I always thought Card Game lost "New" from its title when the most familiar set (the one used through 2005) debuted, so it's interesting to see the New Card Game prop without "New" on it.

Also, the change to the red audience seats and CBS curtains happened in the spring of 1985, apparently.  I always thought it was the summer before Season 14 started.

I know it's common to see say, two one-prize games in the same show, but when there was more time to kill back in 1985, it's weird to see two quick two-prize games in the same show.

One Right Price needed to be in slot #4 so they could get to the station break quickly, but yeah, I was thinking Most Expensive there would have seemed less awkward.

And by the way, IUFB #2 is probably the longest bidding round I've ever seen.
