Gottlieb Playball backglass restoration

A guy walked into the shop with this 1970 Gottlieb Playball backglass. At first look it didn’t seem too bad, but after viewing the back side of the glass I completely understood why he was interested in getting the glass restored. There was definitely damage that could be seen from the front (cracking like in the ball stadium area and words “Playball”), but the back was nasty. Someone had tried to fix the ink delamination, and in the process probably made things a lot worse. So we took on this job to fix the glass for this gentlemen. Here’s the before and after pictures.
