Gumball CharmsSam's Toybox Homepage

I've started selling some of my toys & collectibles.
See my eBay Store for current listings. Thanks, Sam

Back in the day, I was a huge collector of gumball charms, though I knew them as trinkets at the time. They used to be mixed right in with the gumballs in penny machines--no need for pesky capsules. I had something over 200 of them as a kid and used to dump them out of the coffee can I stored them in and count them over and over. Not sure how many I have now; feel free to count them for me and let me know. Here is my massive collection of loose charms and a few dozen gumball machine header cards that hang on the wall of my toy room. Still have a few openings on the bulletin board so I'll likely have to buy more...

Note that Cracker Jack toys/prizes are often lumped in with Gumball Charms but they mostly didn't have loops on them. I do have a handful of Cracker Jack toys elsewhere and some of these might also be from Cracker Jack.
