Vertigo Pinball Man, Mark, started his pinball journey as a child with a Big Deal in his basement. He played it a lot and it broke a lot—Vertigo Pinball Man learned at a young age how to fix pinball machines. Once he got a paper route, he discovered the Black Knight at the local bowling alley. The Black Knight was the recipient of ALL of his money. Needless to say, the Black Knight was the first pinball machine Vertigo Pinball Man purchased. Big Deal and Black Knight, both at Vertigo Pinball, were the start of Vertigo Pinball Man’s collection.
Vertigo Pinball Man began collecting and repairing/refurbishing his machines as well as buying and trading machines, whiles coordinating the Atlanta Head to Head Pinball League. Prior to opening Vertigo Pinball—all (yes all) of these pinball machines resided in Vertigo Man’s basement in Atlanta. Mrs. Vertigo Pinball and Vertigo Dog are happy to have the basement back.
