    Submission Message
    This old game looks to be about 60 years old or more and had a very rough playfield. The marquee was still vibrant and in excellent condition. Brian Kuh watched as I played, and suggested that this machine may be some sort of counterfeit from the 50's, built to look like a machine from the 30's with intentional weathering of the various parts.

    We looked around the machine and could not find a manufacturer's mark. Regardless, it is an interesting machine.

    I've seen the scouting report on the shortstop:

    Excellent range.

    Strong throwing arm.

    No head.

    I never gave these old machines proper resect when I was a kid. I want to play arcade games, ones with full color and cool new features.

    Now that I have much more wisdom, I can look at these machines and see how beautiful they are, and how fun they are to play. Upper Deck is my favorite of all of them. The sounds are truly impressive for a 1972 machines. Even better than the crowd cheering and honking on the Intellivision, which was a much newer machine.

    Thanks for watching.

    I will be doing more over the following week.

    I remember playing classics like this back in the early 70's... Well played William... Accepted!!!
    I read that these were manufactured in 1941. Makes sense as this one looks like its been thru the war.
