Among the seldom-seen arcade countertop amusements, this 1947 Amusement Enterprises “Pitchem” basketball coin-operated game still “goes to the hoop” after more than half a century. The sturdy original cabinet measures 13-3/4 x 17-1/2” and features a functioning level and dial to facilitate passing and “pitching” (an “alley-oop” pass, if you will). One penny gets the participant five chances. The back panel appears to have been replaced, but the remaining parts and colorful front display are all original, and the key is included.
