The Minstrel Man went for $5400.00. Sure didn't think it would fetch
that much. Someone really did get a pretty nice origional machine
though.But for $5400 PHEW! Think I'll go put a coat of wax on mine.I'm
shocked.

Well only if yours was as nice as this one and in original condition.
Same thing w/ KO, a very nice original just sold on ebay for $5,100. A
lesser KO sold in the high $2k range.

I didn't check it, but I hope it stayed in the
US. It's really bugging me that many of these
nice woodies are going overseas.

The winner seems to have a US location. (It's not me!)

It bothers me, too.

It's in the US. My friend was the one who bought this Minstrel Man on
ebay. He had a lot of nice EM's many years ago but sold them all and
went a different direction. We reconnected only two months ago, he
wanted to get back in the hobby, and said he wished he could get a
Knock-Out, but more than that he wanted a Minstrel Man! Soon after,
this one showed up on ebay! It was kismet. When the auction ended, I
called him right away, and he was really pumped. He then told me that
one thing that spurred him on was how it bothered him that this game
might have gone to Europe. I'm glad he bought it, too!

Hi all, I'm the guy that bought the Minstral Man. Yes after many years
I'm back in the hobby. In my hayday I had 20 games running at any one
time and owned about 80 or so, all em's. Jay from IPD is a great friend
of mine from the old days. Just wanted to say hi and glad to see the
hobby is strong and has a great web site for everyone. I live in San
Diego. Oh ya, I did not want to see the Minstrel Man going overseas. So
if you guys from Europe are reading this I'm gonna cost ya a ton of $$$
on Ebay if your going after OUR woodrails..... This is the first game
in my new collection. C Ya..... Bill

This is a bold challenge to our European friends, who have wills of
still and a favorable exchange rate on their side.

Hey dude, since you aren't shy about telling us you dropped 5.4 on the
woodie, tame my curiosity: I'd love to know - what was your maximum bid
as you stared down the axis powers? How damn far were you willing to
go? To what heights did your madness ascend?

It's great I can only imagine the looks on those guys faces after
having won so many of these "beat this" auctions.

Congrats!!! There is NO price too high for something you really
want...Enjoy! I hope to play one of those (MM {ha!}) some day. I got
lucky and had a chance to play a Gott. Knockout (my woodrail dream
game) when I went with Clay to Allentown. He had a side deal going on
with a guy in OH., who had a KILLER woodrail collection and was happy
to let us play any game(s) we wanted.

OldSchool

PS- What's with the overseas hate??? They like pins just like we do in
the USA. This is a worldwide hobby IMO. Like The Police said - "ONE
WORLD IS ENOUGH FOR ALL OF US"

Yeah, I don't get the ' shame it's gone outside the US'. They didn't
make pinaballs in the UK (as far as I know) so are we not allowed to
play them? Or only allowed the allocation that were originally exported
by the manufacturer, and no more. If they're all gone, that's it, were
not allowed to look elsewhere? I was lucky to find a Centaur II in
Germany - not very local but cheaper to ship than from the US.

I think you'll find there are one or two people in the USA importing
collectible items made elsewhere in the world.

No overseas hate here, not at all. And as for giving the euro croud a
run for the money that was just ebay bidding bullshit. I do believe
that the top woodrails are a piece of Americana that should stay in the
US if possible. Especially the minstrel man that goes strait to the
black history of the US showing the times that they had to endure.
