1043 viewsOne of the neater reveals to come out of 80s Price. While Janice modeled these two monitors offered as an item up for bids, a shot of Rod was shown in monitor 1 while monitor 2 showed a pan of the four contestants!

972 viewsThe credits that made 'Price' fans cringe back in 1988. For the first time, credits were run off of a character generator instead of the old-fashioned crawl board. This experiment was short-lived until electronically-generated credits became the norm in the late 1990's.

916 viewsBob was in the middle of explaining the rules to 'Barker's Bargain Bar' when he noticed that the neon sign was missing. He joked that he just couldn't go on and then sat down on the green border of the big door, breaking a bulb! He then joked that he felt like he was on 'Truth or Consequences!' It's assumed that the neon sign was being repaired, but its absence was never explained.

893 viewsThrough most of the show's run, credits and most other on-screen graphics were done the 'old-fashioned way.' Here is a shot of what the credits looked like for the majority of this time. This episode aired in 1985.

875 viewsIt's a special day when you know what ALL the games are going to be before one is even played. The show, #5875D, will feature Super Ball, Range Game, 3 Strikes Plus, Bump, One Away and Grand Game.

869 viewsHe's at it again! Bob shows no mercy on an uncooperative lock when the key jams in "Master Key." Careful, Bob: that's a $5,000 key!!

792 viewsPoor picture quality, but you get the idea: from the same episode in 1988, this is how the show logo and copyright notice appeared. For trivia buffs, 'Price' used roman numerals for copyright notices until they switched permanently to Chyron. The year 1988 (MCMLXXXVIII) is the longest roman numeral year they ever had to type out for the credit drum.

748 viewsWhen a contestant bids $12000 on a motorcycle in the one bid, Barker wants to know why they can't ring it up on the readouts. (Note the flip card that reads TEST on top of the slate.)

740 viewsThis is the first time Bob entered the stage on September 4, 1972. Note that there was not yet a Barker Wall: the elements behind him became the background for the first item up for bids: a fur coat!

740 viewsA strike! Holly knocks down her bike and just about takes Janice out with it as well.

709 views"Something for every room in your home." This showcase always had a unique beginning: the stage was dark except for the chase lights around the doors. As the doors opened, revealing silhouettes of the prizes, the full lights would come on so that Johnny could describe the prizes.
