On eBay right now there’s a set of three clown-face drop targets for sale, but the base color is white—instead of yellow—which I have not seen before.
I don’t think Gottlieb used these clown-face drop targets on any other game besides JJ/JitB. Every single photograph of these games I have ever seen has yellow as a base color for the drop targets.
So I went to look at the flyers for these games. In both of them, the drop targets are white! Jumping Jack was released three months after Jack in the Box, so I can’t imagine it’s a fluke.
I emailed PBR to ask them about this mystery. Anybody here care to share their insight?
