Really nice looking older table top model gumball & trading card vending machine, made by the Oak Mfg. It does come with a key and the handle turns when using dimes and the gumball gears turn/swivel on the inside when turning the handle. We don't have any gumballs though, but we have been able to figure out how to load the cards properly and get them to dispense and both sides do so...... Thanks everyone for your help!!!!
12 1/2 across, probably weighs about 10 lbs. Does show some signs of wear, mostly around the bottom and a couple places on the back, tried to take plenty of pics showing it etc. One side of the machine has Star Wars trading cards from 1977 and the other side has Empire Strikes Back from 1980. The Empire Strikes Back ones are by Topps and there is a checklist, so we could tell there wasn't a complete set of trading cards. There are a few multiples of some and a special space paintings group as well as a few stickers.
The Star Wars ones also have a few multiples and the backs of the red, blue, orange and yellow cards make a picture puzzle. No one color set is complete, there are a few movie reel type ones and some stickers also. The cards are in very good condition and there are over 550 of them. I've added pics of the inside of the machine, as well as pics of both sides dispensing the cards.
