(Disneyland, 1967) This custom made vending machine was created for the newly opened Pirate Arcade in New Orleans Square in 1967. Pre-dating the opening of Pirates of the Caribbean, this arcade featured pirate-themed games and merchandise which acted as a teaser for the forthcoming attraction. This special machine dispensed the famed Marc Davis Pirate Postcards which consisted of imagery from his concept art for the attraction. Offered in two sets of six for $.25 each, the machine marquee shows of the cards. Constructed by Imagineer Sam McKim the lower inside door contains notes and dates in his hand-writing concerning construction and operation. This one-of-a-kind machine has been featured in Disneyland historical books and magazines such as “The Nickel Tour”and E-Ticket magazine . In very good condition. Some “rope” edging has been restored. Operation not tested. Special shipping arrangements will apply.
