Ballyhoo

Bally's first game, the 1932 Ballyhoo

Ballyhoo Raymond Maloney (a Gottlieb Distributor) was frustrated at not being able to get enough Baffle Balls (which were priced at 17.50, and sold over 50,000 units), so he formed his own company. The new Pinball Company was Lyon Manufacturing, and it manufactured the Maloney design, BALLYHOO. After the success of Ballyhoo (selling over 75,000 units), Maloney re-named his company Bally Manufacturing.
