Quoted from DennisDodel:

Interesting glass Ryan. It has the mysterious "BGS" that also appeared on a Bounty repro. glass. As far as I know, no one has been able to identify the maker of that glass. Please consider posting photos of your glass to the Ballerina listing on the IPDB. Thanks!

Hey Dennis! Your posting inspired me to dig out a Bounty glass (it's actually plexiglass) that I picked up years ago. It's not a BGS glass, but I'm confident that it's not a Bally glass either, even though it carries the Bally trademark logo at the top. That's kind of strange, as all of the other reproduction glasses that I own do not have the trademark. Maybe this was manufactured in Canada; I think that I got from Bernie in New Brunswick.

I just got my first bingo. So naturally, I started looking for more.

A very clean looking Touchdown...

Hi Jon. Definitely aftermarket. Good enough for the street. I have seen a few repo. glasses with the Bally logo, but not many.

Here's a NOS Bounty repro with the logo. I bought it 6 years before I found a Bounty to put it in, so I had it framed. Now I still need to do something about a cab as the one I found was a total wreck and basically fell apart. I have a near perfect empty Bonanza cabinet but the front configuration is incorrect, so I need to find a replacement or have one made. Maybe some day I'll even get around to it.

Played this cool mechanical sounding nickel two card bingo in Royal Arcade on Seaside Hts N.J.(FUNTOWN PIER)boardwalk back in the late 1960's. The arcade owner would pay you out in Cigarettes instead of cash and i rememeber winning a carton for a 100 replays.

I also was lucky enough to find a DUDE RANCH in the basement of a dollar store about a mile from my home a few years ago in very bad mechanical condition for $75.I restored it and played it for a while before sending it to its new home because i had to make room for a Bally Bikini.

This game had a feature that no other early 1950's bingo had. It gave the player a chance to win in line on both cards instead of the standard one card only pay off. The select a number feature by way of the metal control knob on the front of the machine made this game a fun player and gave a player many more chances at winning replays.Bally added a super card into the mix which is also a nice feature to shoot for when your two larger cards are not helping you out.Its super line payout feature was icing on the cake if a player could score when it was lit.

Over all just a beautiful looking/playing western theme bingo (which Bally really didn't make that many cowboy themed bingos).If you get a chance to pick one up don't pass it by. Another game i wish i kept for sentimental reasons.

I visited the Spark Museum in Bellingham, WA (90 miles north of Seattle) and saw a Broadway they had advertised on Craigslist months earlier. They don't know much about it, and didn't realize it was a gambling game. The man who showed the game said they wanted it gone and suggested it must be worth something, maybe $200, so I'm thinking they would accept $100 or $50. It seemed pretty clean and worth posting, something that could be a fun project for someone who wants a magic squares game.

As for the game, here are a few things I noticed:

Cosmetically very presentable, with a very nice backglass.
Backglass has an area of paint loss at bottom right and a few spots along the top. Otherwise, excellent.
They don't know the working condition of the game, but it sounded like it has been stored for years.
No keys but the rear door is open and the backglass side rails are off. The front door looks like it is open but I didn't test it.
I didn't see the backglass side rails. The guy showing the game was not the owner. Maybe the owner has the rails - I didn't ask.
Front door has a chip out the top right corner.
Playfield has mild dirt rings but no paint loss. Original S/I cards are present. The playfied glass is cracked.
I didn't see loose wires or obviously missing parts in the head.
There is some odd plastic-coated wiring on the right side of the cabinet head in the photos. I'm not sure what that is, maybe someone else has an idea.

If someone is interested, here is a link to the museum:

There are lots of really hard to find, reasonably priced parts on ebay right now.

Coin entry bezels, restrictor plates, a full magic squares unit(!), replay registers 3 and 4 digits, and multiple select-a-spot selector dials. Also, a shooter housing for a United game (pretty hard to find), and a United lifter cover.

All parts in reasonable(ish) shape. Even a NOS Gay Time door!
