For awhile there they leveled off or even took a dip.
Just price checked an AFM.
These went for 3 to 4K recently.
Now they seem to be asking and getting 4.5 to 5.5k or more.

It's all about condition and what people are willing to pay.

Not sure who "they" are except that "they" are all different and in different locations and venues.

I'm not deep into the pin market but there seem to be huge differences in value depending on if a game is offered by a "retailer" or individual plus the value of individual pins sometimes rise while others fall and vice/versa. Some HUO games have lost value while some route games matain value.

Yeah, AFM seems to be in a rising value trend yet according to the ebay averages MM's are losing value.

Still gets back to what an individual is asking and what a buyer is willing to pay.

I paid $2500 for our AFM a year or so ago - lady sold it out of her home when her last kid went to college - she thought it was a fair price - I almost passed on the deal - if I was going to sell it I think $4k would be a decent price. I was in the retail game store in Jacksonville last week and I asked what they wanted for the AFM I found in the back room - answer was $6500 (and it wasn't as nice as mine - there are stories on other more game oriented forums with all kinds of different AFM prices that some thought were fair and some felt too high - LOL - buyers/sllers - no deal exactly like another and no AFM identical in condition.

IMO - the overall pin market is down and slow while a few titles remain "hot" and souglt after. Monster Bash seems to be trending up in value. TAFs seem to be holding their own as are TZs.
