chevy59
(191 items)

circa 1931, one of the classic countertop baseball games. Play until you get three outs. Flip balls to get base hit, doubles, triples or home runs. Keep track with dials on top and by pulling out little men when a player is on one of the bases. With the popularity of baseball in the 1920's along with Babe Ruth himself, these games were very popular in drug stores and gas stations. Works perfectly, my 5 year old daughter loves to play it. Hope you enjoy pics!

    man chevy, how many moving parts you think are in this? i didnt even have a clue what this was from the "title" picture. but this is cool!!!
  41. chevy59 chevy59, 2 years ago
    Thanks for the love mikie, I would hate to find out how many moving parts it does have if something did break.
  42. Dan121156 Dan121156, 2 years ago
    That is really neat.. I have always looking for a smaller arcade game like those..
  43. chevy59 chevy59, 2 years ago
    Thanks Dan, these are getting harder to find, I went to an auction the other day to try an buy a really rare 1 cent stimulator, thinking I was going to steal this thing, nope it brought almost a thousand dollars, there were phone bidders, internet bidders, and 3 or 4 people at the auction that also wanted it. You cant hardly buy anything cheap anymore. Good luck in your search!
