Default What a load of crappola

Unless I am completely mis-informed, weren't glass pinball back glasses mass-produced, using some sort of silk-screening-type process ?

Someone on craigslist is advertising a Mystic pinball machine and claims the backglass was "hand painted". Okay, so what - they'd be able to make about 4 pinballs a day doing it that way ?

I emailed them and here's the (deluded) response I got:

"Some laymen don't realize the glass is actually a hand painted type process.

The artist, Kevin O'Connor, was interested in magic at the time (ca. 1980), and used images from my collection of vintage magic stone lithos, to first paint on the blank whitewood. Another artist, Margaret Hudson, posed for the large eye on the backglass."

Next, I'm going to be told that Nigeria REALLY does have legitimate emails.

faralos has a spectacular aura aboutfaralos has a spectacular aura aboutfaralos has a spectacular aura about

makes ya' wonder if HE paid a huge amount for a 'special' one-off hand-painted backglass and he's trying to get his loss back in selling you a 'limited edition' backglass, and yes they WERE mass-produced with silk-screened images!

oh and I got a bridge to sell ya' too slightly used and NO, I can't ship it to ya' sorry...
