Went to the Indy auction and it was a bust. Only about 10-12 pins. Had
a decent Maverick that showed up late and an Incredible Hulk. Also a
Bride of Pinbot I think. Had a incredibly beat Black Knight. I left
after about 20 minutes. Pinball at the Zoo killed this auction. Ohh
well, 2 weeks till the Columbus auction. Have a good weekend everybody

Did you see what the Black Tiger and Maverick went for?

There was only one bid at $1250 on the Maverick, I think it was
a buy back.

Thanks for the report! I'm glad I stayed home to work on the truck instead this
time...

You missed a good auction at the 'Zoo. Nice Banzai Run, nice Space
Station, really nice MM with a gimpy flipper that would clean up very
well, some other decent sys11s, couple goofy European games (Mac's
Galaxy??) .. nice HRC that I wanted to play, but the optos were all out.
Probably, mmm 40? pins, and what appeared to be a decent selection of
vids from a pinballer's point of view. Lotta junk too. Hopefully
someone snagged prices.. they started to start things at 1pm and still
weren't finished starting when we left around 2.. :)

I would have loved to go to the Zoo. Just too much going on this weekend to get
ready for the car show in Sharonville next weekend. I'll try to make it next
year!
