^The "9" in Wink's version was blue (at least in the early episodes of the run that I checked).

On the pilot episode, the "4" was red; it became yellow for the series.

On the original 1974-76 version, the Big Numbers were as follows:
1 & 8 - blue/green
2 & 9 - hot magenta
3 - royal blue
4 & 7 - yellow/green
5 & 6 - sky blue (the 6 was slightly darker)

* The folding board from "Second Chance"
* The giant sign from "(The New) High Rollers" (1978-80)

What were those? Some kind of neon lighting?

I always thought the trilon travel puzzle board on Wheel of Fortune was amazing!
And all this could be yours if... The Price is Right

I forgot to add that the "Big Money" board from both Dawson's & Comb's run of Family Feud was cool. I'll admit the intro to both of these editions of Family Feud were pretty cool. I loved it when Gene Wood would say "On your Marks! Let's START THE FAMILY FEUD!!!!! And now, Here's THE STAR OF FAMILY FEUD, RICHARD DAWSON!!!!" or "RAY COMBS!!!!", and the big money board would do its animation. The display would have the word "FAMILY FEUD" (including the quotes" inverted, and then on the Dawson version (before he returned sometime in the early 90's I think) the display would then animate the board until "FAMILY FEUD" was shown. I know on the Combs version the board was the same, but the opening animation on the big money board was different. I'll also admit that I thought the displays that showed each family's bank during the 'Bullseye" round were pretty neat.

for me, the podiums used on jim langes version of name that tune, the original showcase podiums from tpir, and the dealers wheel from lmad 84.
all of this can be yours, if you can afford it.

My all-time favorite game show prop will always be:

The Magnificent Marble Machine.

It's not the "Big Money" board. I meant to say "Fast Money".

in your defense, a lot of international versions call it "big money" instead of "fast money"
