OK, this one just in - very happy with the tremendous eye-appeal for the grade:

Delong meets Batter-Up. The perfect combination.

The commitment has been made on a 1959 Williams Pinch Hitter, waiting for a bat and get the thing delivered, I'm pumped can't wait to get it fired up.

It has always been a dream to own one, luckily a friend locally also likes old coin op machines so I didn't have to pay for shipping. The game definately needed the back glass with the players going around the bases. I can't wait to get it here and up and running. bounce

I was able to get this for under $2000, which is a really good price. The others I have seen for sale range from $2500 to $4000 and that doesn't include shipping. I lucky found this in my hometown.

Definately one purchase that I am really excited about.

Pete, there is a pinball restorer in St. Paul we may have to go there when I am down there next.

Thanks Tony, now the big question, That is the nicest 20 I have ever seen, what in the world makes it a 20is there erased writing? Even at that there is no way it warrants a 20 that card has the eye appeal of Nrmt or better.

Thanks Lee. I'll buy cards that look like this all day no matter what some dufus third party grader placed on the flip. I see two teeny flaws, but as you mention definitely not flawed enough to warrant a 20 as it was. There is some light chipping on the top right border and the letters "MC" in his name when printed looks like the ink skipped a little when produced. Other than that the card is phenonemal. It's funny how so many these days do not appreciate cards that look like this solely becaue of what numerical grade is showing on the flip. Just silly isn't it!! scratch

Amazing, raw that card would have probably got at least $50.

I did notice the partial "M", I think it is a variation so it will be really big bucks. All you need to do is post it on the other board and then put it up sale and get 10 times your money. graucho marx
