Auction offers visit to the past, investment opportunity, and fun

June 19, 2013 by  

Those wishing to relive a misspent youth spending money at their local arcade will be encouraged to know of an upcoming auction held by Captain’s Auction Warehouse here in Anaheim this weekend.

A variety of pinball machines and other arcade games will be auctioned off, and bidding will take place online as well as live at the location.

In addition to the fun of playing a game free that used to cost a quarter a play, many buyers enjoy sharing their love of these games with their own children. The pinball experience, in particular, is completely different when played on a physical machine rather than a virtual one on a computer.

To sweeten the purchase, or provide further justification for bidding on one of these machines, consider that pinball machines go up in value from 30% to 150% per year. Some buyers might speed a return on their investment by ordering a flyer printing or a banner to advertise their availability for play in a retail business or office.

Captain’s Auction Warehouse operates onsite auctions at its location at 4421 E. La Palma Ave., Anaheim while simultaneously conducting a live online auction. Auctions are held every six weeks and winners of such coin-operated games as Ms. Pac-Man, Centipede, and Addams’ Family Pinball can be from anywhere in the world. Captain’s Auction Warehouse has sent machines to all 50 states, as well as 30 countries.

The auction will be held at 11:00 am PST onsite and online this Saturday, June 22, at Event #20993.
