Description:

Two Coin-operated "Sports" Penny Arcade Games, early to mid-20th century, the Miniature Baseball World Champion game with thumb lever releasing arm, spiral-shaped "field," and aperture holes indicating scoring, a Jennings and Co. decal on side of cabinet; and the Kicker and Catcher, manufactured by The Baker Novelty Co., with dual knobs to control the players, ht. 16 1/2 to 17 1/2 in.
Estimate $300-500

Baseball game in good working order, appears to have original paint and decals on sides of case, lacking key. The football is lacking its rear panel, the two control knobs are off but present (possibly not original). Not working, coin slide stuck.
