I'll tell you this tale the controversial contender in 1931 for the 1st coin-op pinball machine is named Whoopee by the Out-Door Games Company and this is the ONLY picture I've ever seen of it, on the right page. I believe they had their few prototypes out on location first, but Automatic Industries actually made the first 10 Whiffle production games and had them out on location first! The story of these two companies and their battle to be first are told and shown in Steve Bushnell's pinball book vol 1 a fantastic read!

And before somebody mentions Log Cabin...I'm sorry but that to me is a trade stimulator Whiffle and the slew of early pins that followed are machines they take 5ยข and two men to move lol.

The three custom Williams pins made for the 1979 pinball movie TILT with Brooke Shields are owned by the creator Michael Sehnert, Cosmic Venus, Astrologic and Tilt. They are literally 1 of 1, oh and that dance by the Boss Hog like bar owner lol

Quoted from ForceFlow:

Well, as long as we're diving into some of the not-so-well-known rare pins, I have an Allied Leisure Super Picker. Full size pinball machine featuring Roy Clark--not the common cocktail game "the entertainer".
There was a 2-player version and a 4-player version. I have the 4 player version. There is a promo photo of Roy Clark standing next to the 2-player version, but that's the only photo of it that I've seen so far.
From what I've been able to tell, the games were made in anticipation of the continuation of an agreement with Roy Clark and Fascination / Allied Leisure, but that agreement dissolved before the game went into full production, and Allied Leisure later re-themed the game into Hoe Down--a generic western musical theme with all Roy Clark references removed.
Other than that, I have not been able to dig up any other info, or find anyone else who owns a Super Picker, either the 2-player or 4-player game.
I would be very surprised to find if I ended up with the only one, but I've come up empty between all the research I've done and all the other collectors I've talked to.
The game's previous owner said they had won it in some sort of contest sometime in the early 80s and owned it since then. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get any more info than that into the game's history.

It may be worth it to try and contact his family on Facebook or something, considering the how many cocktails made it out there I'm willing to bet a family member has some interesting pinball files over the negotiations or something dude!
