Kiss Pinball Machine Offered for $25,000 on eBay
There's a lot of pricey Kiss merchandise available on eBay (and from the band's own website), but one of the most sought-after and expensive items, a fully-restored, autographed 1979 pinball machine, can be yours right now for a mere -- gulp! - $25,000.
OK, so that's a lot of money. After all, the guys on 'Pawn Stars' just bought one for $2,000. Also, you'd have to go to Chattanooga, Tenn., to pick it up. You see, postage isn't even included in that hefty price. But that's the bad news. The good: You'd have the most rocking pinball game in the world* in your home!
According to the Internet Pinball Machine Database (and who knew that existed!), 17,000 Kiss pinball machines were manufactured by Bally in 1979, at the height of the band's fame. Oddly enough, it doesn't play much of the band's music, (there's a brief, blippy version of 'Shout it Out Loud' after you lose a ball), but of course the masked marvel's painted faces are plastered all over it.
It's been a hard-hitting Kiss news week so far. Yesterday, we brought you the earth-shaking photograph that proved bassist Gene Simmons is much, much taller than drummer Eric Singer. Yes, for the Kiss knowledge you need the most, always turn to Ultimate Classic Rock.
