Description

This vintage, metal coin-operated machine once dispensed cards from the 1957 Topps Baseball Set to children looking to get a piece of gum; now it is an outstanding collectible itself. Its blazing red color and appearance are not affected by the minor scrapes and paint chips along the outermost edges of this machine. The fabulous period decals still are intact and attached to the center glass and displays the "1 cent" price. There are several scrapes along the lower face of the machine and stamped next to its center steel knob on front is, “Premiere Gum and Card Vendor, Mfg by Oak Mfg Co Inc California”. Includes a working key, the two 1957 Topps cards but the gum is not included. Overall measurements are 13”x 13”x 5 1/2”. The vending mechanism is in working order while the overall presentation of the piece is solid EX condition.
