Beginning in September 1984, host Alex Trebek walked through the panels that make up this iconic wall for more than 1,300 tapings of the quiz show that has captured the attention of generations of fans. Created in 1964 by Merv Griffin, JEOPARDY! flipped the traditional game show format by offering contestants the answers and requiring them to ask the questions. Each of these nine wall panels, acquired from Trebek and executive producer Harry Friedman, measures 114 inches tall and more than 35 inches wide. Lined up together, the massive display stretches 27 feet from one end to the other. The panels were retired in 2002 in favor of a newly designed set.
