Considered by most as the most fabulous coin operated basketball theme game ever made, the Chicago Coin "Basketball Champ" machine made it's debut following World War II. With professional basketball just starting to take hold, this nickel arcade machine offered much more fun than most of the many pinball machines. For his 5 cents the player received 15 shots at the basket, with scoring rated from rookie to champ. The shooter rotates to get the ball, then turns toward the basket. The opposing player keeps moving continuously to block the shot. Colorful 1940's basketball images cover the strong oak cabinet. Game is totally complete, right down to a pair of front mounted ash trays. Game measures 50" by 28" by 78". One of the very rare, surviving examples of a truly memorable classic arcade game!
Due to the large size and heavy weight of this lot, the cost of shipping may be substantial.
