I haven’t had a Nip-It come through my store since I moved in my current location in 2005. Wow! and it is super nice getting the deluxe treatment by Steveo! This is going to be collector’s quality!
This is the 1973 mechanical Bally pin designed by Ted Zale, featuring the art of Dick White showing off his talent to be fun and silly. Its notoriety is that it violated the historical time-line of being at Arnold’s in the TV show Happy Days.
This is the last electro-mechanical Bally pin to use Zipper Flippers. In addition to multi-ball, there is a second button next to the right flipper button featured as the Gator Button to activate the “Balligator” at the top of the playfield to grab the ball into a high scoring lane.
