I've got a project I'm going to be working on, and I'm looking for the community's opinions on what their favorite single piece of pinball art is. Not a whole playfield or back glass, just the best single part of it. I'm definitely looking for iconic stuff, but I'm also looking for more obscure things as well. I have my own ideas, but I want to make something that makes a lot of people smile, not just me. So, if you saw a pinball collage, what would you be happy or even surprised to see? What would you be sad didn't make it?

Here's two examples.

Iconic:

Obscure:

I appreciate any suggestions you guys might have. I'm hoping to make something really special.

Rollergames isn't obscure...it's just awesome.

Love this whole game...miss the art, just don't miss the gameplay...bummer.

This is my latest favorite. Its a one of a kind out of chalk and probably done in the 60's if I had to guess as I cant find too much on the artist that signed it. Its laminated to a board so thats why there's a glare in the middle from the flash.

Cliche is okay! I'd hate to leave out something important like them laser curls!

The artwork on the entire Future Spa pin rocks! Love it! I get a "woody" just thinking about it!
Like this, only with my pecker!

Too many to list, but I LOVE the late 70s/early 80s Bally back glasses. Centaur is one, but there are so many others, such as Fathom, Paragon, EBD, Frontier, SI, SBM and many others. I'll never stop worshipping Paul Faris. I believe he also did the Grand Lizard prototype back glass. Too bad it couldn't be altered to accommodate the alphanumeric display. It's far superior.

Not sure if this is what you meant by art, but it does look great:

I like the other detail of the PO'd girl on Strikes and Spares as it reminds me of something I would do. Actually, the whole backglass is really done well. Can't say anything bad about the S & S red headed girl or her hotpants & tube top.
