57_Superball.jpg
758 viewsAn exciting finish to 'Superball!' The contestant landed the superball into the 'win' circle. A win with the superball was always exciting because the big doors would open one after the other as the audience cheered.
73_me.jpg
755 viewsThis is the original design for Most Expensive, the first of the game's three designs. If the signs look familiar, these are three of the four light stands used in the Five Price Tags game. A fourth price tag, not sporting a shelf for the price tag, was added for the 5PT game, and the 1-2-3 numbers were removable overlays. The bases with the red arrow motif were eventually redesigned, without shelves since Most Ex had gotten "dedicated" props.
69_PhoneHome.jpg
754 viewsThe 'Phone Home Game' involved a home contestant and an on stage player. Here, the contestant didn't want to look at the amount Barker was about to reveal because she was afraid she'd missed the product that could have earned $10,000. Unfortunately, she was proven right. But in the end, the two players split $5,000.

89_Kennedy_Telop.jpg

726 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!
