Gottlieb's "Capt Card " Popular
and rare add a ball version of Gottliebís super drop target game
High Hand. Desirable "Card themed" pinball machine with 16 drop
targets in mechanically restored condition. Restoration completed
mid April 2015, The most drop targets (16 drop targets) on any
big flipper game to challenge your pinball skill. Super difficult
hole shot for Wows and bonus. The favorite pinball machine
of many players. Super high rated pinball machine. A perfect
complement if you have a Royal Flush, Jacks Open, Drop a Card, Top
Card, Joker Poker or any of the Gottlieb "Card themed" pinball
machines. Both these "Capt Card" machines play the same as when
they were new. One looks nearly new with new coin door, coin
entry, side rails, legs, furniture quality repaint and all new
hardware. We at Pinrescue are lucky to have a 2ndcapt
card in a nice looking original cabinet nice playfield and good
art glass. If we donít restore the cabinet it will be $3500 plus
shipping. Both are ready to ship April 2015.
Pinrescue likes Capt Card and listed are just some of the new
parts installed on both these fine examples (restoration on both
completed April 2015):
New playfield glass
nice playfield with a brand new star rollover, new lane guides
and all new posts.
New pop bumper and brand new flippers
100% new lamps, rubber, cabinet switches, new locks, new
levelers and bolts.
Pinrescue has real trouble getting quality Gottlieb drop target
games on our webpage most sell before we get to list them. These
are the first Capt Cards we have been able to get listed on our
webpage we have been doing only vintage pinball full time for
nearly 2 decades and both of these will sell fast.
Nice original art glasses, playfields and your choice of a
furniture grade cabinet or good original cabinet . Clean as can be
inside and out see our clear pictures below.
The year before Capt Card rolled out of the Gottlieb factory 1973,
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 ponyed 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 "Capt Card".
