While the concepts are quite inaccurate, the fact remains that this 1950s Marvel “Pop-Up” countertop arcade game is decidedly addicting! Measuring 21-3/4 x 18-1/2”, the sturdy wooden structure showcases a 10-1/2 x 12” front glass panel with colorful baseball graphics and an interior “playing field” on which a pin pattern of 25 alters the course of a ball bearing. The answer to its “Kicker & Catcher” football contemporary, this one allows five balls for a penny. A lever-controlled “fielder” attempts to “catch” the balls. If they make it past the “fielder,” you’re “out” but if the “fielder” catches the ball, your “Batting Average” (as scored in the upper left corner) goes up. Both, of course, are contradictory to real baseball but hey, we get it! Complete working order with key included!

Note: due to the size/weight of this item, a shipping surcharge will apply.
