    Ballbaron.com would like to be the first to offer congratulations to all pinballers for making it possible to have the game inducted into Rochester, New York's Toy Hall of Fame. Now the question is, what particular machine will take its place in the museum? It would be good to know what choice each of you would make and a short description of what influences your choice.
    Maybe the Museum committee will be watching....

    Lol, you beat me posting about this by 3 mins. You can never choose just one...

    I think if you could only put one pinball machine in it would have to be Bally Fireball. It's a classic EM from 1972 that still has the best skill shot in pinball history! It also has a two or three ball multiball which was very rare. It has a large spinning disk in the middle and an early use of the kickback in the left outlane. Rounding out the features are a whirlpool lane that can feed the shooter lane and a captive ball. It is also one of a handful of pins to have zipper flippers. This pin was very revolutionary at the time and implemented many features seen to this day.

    To celebrate this auspicious occasion, ballbaron.com is having the "Hall of Fame Super Sale" and this was inspired by forum member gweempose.
    This will be a 10 day sale That starts now, with an 18% discount on the Ninja Ball. This is for sales of any amounts and is a deeper discount than my bulk rates.
    The coupon code is Fame2018.
    Personal thanks to Brian for getting this party started.

    I like the previous suggestion of Fireball, for the same reasons.

    IMO another good choice would be gtb sure shot. This is the table Roger Sharpe used to demonstrate that pinball was a game of skill, not gambling... thereby solidifying the notion of pinball as a game (or toy if you like). That kind of historical significance seems fitting for a museum.

    TAF would be another excellent choice as the best selling game of all time.

    Quoted from gweempose:

    TAF would be another excellent choice as the best selling game of all time.

    If I was going with a more modern game, that is the one I would pick as well.
