Rare coin operated machine with an even rarer Mutoscope reel featuring Babe Ruth. This particular reel, circa mid-1920's, not only depicts "The Bambino" sparring with Artie McGowan who trained Jack Dempsey, it also shows Ruth at Yankee Stadium taking some practice swings. Great stuff!! The machine displays its original paint and is in excellent working condition. The header card is vintage with title added to fit the reel. The photograph on the card is actually an original vintage photo and is a treasure by itself. The stand is a 1960's reproduction which mimics the long gone original. Manufactured by the International Mutoscope Reel Co., New York, New York. A centerpiece for any sports game room or serious collector of baseball memorabilia. Stands 73" high.
