CUSTOM BACKGLASS PROJECT
Commissioned by Eli Curtz

Original Backglass Artwork by JIM WOODRING
 

Over all the years we have been making pinball parts, we have been bombarded by personal project ideas from hundreds of pinheads
who have their own unique dream.  Something off the radar.  Something personal to them.  A favorite game that isn't mainstream.
Once we explain the logistics of reproduction...and "we can't make just one" becomes clear...the desire to hire CPR fizzles for most.
Then there is the small subset of folks who ask secondary questions. Those who go one step further. They ask about commissioning
a project, what is involved, what we need, minimum run length commitment, and costs.  The answers to those questions further
fizzles the interest of pretty much the remainder of folks.  Not that we want to fizzle anybody!  :)  The realities of hiring CPR for a
complete run of your project, prepared and paid for entirely by yourself, is beyond the reach for most individual pinheads...

Then there are the folks that go all the way.  To date, a grand total of TWO people have commissioned CPR for a custom project.

First there was Clay Harrell, and his commissioned run of MERMAID (1951) reproduction woodrail playfields back in 2006.

Now we have Eli Curtz, who after a year of his prep work, saw his way through to production of this November 2010 backglass project.
