About the Business

Pinball is the embodimant of the rebellious soul of western culture. The Soviets called us the decadent west. If only they knew the struggle for survival of David Gottlieb, Harry Williams, Raymond Maloney and Sam Stern they might have had more respect for the effort it took to provide a free nation with such wonderful decadence. Page through a pinball book and look at the graphics on the playfields and backglasses and it's like reading a graphic novel (a.k.a. comic) on the history of 20th century America. It's a gift to the world from the guys at Genco, Gottlieb, Bally, Williams and Data East and I'll do my part to preserve and contribute what I can.
