 File — map-case: OS folders, Folder: 11
This series contains parts lists created and maintained by Lion Manufacturing Corp. and its subsidiary, Bally Manufacturing Co. (In 1968, Lion became the Bally Manufacturing Corp.) Parts lists consist of parts numbers and brief descriptions for each product; each game (or other project) was assigned a number by Bally prior to development.

There are multiple instances in this series where the folder received during this acquisition was empty; these original folders have been retained in this collection and are indicated as “[empty folder]” in the folder title. Date range estimates for undated materials are given in brackets in the folder title; alternate titles listed on parts lists are also given in brackets.

This series is arranged chronologically by project number.
