    Those look like Molentin billard balls to me.

    #3402 56 days ago
    Quoted from Gott_Lieb:

    AFAIK New York was the only one with stars. They must have repurposed the credit unit to handle extra balls instead. I just thought it was neat, and something that I never noticed before.

    Agreed. It is indeed a neat artistic touch!

    #3403 56 days ago

    I was wrong it is pointy people balls

    It's the Big Daddy women gone country!

    #3425 50 days ago
    Quoted from Gott_Lieb:

    It's the Big Daddy women gone country!

    Ha! This is Tom's "Mystery Artist". ala Grand Tour, Star-Jet, etc.

    #3426 49 days ago
    Quoted from AvidListener:

    Ha! This is Tom's "Mystery Artist". ala Grand Tour, Star-Jet, etc.

    I was going to say Sky Raider women, but I thought they were Molentin.

    #3427 49 days ago

    Someday I will do more research and write an article or conduct a seminar on these mystery artists from BLY & WMS in the 60s. One i call the Caniff inspired artist and the other the V-chin guy ( Bally pins like Trio and Blue Ribbon etc)

    #3428 48 days ago

    another clue
    from other area of PF

    On Beam by Bally
    https://www.ipdb.org/showpic.pl?id=1715&picno=23062
    While ipdb.org says that the artist is C.Marche
    I am not entirely convinced
    as some of the faces look a lot like they could have
    been done by the "mystery" artist.

    Main reason for my thinking that is that I have a copy of letter
    that C.Marche wrote years ago before he passed;
    with the list of games that he did the art for
    and On Beam is not on that list.

    Rocket III: https://www.ipdb.org/showpic.pl?id=1989&picno=44272&zoom=1

    Interesting consideration for the On Beam artwork. I can maybe see a touch of the Mystery Artist in the work (although, it is not nearly as recognizable as most of the MA pieces), but I don't see signature Marche either

    I think this one is called "Extra Large Creepy Girl Picnikking" OR, it may be a CC Fire Cracker - https://www.ipdb.org/showpic.pl?id=850&picno=25601 I really don't see how this is a Parker art package. Looks like someone trying to copy Parker.

    The artwork on the plastics made this easy for me to find, even though I've never played one:

    Thought I posted the answer already from my tablet, must have not had wifi.
    anyway CCoin South Pacific
    https://www.ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=2244

    1st toy on Playfield?

    Wonder if this was CCoin's answer to WMS Tradewinds
    Both deal with South Pacific islands and NSEW compass headings?
