Marketing Slogans:
Notes: The manufacturer advertised this ‘Baby’ version at 16 x 30 inches. According to the Encyclopedia of Pinball Vol 2, Pamco was not interested in manufacturing any other size than the 60-inch model, so Harry Williams decided to produce this 30-inch version at his own firm, Automatic Amusements Company. It was marketed under the Pamco name. Later, Pamco would produce the 36-inch ‘Master’ version. In an interview with pinball historian Russ Jensen on April 7, 1982, Harry Williams stated that a Los Angeles department store at the time wanted a “home model” to sell, and so they produced this ‘Baby’ version in a non-coin-op model as well, for home use. For additional information, see PAMCO’s 1933 ‘Contact (Senior)’.
