One of the most amazing pure mechanical games is Rockola World Series. It keeps track of balls, strikes, outs, runs and men on base.
A guy at PPM had just purchased one and was fixing it up, but he showed me how the mechanics have to be tuned just right for the game to work correctly. Must have been an early OP nightmare game to service but I bet it raked in a lot of money.
