I've also heard rumors that he broke into CBS on multiple occasions, did that play into his firing?
It's not so much a rumor when he flat out said it on his podcast several times...  Although I think "snuck in" is probably more apt a description.

Ah I see, I didn't know he was the source for that.

Anybody care to elaborate?

Great picture of Steve Allen from when he takes over I've Got a Secret in 1964.

Gee, when I click the link, Matt, Steve Allen looks just like Dick Clark.  The information about the season premiere of IGAS is consistent, though!  Ha! Ha! Ha!

About 5 separate auctions for negatives and prints of Holly Hallstrom and (for an additional fee) copyright transfer. One that especially caught my eye:

Also in the auction are several photos of Lisa Donovan.

Steverino’s hairpiece only went downhill from there.

Rich Fields is starting to sell some other memorabilia.

His TPIR prop showcase book got a hint over $100, so I’m not sure how far the proceeds of the sale are going.

When he starts listing some important items (if he has them), then we’ll likely know that times are very tough. I don’t think he’s going to part with some of his items unless he absolutely has to.
Enjoy lots and lots of backstage TPIR photos and other fun stuff here. And yes, I did park in Syd Vinnedge's parking spot at CBS

I think IKEA sells 20 wedge prize wheels, though what you save in the price you lose in verity. (Also you could just as easily buy the deluxe electronic game.

I could see it being useful for a charity night or a county fair booth but this is just begging to be kicked to Andromeda by the IP holders.

Same person does custom 3x3x3 cubes with Nintendo's IP all over them. Clearly doesn't give two tin ones about copyright. I was curious so I sent a message asking how they produce their labels (are they actually proper dye sub on vinyl, or are they just running labels through a laser printer?) and what blank cubes they are using (for $33 per they could be using decent budget speed cubes, but I bet they aren't) but I don't expect a reply.

I don't know which amuses me more:  That this item already has a $500 bid attached to it, or that Rich Fields needed a cue card to remember to say "COME ON DOWN!"

Quote from an anonymous Goodson-Todman staffer: "Allen Ludden and I got along great. We never had a cross word and I liked him a lot. But I really must tell you in all honesty...at ABC, we had to make a cue card for him that said I'M ALLEN LUDDEN."

The Ikea prize wheel is 24 spaces, better suited for your Wheel of Fortune or Match Game endeavors.
