Best place to buy Marquee reproductions?
« on: April 13, 2003, 10:55:19 pm »
I've seen 3 places so far, that carry what seem to be pretty accurate marquee reproductions, but it is impossible to tell what quality these are just by looking at the pics on the websites.

Can anyone recommend a good place to buy repro Marquees?  (brand new only)
I'm planning on spending around $30.  Looking for a Centipede upright marquee, to be specific.

TIA

If you are looking for original arcade style marquees, is there any particular reason you would want a reproduction rather than a NOS?

If you drop a note on RGVAC/RGVAM you might get hooked up with a NOS cheaper than a reproduction.

I only paid $35 for an original Centipede marquee in brand new condition on E-bay.  Of course, that was about two and a half years ago, but still...

OSCAR, are you saying I can buy an ORIGINAL marquee, in MINT condition?  (new?)

Excuse my ignorance, but just what does NOS stand for?!  ???

Yes.  I just answered your PM.

NOS = New Old Stock
