Oh, how times have changed. Today's kids enjoy high-tech PlayStation, but long ago there was the simple pleasure of a "PLAY BALL" penny machine. Measuring 14" tall x 12" wide x 12" deep, this relic of a bygone era is fully functional. Its pull-back shooter hits a gumball in an arc toward a spring that then bounces the gumball into designated slots for single, double, triple, HR etc. Condition is about EX overall with expected minor wear, except that the paper field has a tape-repaired tear along the bottom edge, and the decorative decals show slight creasing/peeling. An accompanying key opens the top for refilling gumballs. PLAY BALL!
