This page has a look at the double showcase winners whose difference had to be less than $100 to win both showcases.

Here is a look at the Double Showcase Winners from The Price is Right, albeit incomplete (such as Season 2). The rule was not present until some point between March 8, 1974 and April 18, 1974. Some of the pictures are available for a look at who the Double Showcase winning contestant looks like and what they looked like on the date it aired.

But beware, some of the displayed dates are false; check the production number and then find out the correct airdate it was supposed to happen on.

Seasons prior to Season 24 do not have complete data. All info found here has been taken from the DSW Database Website (http://dswdatabase.proboards.com). It is not known if there were any Double Showcase Winners from Seasons 4, 7, 16, 17 and 21.
