Default Help on identifying a vintage baseball card vending machine

Hi, I'm new to the forum and have never posted before. Glad to be here. I was hoping I could get some help on identifying a vintage baseball card vending machine I picked up recently, specifically age and perhaps value. If someone could shed some light, that would be great!

How many cards are dispensed for 50 cents? I don't remember seeing that topps poster before. I have bought and sold three Topps vending machines but they were all from the 1960's. Can you post a pic with it open to see how the vending boxes loaded in.

Thanks for the reply. Here's the photo. Not sure how many cards are dispensed, I actually haven't played with it too much yet until I knew more about it

Very nice! It looks early '80s to me.

On a side note, was the pedicure done purposefully to match the red of the machine? Nice touch.

I agree. The graphics scream "80s"

Graphic screens 80's but most card vending machines were made earlier and like in this case modified and refurbished to take advantage of the boom in the late 80's. Looks like a mid sixties machine. Is there any manufacture stamp on the machine. Maybe under or inside?

I remember my local card shop having something similar as a kid in the late 80s early 90s. Where it says pull there is a slot where the cards would come out. The one I remember, the card would come out in a white cardboard folder.
