Game Exhibitor | History of Pinball

Where are you from?

I am from Vero Beach, Florida.

 

What do you collect?

I collect 30’s Prewar pinball machines.

 

Why do you collect?

 I collect the 30’s prewar pinball machines because I love the history of pinball and the absolute beauty of these machines.

Most of them are purely mechanical and a work of art. In the mid thirties the machines added dry cell batteries for power and by the end of the 30’s these machines were powered with electricity.

These machines were flipperless until after World War II.
