Advice on Where/How to sell a full size arcade machine that I won.

About a year ago I won a full size arcade game of confidential mission from Sony. I was thinking about selling it, and wondered if anyone had any good advice on where or how I could go about selling it. Are there dealers that specialize in this? Not really sure at all where to begin and thought you all might be able to point me in the right direction.

You can always use one of the arcade hauling guys who do national pickups. Buyers have to pay for the crating and transport of it, usually runs 250 or so. Check Ebay for shipping guys.

Ebay is definitely the way to go. Try holding out a little longer though. You want to hit the market closer to when people start thinking about Christmas; you'll get a lot more money. The prices and number of buyers at arcade auctions and Ebay by extension really go up in November; "say Buffy lets buy junior an arcade game I always wanted one when I was his age" bla bla bla...A fool and his money right

Not sure what I was going to ask for it. At this point I'm not really sure what it is worth. If somebody wants to make me an offer or talk about a price, feel free to email me at [email protected].
