He told us that the machine was only available in the basketball version and it was the forerunner to the other machines similar to it (Baseball and Football) and was constructed completely differently from them. The object was to insert a penny and pull knobs and flip the gumball into the basket in fewest shots. This machine is constructed of sheet metal and a glass front. The original key comes with it and fits both locks. The machine measures 13-3/4" high, 6.5" wide and 8-3/4 length measured at highest, widest and longest length.
The machine is quite rare and is in very good condition for its age (going on 70+ years) with a couple of wear spots (see pictures)..... And is in working condition.. A really special rare gumball machine for the Gumball Vending Machine Collector. Catch it before its too late...............PLEASE WAIT FOR INVOICE PRIOR TO PAYING FOR WINS. THANKS FOR VISITING OUR SITE.
