HERRIN, Ill. - To some, blinking lights, arcade sounds, and a tiny metal ball bring back the good-old days.  Their game is pinball.
"I can remember when I was a newspaper boy and I spent many dimes and quarters on these games," said Heartland Pinball and Arcade Super Show organizer Ken Hall.
More than 90 pinball machines from the past and present were on display and ready for play at the Herrin Civic Center.
"This is a great show, it takes in many different eras from the late 50's thru the 90's and even 2007," said pinball enthusiast Bob Whitley of St. Peters, Missouri.
