PAPA Tokens

PAPA unveils a new token for each tournament. Until now, the collection has never been presented online in its entirety for collectors to see. Many of the tokens can be found in abundance within every roll, but other designs are extremely rare with only a few hundred ever released. Michael Budai and Brian Holderman are the two artists primarily responsible for the designs, and both have new tokens waiting to be released at PAPA 15.

Brian has most recently drawn Frankenstein, the Woman’s face, and the PAPA 15 Howling Wolf, while Budai has been busy creating a token honoring our magician technician Steve Eckert. The Eckert token shows a pirate ship between two soldering irons, representing Steve’s two favorite hobbies of boating and pinball. To see the names of each token, hold your cursor over the image below.

The rarest tokens are the PAPA Flood Token, showing a grim reaper sailing a pinball machine and representing the PAPA flood of 2004 that wiped out hundreds of pinball machines, the Clown Face which was a low production number from early on, and the Steve Eckert token which will be released at PAPA 15. A few of every token are added into circulation at each tournament, though in the cases of the most rare tokens only a small handful may be added into the overall collection of nearly 100,000.

The PAPA 15 token will be included in the first 1500 rolls of tokens sold. To pre-register for PAPA 15, click here.

    Any chance of posting some of the stories/details behind these designs eventually? That would be cool!

    The grim reaper is my favorite. I believe it represents the flood that devastated the PAPA facility.
