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.
You might very well think that, of course I couldn't possibly commentÖ

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.

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.
