RarityGuide.com Staff attended the Pacific Pinball Expo this weekend in San Rafael, California.
Was a great exposition, nearly 400 pinball machines, from antique to modern, all set on free to play!
This was also a learning experience on the history of pinball machines. Many histrocally signifcant machines were there, such as a 1947 Humpty Dumpty by Gottlieb which was the 1st pinball machine to feature flippers!
In addition, all proceeds went to the Pacific Pinball Museum, a 501 c 3 non-profit dedicated to the promotion and preservation of one of America’s great pastimes.
If you missed it this year, make sure not to miss it on 2010!
