Description

    Circa 1960 Trading Card & Bubble Gum Vending Machine. One of the great laments of the baseball card collecting hobby is the death of the bubble gum tradition, those sugary treats that added that extra fun to the opening of wax packs. A variation on that extinct theme was the vending machine that let kids satisfy their sugar cravings and love of saving trading cards for the price of two cents. Offered is a circa 1960 "Premier" Trading Card and Ball Gum 2-Cent vending machine. The machine has been restored to a youthful near-mint+ appearance. The blazing fire engine red beauty is fully operational and would make a great variation to the traditional piggy bank for the young hobbyist or just young at heart hobbyist. Dimensions are approx. 6x13x13". A great reminder of a bygone era.
