Gottlieb's "Flip a Card" Right on, way cool card themed pinball
machine from Gottlieb. Collectable vintage pinball machine showing
hippie college girls relaxing in the dorm. Pictures of lots of early
1970's dorm room memories like a dial phone (remember those), manual
typewriter, acoustic guitar and love posters on the wall.
Mechanically restored March 2017 with with care. Just some of the
new parts installed new legs, new playfield glass, new posts, new
bulls eye targets, new rubber, new lamps, new pop bumpers, new
flippers, new coin door, new coin entries, new locks, new levelers
and new hardware. Does it cost us more to do it right of course it
does. Great looking original cabinet nice original art glass great
original playfield with minimal wear and tear. Nice original that
doesn’t have the usual paint loss as most Flip a Cards earned tons
of your quarters.
Lots of pictures below of this nice survivor Flip a Card.
Great spinning card feature that flashes the card wheel on
the playfield to light up the playing cards in the back box. Sister
machine to the super popular 1969 Spin a Card and 1971 Drop a Card
"Flip a Card" always seems to be the hardest of the 3 “A Card”
series to find in good restorable condition. Many of these classic
pinball machines were played down to the bare wood earning your
dimes. In 1970 when this very nice Flip a Card was brand new you
might have been listening to "Spirit in the Sky" by Norman Greenbaum
which made it into the top ten that year.
Funky 1970's features found on Flip a Card:
- 3 brand new pop bumpers
- 7 brand new bulls eye targets
- Center hole spins to spot playing cards
- 11 rollover lanes to award cards
- Make all the cards lights 3 specials win tons of free
games Light animation on the back box (made cards light up)
- 2 brand new flippers
- End of game match number
This nice 47 year old Flip a Card is freshly rebuilt (March
2017) and plays like a dream come true. Pinrescue installed lots of
new parts and took our time tuning it to play like new. It has a
good original cabinet, nice chrome door, very nice original art
glass and playfield just the way we like to find them before doing
our 40+ hour overhaul.
Pinrescue has safely shipped to nearly every state (inside
insured $500 delivery charge) and proudly offer long term service
contracts local to us in the greater NYC to Washington DC area.
Pinrescue has had the pleasure of restoring several Flip a
Cards over the years but this is the first one we have been able to
list on our website it will sell fast.
