Pinball Art USA is delighted to partner with an avid pinball backglass collector and host his collection on our site. Collecting backglass has been a fun part of his life these last 50 years. It began as an interest and became a simple and entertaining sideline. Now in retirement, it was time to share his collection with others. He has asked Pinball Art USA to offer his collection on our website.
This collection was acquired globally and included buying, selling and trading with other collectors, distributors and pinball enthusiasts worldwide. Until recently most of the collection had remained in the containers the manufacturer used for shipping. Among the collection were 152 backglass with 66 different images. The condition of the NOS and USED backglass ranged from Mint to average and broken. Broken? Yes, Broken! Backglass are fragile, after all.

Investment VALUE thought
"Although a backglass may be damaged it may remain a rare and vintage collectable.
In some instances even a severly damaged backglass may indeed be the single usable survivor available for reproduction and historical purposes."

THE REAL THING!!!
Rating pinball backglass is a subjective view based on one's experience. Every backglass has imperfections, from a MINT to a Used. What is looked for are chips in the glass and damage to the print, such as chipping, flaking, cracking, and fading. The majority of this collection is exceptional without these common problems. You will find ratings ranging from NOS MINT 10, being the highest quality, to a USED 4. You will also find that some of the NOS are not always Mint, and some of the Used can be a 10.
