    Description

    Vintage 1960's Card Vending Machine With Candy and almost 250 Uncirculated Cards. Take a quick step back in time with this unrestored, 100% original (except for keys) 2-Cent trading card vending machine. The 13" x 13-1/2" x 5-1/2" machine is as found with no signs of restoration or repairs. The coin knob does work and for 2-cents did dispense some candy but turns a little rough. A fairly hefty supply of over 50 year old candy is included but we don't suggest any snacking. In one half was found 1960 Leaf "Foney Ads" and 1961 Topps Baseball cards in the other. Is this the original pairing?? We can only assume. The 44 "Foney Ads" cards grade EX to NM with a few nicer. The 1961 Topps baseball cards number just under 200 cards and offers cards numbered in the 200's and 300's. Some highlights include Koufax (EX), Banks (EX), Colavito, World Series HLs (11), Checklist 4 (3), 260 Drysdale (EX/MT) and Dodgers Southpaws (EX/MT). Color, gloss and surfaces are all uncirculated condition, just a couple have creases and there are mint corners all over the place. Centering places their condition at the EX to NM range and many have a slight stain on the top edge consistent with rubbing against an interior metal column. Note: We did not try to dispense any cards but were told the machine worked properly, we offer no guarantee. Just a great piece that takes you back to a more innocent age and a fantastic conversation piece in your man-cave.
