1974 Gottlieb's "Capt Card". Rare as only 675 of these "Card Themed" pinball machines with 16 drop targets were ever made. The most drop targets (16 brand new drop targets) on any big flipper game to challenge your pinball skill. Super difficult hole shot for extra balls and bonus. Freshly restored late November 2012. The favorite pinball machine of many players. A perfect complement if you have a Royal Flush, Jacks Open, Pop a Card, Top Card, Joker Poker or any of the Gottlieb "Card themed" pinball machines. "Capt Card" plays the same as when it was new. This is the only the 2nd Capt Card Pinrescue has had the pleasure of restoring in the 15+ years we have been doing only vintage pinball full time for a living . Good chance once it is sold I will not have another one anytime soon.

 

Excellent Original cabinet and art glass average condition playfield with some typical wear mechanically rebuilt and fun to play. The year Capt Card rolled out of the Gottlieb factory, Doyle Brunson finished 11th place and Thomas "Amarillo Slim" Preston finished 12th in the World Series of Poker. Interesting to note that only 13 players ponied up the $10,000 entrance fee and the eventual winner Walter "Puggy" Pearson won $130,000 winner take all. Second place won zero dollars


Quality restored vintage pinball machines are a fun investment you and your family can enjoy every day. Muscle Cars from this era are bringing 6 figures when done right. Pinball machines may follow suit as the demand is booming (read Baby Boomers) and the supply of good working restored games is limited. Just where did the cool guys drive those Corvette's, Camaro's and Mustang's to back in 1970's? Straight to the local 7/11, Soda Shop, mall or bowling alley to play "High Hand"
