A gottlieb / premier sys 3 alpha numeric game?  I've never heard of it prior to now.

From http://bostonpinball.biz/

Ebay avgs

Avg:  $862
Lo:  $108
Hi:  $1325
# over time period:  20

Avg w/o min & max:  $879

Also assuming the above numbers go back 36 months from 11/08 when list was last compiled and economy was healthier and people would spend more on "toys".

Today, IMO - $700 pin. 

Under no circumstance pay $2k!  Wait for it or search it out. 

Crazy to pay that when the best / most desired Gottlieb / Premier from this era is Stargate and that's a $1200 game today.

Just wondering - what makes this game so special?
Putting the "fun" in dysfunction every day...

Sounds like Russo was fishing for a sucker-fish.
