The champion of everything coin-op, Richard Bueschel, lives on in a second edition of his popular work. Feverishly working to fulfill as much of his workload as possible even though he was diagnosed with terminal cancer, dear friend Bueschel’s
output of coin-operated books is a legacy few (any!) of
us will ever muster. Originally published in 1995, the cover’s base color has gone from blue to yellow and retains its same sensational innards. You’ll find the inimitable Bueschel style along with hundreds and hundreds of full color photos. Pinball machines, jukeboxes, slots, vending, arcades, trade stimulators, -ugh!- the pictures and information are endless. This is a VERY important work and the reason is simple. Vintage Coin Machines is a staple on bookseller’s shelves. Its wide distribution brings this wondrous volume into the hands of would-be coin-op enthusiasts. With luck, it will act as the final catalyst and usher in new hobbyists. It’s a class act and a spectacular “calling card” for the coin-op collecting fellowship. Thank you, Richard Bueschel … the hobby is forever in your debt.
