83key.jpg

514 viewsEvery TRIP in the house! The trip signs were flipped with an "Every Trip in the House" logo, each in a different color.Aug 27, 2007
78_seating.jpg
390 viewsYikes! Looking more like gals waiting for the doctor than game show models, Barker's Beauties do their best monkey sculpture in a green velvet seating group.Aug 27, 2007

73_spiegel.jpg
316 viewsJust about once every show, TPIR would mention "The Famous Spiegel Catalog Company", It became a staple of the show for about five years until the company decided to become more upscale and withdraw their game show support. "Spiegel, Chicago, 60609" is the best remembered tag line of this company, now based in Virginia. Aug 27, 2007
73_barbase.jpg
375 viewsThe H.J. Schierich Cabinet Co. of Louisville, Kentucky, flooded TPIR and "Concentration" with two ubiquitous items, their bar base (shown here) and a burner base with four electric burners in the design. The interior of the clam in the old days had the same design as the back side of the turntable. Wonder if that Formica counter glows in the dark?Aug 27, 2007

63_NightOpen.jpg
394 viewsFor Tom Kennedy's nighttime syndicated version, the camera dollied across the stage showing an array of prizes. Johnny Olson's opening spiel was: 'Here it is, all new...a show sparkling with excitement because a fortune in fabulous prizes may be won tonight...if THE PRICE IS RIGHT!Aug 27, 2007
10chances.jpg
499 viewsHere is a picture of the first 2 prizes being offered during a 1990s playing of 10 Chances. What's unusual about this shot is the fact that the prizes are generally placed on a split platform that is whisked away to reveal a car. Here, 2 prizes are behind a door and the car was revealed by sliding the entire train platform to the left.Aug 27, 2007
