There was a thread a few years ago about replacing those balls:

Thanks for the link. I have all the balls but still need to do some repairs on my BaB.

Greetings from Canada. Have owned this beautiful example of Flipper Pool since late last year. You may be able to tell from the pic that for a while, I had both Bank-A-Ball and Flipper Pool but have since sold the Bank-A-Ball. We decided that we play Flipper Pool more (the AAB is more fun at our house). The Bank-A-Ball was nice and had a pretty nice repainted cabinet (not original look). It was also missing all the pool balls. The Flipper Pool is in it's original glory and has all the pool balls save for #3 but I do have the replacement from PBR. Now to figure out how to install it. The Goatshed video will help a lot. Fun game.........hard to master but my wife has the high-score at our house.

That playfield looks to be in really nice shape! Good for you! That was my first pin, and replacing a broken billiard ball was my first EM repair. If I can do it, you can do it. I still love that animation!

Anyone notice anything about Bank-a-Ball/Flipper Pool's backglass that maybe
may be a little questionable?

#107 71 days ago

I can't see anything....gonna tell us?

#108 71 days ago

PinballFever I saw awhile back you repainted your cabinet. If you are up for sharing your colors I might think about doing my cabinet next year. I’ve owned my game for 6 months and still haven’t turned it on. This is going to be a 2022 project for sure and it’s going to be a keeper.

EJS I haven't repainted my cabinet yet. Maybe this spring.

Maybe that two couples are dancing while the dude is getting a record ready to play? But maybe he’s just queuing up the next hits while the music’s already jumpin’.

I'll take a stab at it. One couple is dancing like it's rock and roll, and the other couple is slow dancing.
Is that it?

Ding, Ding, Ding, Ding, Ding.. The Knowledgeable Master of Vintage Pinball Machines got it..
Yup. Without seeming odd, what song from the mid-60s era (or 50s) can be both fast and slow
danced to? For me, not any come to mind (at least not from the exact same portion of the song)..

Never noticed it before, but after you mentioned that there was something odd about the backglass scene, I figured I'd give it a critical look.
Ok, so here's another one. What's odd about the total art package on Gottlieb''s "Show Boat"? Photos can be seen on ipdb.

Total meaning including the playfield?
The backglass I haven't noticed anything. The playfield, the Guys are dressed as if
it's in the 50s, the Ladies as if it's in the 80s, but referring it as the total package,
I'd say that's not the correct answer..
I never had that game. Perhaps someone who has/had one may have a better guess..
