    1950's Baseball Card Vending Machine. If you were a young baseball fan in the 1950's, surely you pestered the heck out of your mother for spare change every time you saw one of these machines at the local market, tempting you with the siren's song of baseball cards and gumballs. Now that your juvenile panhandling days are behind you, we offer this rare opportunity to bring such sentimental machinery into your trophy room. Glass windows on either side of the gum compartment feature colorful 1956 Topps cards, though feel free to decorate the windows as you'd like. Key is included to retrieve the nickels you feed it, and a little handiwork will get it attached to the included wrought iron base. Very light external wear is evident, giving the piece the perfect ration of vintage patina.
