Ghosts of The Sopranos

We’ve been shopping this Sopranos pinball machine, and we noticed the translite seemed a little opaque at the black ink. We took it apart and found some of the ink from the translite had outgassed onto the glass, creating this ghosting effect.

Here’s what it looked like once we got it cleaned and back into the machine. Now that’s looking good!

This happens every so often, but we still think it’s cool.

Check it out on this Austin Powers from a little while back:
