Showbiz Pizza Tokens

Updated 12/26/05

Showbiz Pizza is closely affiliated with Chuck E. Cheese (see history) so I felt it was appropriate to include a listing of their tokens. Showbiz tokens are not as varied as CEC tokens, as Showbiz tokens are not dated, none have cities, and there have been few design changes. However, there are a number of different sizes and metals that have been used, so it can be an interesting series to collect. This list may be incomplete, and I would welcome reports of any Showbiz tokens not included. Note: because the tokens are not dated, these are listed by size. The oldest tokens seem to be the 25 mm size with "Pizza ShowBiz" incuse. Next oldest are the other "25C Play Value" tokens. Hard to tell on the rest.
