Card vending machines
Last week I was in the pantry at my work, and I noticed that they installed two of those old school candy machines. The ones where you put the quarter in, turn the nob and a few pieces fall out. We have two now – one with peanut M&Ms and one with Mike & Ike’s.
It got me thinking. Does anyone remember those card vending machines from the ‘80s? They usually displayed some semi-decent player on the front? Then you put in a quarter or two, pushed the coins into the machine, and a card or two came out? I particularly remember one of these machines at the pizza joint at the mall (Villa Pizza…remember that place, Night Owl?).
I don’t think anyone ever got anything good, but they were still fun. Did anyone else have one of these at a local store?
Enjoy the Super Bowl. Go not New England!
