This is considered one of the most interesting coin-operated baseball games from the 1930s. Entitled "Miniature Baseball World Champion," this all-original game accepted pennies to play a fun game that flipped steel balls in a spiral to produce either a hit or an out. In fact, one penny got the user three at-bats (“1¢ for Inning at Bat''). The game measures 10.25” wide by 16.5" high by 8.5 deep. Scoring dials are found at the top to keep track of innings completed and runs scored. Expected wear is exhibited throughout; the game is functional but play is a bit slow.  Missing its original key, though the mechanism is unlocked so the inside can be accessed.
