Vintage 1933 Rockola World's Series Baseball Pinball Game Baseball Arcade Game For Sale
For sale is a complete and rare vintage Rockola World's Series pinball game, vintage Baseball arcade game, in complete and original condition, and eighty years old this year. It appears to be serial number 876, this is written in pencil on the access door. The game is all original, with the exception of the backboard with cardboard printed advertisement - this is a reproduction. I acquired this game about twenty years ago and it has been in storage for eighteen of those years, unused. I believe it is in working condition, it was when I played it so long ago. I do recall the metal baseball infield turntable being a bit sticky, but imagine this would be a pretty minor repair if needed. The game measures about 17" X 36" and is 42" high without the backboard, which adds another 7". It appears that it is 100% complete, see the photos. There are perhaps a couple of the little metal pins on the game board missing. The painted ballplayer figures are excellent, with very little paint loss or wear to them. The gray painted cabinet with silver highlights and the four legs are original, never repainted. There is some paint loss to the metal baseball diamond turntable, as well as to the words "2nd Base". There is a splash of white paint on the wooden front left leg, see the photos. This should be removed. This game was considered to be one of the most ingenious non-electric games made, with the revolving turntable and associated mechanics. The simple Art Deco design of the case and legs really make this a beautiful piece. It was awarded a patent (No.1842863) in 1933, as well as a design patent (No. 90927). Much information can be found be googling the patent numbers. The game has the original coin box, as well as lockable front cover, unfortunately I have no key for it. It would be nice to sell this to a local buyer, but I will be happy to crate it up for an additional $100, plus shipping costs. The legs come off so the box would not be that unwieldy. I will remove the glass from the game for shipping, but will pack it separately in the same box. Ask me any questions you might have, I will try to answer to the best of my ability.On Jan-18-13 at 17:40:18 PST, seller added the following information:
Note: In my copy I indicate serial number 867 - it is actually 876 as in the photo.

Note: I neglected to include a photo of the front panel showing the ball shooter knob - it is there, is in perfect working order, I just cropped my photos such that it is not visible. Sorry about that, but it is there, there are no missing parts to this game.

Note: I believe this game will ship for about $125, plus or minus, in continental US by UPS, plus some insurance and crating costs. The freight calculator seems to give some very highs costs apparently, which are likely much more than actual.
