I was watching some reruns of American Pickers on Hulu the other night. I think is was one of the episodes from 2014.
I want to talk about back glasses on Bally Wizard! and Bally Captain Fantastic.
Captain Fantastic: I think we all know of the two different back glasses on this pin. The one with the girl who has her hand in some dude's pants. And the Stars glass that covers the offending hand with a star.
So, try this one on.
American Pickers Frank and Mike are in some guy's shop who used to work on pinballs and arcades. This old boy has some neat stuff laying around. He also has a Bally Wizard!. He is talking on the value of Wizard! and adds another piece of information and I'm wondering if he knew what he was talking about. He is talking about there being another back glass for Wizard!.
This is what he said: The first 500 Wizards had a back glass that had Ann Margaret's hands inside Roger Daltry's pants. But Ann Margaret pitched a bitch with Bally and made Bally go out and try to get all of the offending back glasses back but some escaped. And the replacement glasses placed Ann Margaret's right hand across Daltry's shoulders and the snake was placed in his pants.
He also said if you had a Wizard with the offending back glass that it would be worth a lot of money.
So, did this guy get his wires crossed between Wizard and Captain Fantastic? Or did he know what he was talking about? Or was he just BSing for the cameras?
Is there another Wizard! back glass? A dirty one?
It sound like BS to me but I have to ask.
Here is the back glass with the snake that I know about.
