Circa 1930 "Home Run" Penny Arcade Game
Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $812.00
This tabletop arcade game rewards the user with a gumball if he can "bat" his ball into the "home run" slot. The insertion of a penny starts the action and causes a gumball to drop into the playing field. It then rolls down the inclined surface where it is "batted" by the user. If he or she is skillful enough, the gumball will be the prize. The game features a "pistol" style trigger that controls the "bat" mechanism and the interior is designed to resemble a playing field. Colorful graphics are displayed upon the glass as well as the underlying wood top. The game is in apparent working order and needs only gum balls for the fun to begin. Very Good condition overall, with minor paint loss to the glass surface and moderate-to-heavy wear to both the interior and exteriors sections from years of former use. Wood, metal and glass construction. 11 x 27 x 15 inches. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$800. SOLD FOR $812.00
