Stern Pinball: Collector shows off 40 pinball machines in his Aurora basement
On tonight’s WGN News at Five, we’re heading to the Aurora home of Dave Rautio. He’s collected more than 40 Stern Pinball machines, all on display and ready to play in his basement. Stern has been making pinball machines since the 1980s in Melrose Park, Illinois.
Company President Gary Stern, along members of the company’s design team, went to see the collection for themselves this afternoon. It was like taking a trip back in time, all of their work on display in pristine condition. Dave had the team sign all of the machines before they left.
