I bought this old baseball gumball machine from a gentlemen who had several vending machines many of which were never put into service. This appears to be from the 1950's era. The machine dispenses a gum ball with the insertion of a penny. The gum ball drops into a slot and is then propelled by a plunger onto the "playing field, " where it drops into one of seven chutes, labeled, respectively, "Base on Balls, " "1 Base Hit, " "Fly Out, " "Home Run, " "Strike Out, " "2 Base Hit, " and 3 Base Hit.
" Depending upon where the gum ball lands, players may "bet against each other or be paid off in trade by the house. Manufactured by the Ekholm Mfg Co. The game (12L x 13D x 14.25H inches) is in working order and comes complete with its top key; t.
He key pulls out a core lock so the machine can be disassembled and the gumballs reloaded and the pennies removed. The machine is HEAVY cast iron and steel - weighs 31 pounds. Form the golden era of baseball. Will be carefully packed and heavily bubble wrapped.
