While talking with Lisa about plans for Match Game SF at BayCon -- I still haven't heard back from anyone at BayCon about the various technical and organizational issues I raised -- I was prompted to go looking for that long skinny microphone Gene Rayburn uses. Aside from the ability to recreate the original show, the long microphone is practical when I'm having to stick a microphone in people's faces.

Google searches tell me that Gene's microphone is a Sony ECM-51. I see versions of it have gone for $200-$300 on eBay. I have a standing search in place on eBay now in case someone else wants to sell one. I don't know if I'd pay $250 for one, though.
