This keychain was put up for auction by Mike White in September 2013. Here is the item's description takes from the auction, "This sale is for a homemade leather key chain fob that says "ASTROBUGS"! This RARE goody has the original ASTROBUGS logo on it, in COLOR!! Which is perhaps the ONLY place the colored logo exists!! The key ring has gotten a bit rusty over the years, but this is a Genuine Peggy Gladden-made article! I don't know how many others were made like this, certainly NOT MANY!! If you're a collector of Bally-Astrovision-Astrocade items, then this is perhaps a once in a lifetime opportunity to land this!!!"

||Incredible Wizard Ad at Baseball Game|
According to an Astrocade press release from June 1982, this was the world's first video game to be projected on a giant screen (25' x 35') at a baseball game. Other than knowing that this is a White Sox game played in Chicago in the Summer of 1982, I don't know who took this picture.
This picture is from the Digital Press CD released in 1997. Thanks to Digital Press for allowing this picture to appear on Bally Alley.

||"Adventures of Robby Roto, The" 7-11 Slurpee Cup|
"The Adventures of Robby Roto" is an arcade game that Bally Midway released in 1981. The game is based on the Bally Arcade/Astrocade chipset. This game wasn't popular in the arcades and thus it didn't see wide production. Therefore it is unusual that there was a 7-11 convenience store Slurpee Cup tie-in. This game has the distinction of being the first game ROM that is legally distributed for use with the MAME arcade game emulator.
This cup was for sale in November 2011 on the Ebay auction site.

||Smurf Mock Screenshot|
This is a mock screenshot of a possible Bally version of Coleco's Smurf Cartridge created by by Kurt Woloch on February 13, 2006. Included in the zip download
is a BMP of this image and a text file that explains this picture in much more detail.
This is a cleaned-up 3-color screen made by Lance Squire for use as a title screen-- this is not an Astrocade screenshot. It is normal to click on the picture and to get a smallerview of it, as that was the original screensize.
