Any updates kind sir?  The last one was about 5 months ago I think.  No rush, I know people are busy.

bostonpinball.biz keeps it updated.  Don't know how often, but it does change a little I've noted.  Most titles are trending a little low v/s real world right now.

I'll try and keep the link updated.

This is great  :applaud:

Have you thought about converting this to an Excel spreadsheet ? Or if you could adapt so that the headers stay so when you scroll you still know what the numbers mean.

Wow! I won't be buying an Elvira anytime soon.  :badmood:

The first number is the more important one.  It would be nicer if they interspersed the header periodically. 

Really if you want to learn pricing you have to haunt rgp and pinside and see what people are really paying and for what condition level.  These pricing guides are not keeping up with the current pinflation.  If you're buying a beater, be sure to factor in the parts cost to get it from Beater to Player or good condition, and make sure you don't get upside down in it.

Why don't you just link to bostonpinball.biz which never changes? it's only a click from there to the ebay page.

It only changes every 6 months. End of Nov, and end of May. Might as well save everyone one click. ;)

Cool.  They seem to report on ALL sales for a machine, not just current or recent sales.  So if a machine is trending up or down in price, that is pretty much washed clean by the older data.  For example, I looked up my machine, Theatre of Magic, and there is data going back to 03/2010 so it is hard to see what current trends are without exporting the data manually and running it through Excel.  I mean, in 2010/2011 it was selling on average for about half of what it is in 2013, but the overall average is pulled down by the old data.

I've always thought the various pinball price guides should have like an east coast / west coast / etc version.  Because where the game is sold can have a huge impact on "value"

Updated link (only a few months late...), but they've added an average for the past year which is nice.
