Look what I found. Had to share, I think this is really cool. This is the original pencil drawing on Mylar of the Black Knight playfield. It's pin-holed which means that this drawing was used to make the first playfield. They would push a pin through the Mylar drawing onto the blank wood to mark where to cut and drill. It's full of notes and signed by Steve Ritchie.

The machine that gave pinball the shot in the arm it needed to face the onslaught of video games that ruled arcades in the 80s!

In my top 10 of all time.

Thanks for sharing this!
