Auction Date Set...Pictures from Inside the Shuttered Deeproot Pinball Headquarters

The date for the bankruptcy auction for the disgraced financier Robert Mueller's failed pinball company Deeproot has finally been set. A company called Mel Davis Auctions will be auctioning off Deeproot's remaining assets in an on-line only auction starting March 14th.


I just went through the pictures of the items that are currently shown in the auction listing. Man, no whitewoods, no foam-core mockups of games, only one RAZA prototype. There has to have been more cool stuff than this. I wonder if the company's former employees walked off with all of the interesting stuff. Given how things went down at the company, I wouldn't be surprised if they did. The assets consist mostly of large industrial equipment and a bunch of equipment from the company's gym. The pics to give a good look at the inside of the company's secretive headquarters though.


Here's a link to the webpage for the auction and a bunch of pictures: https://mtdauctions.hibid.com/auction/352536/mel-davis-auctions-232---deeproot/

I know a former employee and your statement "I wonder if the company's former employees walked off with all of the interesting stuff. Given how things went down at the company, I wouldn't be surprised if they did. the employees." is not correct. The employees came into work one day, were all called in for a meeting, and then were all sent home with the building locked up. Maybe Robert managed to get the interesting stuff out, but it wasn't the employees.

Thanks for the reply! It certainly wouldn't be surprising in the least if Robert has some sort of shady plan to try to salvage all of the valuable Deeproot assets from the bankruptcy proceedings. The whole situation is very sad. I personally have had a lot of sympathy for the employees who were tricked into joining the organization by Robert. He deserves to come out of this situation with nothing.

Why is there no rich people who can earn almost nothing for a very long time, that loves pinball? I understand the need to make money, but I almost shiver when all I hear on pinball commercials from early 90s. It is all about how many coins you will earn and nothing about the love for the game. More like, cool toys, attract money.


Somehow it is almost people with less money that do more for the pinball community.

Those assembly stations look like what someone just starting to tinker in their garage might have.


I do like the auditorium chairs. I wish I had an auditorium where I worked...
