Pinball Promotional Wall Clocks

For many years, starting in the late 1970’s, pinball manufacturers made plastic cutout key chain fobs for each specific game. As time and space allowed these cutouts became more elaborate and varied, depending on the amount of leftover space that was available to use on the sheet of screened playfield plastics used in game production. Over time these items took on a promotional nature, either as more elaborate key chains, display standups, or just more game-specific items. Along the way other promotional techniques were used as well, posters, pamphlets, flyers, decals, cardboard standups, etc., along with advertising in trade magazines and factory representatives visiting local distributors.

Some of the round plastics are too small to make a practical wall clock but these have a 5 inch diameter. Some of the smaller plastics I will frame in a shadow box.
