1950 Gottlieb "Bank A Ball" for sale. This game is 100% complete mechanically, has been sitting in storage for a long time, and is an extremely rare and fun to play title from this era. Would make an excellent candidate for a complete restoration.

The cabinet is original and is structurally sound, with just the normal wear and scuffs. Inside of the cabinet and backbox are both very clean, with no rust. The front door is incorrect, but coin slide functions fine.

The playfield is in good shape, shows wear in only a few areas, mostly around the two lower kick-out holes, but should clean up nicely. The inserts are all present and level. The playfield plastics are bad, but one-off custom reproductions are available, if desired.

The backglass is a nice original and is in very good shape, with only a few minor wear spots.

Score/instruction card is missing.

All woodrail games will come with a nice set of either metal or wooden legs of correct length, as appropriate.

Please see pictures for complete details, and PM me with any questions, etc.
NOTE: Please use the following email address for all questions/requests: __________@__________________ [email removed]. Thanks!

Payment methods accepted include: PayPal, Cashier's Check, Money Order, Cash. If picking the game up in person in Alameda, CA we will have someone to assist with loading, etc. If shipping, we prefer to use NAVL.

NOTE: This game comes from the collection of the non-profit Pacific Pinball Museum (PPM) located in Alameda, CA, and is one of our duplicates of certain titles that we are selling in order to reduce our warehouse storage needs and to raise funds for the PPM. In addition to certain EM and Solid State titles from the 60's and 70's, we will also be listing for sale several Gottlieb woodrail titles from the late 1940's to early 1960's over the course of the next several weeks.
