The Bally Playboy pinball machine came out in 1976 and was designed by Jim Patla with beautiful arts by Paul Farris. The backglass depicts Hugh Hefner with two of the most famous 1976 playmate rosters: Sondra Theodore (Blonde) and Patti McGuire (Brunette). This pinball was a huge success and more than 18,250 units sold quickly. Forty years later, this machine is still coveted and will call for a high premium on the used market.
