If you're new to the field of vintage coin-operated trade stimulator and counter game collecting, or have been looking for copies of the rare original advertising and sales literature, you'll want a copy of TRADE 2. This updated edition of the standard reference book on this machine genre has been completely re-edited and re-written to incorporate the latest information while correcting past errors of judgment and description.

Except it won't stay there. You'll find yourself constantly referring to its information packed pages while taking its price guide insert along to auctions and shops and on buying trips.
