Quiz Busters host, Game Show Forum Administrator, and Bill Cullen expert, Matt Ottinger, was a contestant on the May 17, 1985 episode of the American Syndicated edition. And he had a whole head full of hair, too! Unfortunately, he did not win.
Very few episodes of the 1969-74 version are known to exist, and those that do aren't circulating (minus some syndicated-era clips in a 1982 pitchfilm).
The 1985-86 syndicated run and 1988-89 daytime episodes were aired on USA from 1992-94, but most of it hasn't been seen since originally airing.
It's rumored that while NBC stopped wiping in general in 1980, they (or perhaps Grundy's company) wiped Sale up until September 1988. However, this seems extremely unlikely and unthinkable as the entire run of Scrabble (another Reg Grundy series that aired on NBC) exists.
After years of fans clamoring for GSN to pick up it and Scrabble, the network finally picked up 65 episodes of Sale beginning April 1, 2013. The lease began at #1496 (November 10, 1988) with 1503-1505 (November 21-23), 1516 (December 12), 1521-1530 (December 19-30), 1534 (January 6, 1989), 1552-1553 (February 2-3), and 1556 (February 8) being skipped. During #1573 (March 3, 1989), Jim Perry reminded viewers that they wouldn't be on for the next two weeks (due to special programming hosted by gossip columnist Rona Barrett), and to tune in on March 20 for the start of their final week.
What Could Have Been: Perry being tapped to host Sale almost didn't happen as, on October 23, 1982 (two months prior to the first Sale taping), he hosted a pilot for Bob Stewart called Twisters.
