Recently got a Bad Cats and am enjoying it, I recently bought a bunch of assorted backglass's at the last Morphy auction, and there was a Bad Cats backglass in one of the groups. I was thinking listing it for sale since mine is near perfect. But when I looked at them, one is different that the other, one has
the BAD CATS in mirror and the other in black, although there is mirror on that glass, just not on the BAD CATS! one has a tiled floor the other does not! and Python's picture is totally different! I could
not find any info on a reproduction of this glass, so what do I have here!! weird

Ok not 100% sure but the trash looks like it contains condoms and if so it is very rare backflash as Williams did not 337524-i.jpgt approve this hence only a handful were made.

There are 4 different versions of this glass that I know of.....

Anyone else notice the copyright is missing between the pool and Python on one of them? Dunno how that might factor in but just thought I'd point it out since it's easy to miss. : o

In the upcoming 3rd Issue of Pinball Magazine, which will have a cover story on Python Anghelo, he talks about what happened regarding these backglasses. I know of 3 different versions of the glass, as the one on the flyer has a different snake. Curious to find out what is different on the 4th version.

Wow great catch, I missed that one, here's a better pic, noticed that this glass also says GARBAGE on the can, Thought about selling it but now I am thinking on hanging on to it!

I read this thread and went out to look at mine. I actually have 2 BC's. Both BG's are w Python's hair blue, no "garbage" written on the can, both have blue tiled lines on ground and no condom near trash can.

I actually didn't know there were more than 1 version, apparently 4 versions. I too would love to see / know the differences.

OP Thanks for the info.

The other one I know of is on the flyer: I presume a prototype game, there is no Python Angelo head on the snake.

I knew I had seen this BG pictured or mentioned somewhere before.
