An on-line auction was conducted by Auction Masters to clear out any remaining items from the old Lieberman's location. The sale was mostly office furniture, decorations, vending and redemption equipment, but there were a few old pinballs and video games up for bid. The details from the arcade-related items can be viewed here.

Was time again for the Spring arcade auction in Des Moines. Temperatures were pleasant outside but the prices were red hot at Adventureland. Machines ranged from a working Pong clone (Red Baron TV Football) all the way up through a brand new Munsters Pro pinball, still in its crate. The crowd was average-sized but had deep pockets as can be seen from the auction results. If this trend continues, there should be plenty more excellent pieces at the fall sale, Saturday, November 30th, 2019.

The post-Thanksgiving Des Moines auction returned to Adventureland once again this year. Walter Day of Twin Galaxies fame was on-site during the preview period and was officially introduced at the start of the event. The sale featured some rarely seen dedicated cabaret machines, several other classics, an incredible number of pinball machines and even three pins still in their crates! Prices seemed average for the current market but the bids went high, arguably, for the highly sought-after pieces. Guessing a crowd of around 300 attended, keeping the aisles between machines very tight at times. Check out the bids and pictures in the auction database section. The next sale should be sometime around Easter 2019.
