imo the 10 best;

55 speigel page 226 poosh m up gm, like Cdn Cresta this US made gm
is under the Aristospel patent. The 1st modern slot US gm and the 1st
known slot gm ad in color.

62 Sears page 344 shows a Gotham football gm with Jim's gm ends
posted yrs ago. 345 includes sadly the only Eagle ad of 1 of the most
common models-cups were actually placed on dish on top of overhead.
Gotham gm- flags 1st came with 5 NHL city names + 1 with Gotham name, then with Montreal, if I recall correctly, replacing Gotham flag.
The mini gm is an obscure De Luxe Game Corp. 356 N. Penna Ave.,
Wilkes-Barre, PA. (for LM) with previously released Munro players.

64 Sears known as the 64 crowd in crowd gm- my favorite gm for behind
the net passing (not do to dmen restricted slots but, feel etc.) NYs JP
did/does? use these in league play- Nice. (page 125).

66 Sears page 563 classic see through puck dropper. The Royal Cdns.
were quite drab for the most part, of note, this gm was the 1st individual
Munro model to sell over 100,000 units (they sold many models ea. yr.)

70 JC Penny page 341 the classic Coleco overhead. Steve Gs the
Coleco expert imo, particularily on these overhead models.

72 Spiegel page 374 straight slot Coleco with my favorite NHL logo
outer side ever.

73 Eatons page 429 s slot Coleco. Od posed action shot. Tuff control
position at c, how exciting, strange cup placement too.

79 Sears "c" page 634 mid size Coleco- last 3 slot gms also Irwin.

87 Sears page 360 Stiga/Coleco full page. Classic 83 Stiga electronics
Nice ad.

88 Sears page 428 Bockplast of Finland, both unique slot gms shown.
(86 Sears page 478 better photo of 1 of these models).

Other ads include;
66 JC Penneys p 349
68 Sears p 469
69 Sears p 473
70 Sears p 489
71 Sears p 103
72 Sears p 374
85 Sears p 585

Sears shown are US, Cdn Sears ads from the same yrs were usually much nicer and as I can see, in the later yrs, many US catalogs showed
no TH at all, whereas this was not the case in Canada. US ads showed
games not always seen in Cdn ads and "nicer" is sometimes subjective.

A few of us have a complete run of Eatons and Cdn Sears ads.
When yrs are appointed to gms they usually reflect these ads.
Misc catalog ads and gm co.s catalogs show many more variations and
so much is speculative re trivial details by most writers/sellers.
Some catalogs were only available in the west, some only in the east,
some US some Can. some Euro. A full run of Cdn Tire, M. Wards, Acme,
Spiegel and program ads would be nice but, would still leave out Alot.

Hope this helps and passes the time as results x3 come in.

I looked up that one in the 1966 Sears catalogue ... made me sick ($11.99) Ha ha ... try getting one now in good condition, probably 2-300 bucks easy.
