Card Sharks Money Cards records
« on: June 13, 2019, 09:06:43 PM »
For the game show stats fans in the house, this is for you.

Watching that guy win close to $200K on McHale's Card Sharks this week made me think about Money Cards of the past & this question: What was the most money every won in the Money Cards on Rafferty and Bullard's versions of the show? I know on Perry's version the $28,800 max was won only once and I believe a contestant named Faith won $29K was the record on Eubanks' version. In fact, Faith was the all time Money Cards record holder until this week. I have no recollection of Rafferty records, but I don't recall anyone on Bullard's version winning over 27K. Of course, I'm going by memory here.

Bullardís 27k was about the highest won - that I can agree with.
Rafferty has several > 10k wins, but I donít think a 20k win was achieved.

\the episodes guides were helpful back in the day.

I'm almost positive there was at least one 20K win on the 86 syndie series and it came when Brian won the car game multiple times. I wanna say his first day he hit 21K on the cards and then won the car.
Still crazy after all these years...but that's okay.

A have on tape over 1/4 of the Bill Rafferty version mostly from when GSN reran it in 2005. Pulling up my spreadsheet, there was a $21,200 win on May 18, 1987, and a $23,500 win on December 15, 1986.
