|The picture shows a view of this Old Gum Ball Machine Prize Advertising Header Card with Prizes. The card is not dated but it is believed to be from the late 1950s or 1960s. This is one of the cards that goes inside a gumball machine to entice children to spend their (or more likely their parents) spare change. This one is from an old 5 cent machine. The card has the original shrink wrap over the prizes and the card. The prizes could be removed if desired. It is complete as it was made.|
The card holds (20) various toy prizes including a rubber rat and alligator, (12) rubber insects, and (6) metal toy rings with plastic jewels or stones. To judge the sizes the header card measures about 5-1/2'' x 6-7/8''. The prizes appear to be in mint condition. The card itself has some creasing, wear, and discoloration as pictured.
