marketplace for pinballs.. they just see this as a unique chance at something they didn't even think could ever be available to them.. again, childhood memories..

And, yeah, some folks that have been looking for their Grail game will not look twice..

Anyway, just my opinion. I would never pay those prices myself! Very interesting to see this just the same.

Edited : I see this has having an impact on prices on Pinside, Pin Rev and even here, even if minimal, but it will definitely add to the mix..
