at the radio station where i work, we have a buy/sell/trade show every morning, and a guy had a "circus queen" pinball machine on today. does that name mean anything?
Was this it?
There's also an older (1990) Simpsons machine that must have come out just a few years after the show did. It looks nice, too, but I hear Simpsons Pinball Party is fantastic.
It's cool that was in a deli. Must be something about food. One of my all-time favorites, Apollo 13, was in a burger shop in the small town where I went to college. It was a tiny place with enough room to have three or so small tables, enough room to stand and order/wait, and two pinball machines: a Guns 'n Roses and an Apollo 13 (based on the movie). You could go in there and order a sack of cheeseburgers for $2.50 and stand right next to the order window and play pinball while you waited.
Had never heard of Circus Queen, but it's apparently very old as pinball goes (1960). I can't imagine there are that many floating around out there. Have no idea what it's worth, but I'm sure someone out there would love it.
