Quoted from cfh:

Just put a "new" 16 foot 1962 CCM Royal Crown ball bowler at the VFW to compliment the 20 foot 1964 Majestic ball bowler. I really like this Royal Crown, the game selection is excellent on this model. Also it has the "traditional" style wedge pin hood. Looks very 1950s.

I have this EXACT model bowler and it is AWESOME! Anyways, can I ask you if you had the bracket that goes on top of the pinsetter, that the pin hood fits down on? What did you do for yours, because the heavy pressure of my pin hood, just sits on top of the u-shaped bracket and I am afraid it is going to collapse the pinsetter assembly someday because of how heavy it is. Please let me know and Thanks in advance!


#363 4 years ago

THANKS Clay!!!

It is the smaller bracket on the TOP of that U-shaped bracket, that is attached to the pinsetter that I am MISSING. Is that 1-piece unit welded together ... OR ... does that smaller top piece slide off?

Please see picture below this post ... Part I need is circled in red ...

Hi Bob

That looks FANTASTIC! I can not THANK YOU enough, for doing this for me.

I do NOT know Bob at all ... he contacted me from this thread, and offered to go to the location that the ball bowler was at, and get the specs and measurements of that bracket I needed, and then told me, that he would make one up for me.

WOW, I was shocked at his very kind and generous offer. I really, really appreciate this and can't stress it enough. You are a very kind and caring man.

Clay, thank you also, for letting him take that bowler apart and get the specs that he needed.

I have the 1964 Williams "MINI GOLF" ... these are great and really fun games. Congratulations!

Quoted from wayner:

Just a wonderful collection-congrats.

THANKS, I appreciate that ... you also have a very nice collection ... great line-up.

#606 3 years ago


THANKS for the kind words about my collection. My 1955 United Deluxe Super Slugger DOES have 3 home run decks/ramps (lower, center, upper) ... it is the EXACT same set up, as you described.

Yes, I have actually hit that 50 home run hole shot 2 times and a friend has hit it 3 times. Believe me, it is very satisfying!

The golf games are both amazing. They are very fun and addicting. That other baseball game is a 1972 Chicago Coin "MINI BASEBALL". It's simple and very fun.

I am always looking for rare, collectible and different EM games and coin-op stuff. I just picked up a BEAUTIFUL & RESTORED 1954 Genco "TWO PLAYER BASKETBALL" game, that Bill Heatherly did. I will post pictures of that soon. THANKS again!


#609 3 years ago

ZNET (Bruce)

Yes, you are correct on all of that ... what it basically comes down to, it is basically the same classic game, with the main differences being:

1 inning game vs.1 through 3 adjustable inning game

50 point home run hole vs. 30 point home run hole

Holes behind ramps (2 outside ramps are outside & center ramp is a home run

#610 3 years ago
Quoted from OLDPINGUY:

You know, People collect cars, watches, coins, stamps, paintings.....all as Art.
For me, that Game is nothing but Art!
What an honor to have one or play!

You are correct ... it is a BEAUTIFUL game to just look at, but it is even better to play it!

#611 3 years ago

Shows the two comparisons, as stated above. MINE is the 1955 model and ZNET'S is the 1956 model.





#612 3 years ago

The scoring holes, UNDER the 3 home run bleachers/decks ... also score a little bit differently.

I see I did NOT have my green plexiglas cover, that goes on top and over the upper deck home run bleachers and 50 point scoring hole area ... but it IS there now.

I better update some of my pictures

#613 3 years ago


I'm sorry for posting the pitch & bat stuff in this thread. I forgot the seperate thread for that ...
My age is playing with my memory again!

#631 3 years ago

ZNET (Bruce)

On the 1955 Super Slugger , you get the 10 runs for hitting any of the 3 home run decks like you stated, then it scores just like real baseball ... 1 more run with no men on base, 2 more runs for 1 man on base, 3 more runs for 2 men on base and 4 more runs for the good old grand slam.


#632 3 years ago

One more thing ... as ZNET stated, the 1955 Super Slugger's back glass is a very pale green, so I had my 1955 back glass custom made to the darker green color (as my pictures show), as I believe it matches the cabinet and fits the game better and looks a lot nicer that way.

While we are on these ... here is my totally restored 1936 Daval "REEL 21" blacjack trade stimulator ... can bet a penny, nickle, dime or quarter. If you win, the coin that you played shows in the side window and pays accordingly in odds, to what coin you played. Also gives a gumball.

One more for you ... my original 1939 Pace Comet (dime) slot machine, with dual jackpot windows. I have not filled those up with the dimes yet.

I just picked up this 1959 ABT Frantz (US Marshal) gun game. I was told that the yellow version is very hard to come by and was mostly made in the blue version. Fun game!

This also followed me home. A 1947 Exhibit Supply Mauser Pistol Shooting Gallery (Dale Gun).
No Dave ... LOL ... I am not trying to copy you, it's just a very simple and really fun gun game, which does not take up a lot of space. This is also from my good friend Paul Reno.

Quoted from EM-PINMAN:

WOW, Yours looks super nice! I remember fondly playing the game as a kid but it was the blue version. Whats the measurements on yours? Maybe I can find a spot in the future for one.

Thank you sir, I will take the measurements for you tomorrow. Yes it is really clean and the bottom side panels are usually missing.

#950 2 years ago

I forgot to mention that I am getting a much nicer backglass for my 1947 Dale Gun Game.

#955 2 years ago

WOW, I never knew or would have even guessed that. Thanks Dennis

My new pick up today a 1960 Bally "SKILL DERBY".
It is the DELUXE version and that makes such a huge difference in game play, with having the horse "winning betting odds" and also the credit wheel on the playfield.

Very rare and fun game to play and the horse racing animation is very cool to watch.

It will look awesome next to my Bally "SKILL ROLL".
