Notes: The Billboard ad shown here, dated March 1948, indicates "Forced to resume production by popular demand". We don't know when production first started, but Billboard Dec-20-1947 page 100 states Williams was stepping up production on a rolldown game called 'Box Score'. Several Williams documents consistently indicate a date of 1948 for Model 13 and identify it as a rolldown game. We found no Williams ads in Billboard for this game dated prior to Dec-6-1947 page 125. Our previous date of Nov-1947 was based on Billboard ads as early as Nov-22-1947 page 130 which listed "Box Score" as one of several used pin tables for sale by a distributor. This likely was for Daval's 1939 'Box Score'.
