1957 Eagle Toys NHL Pro Hockey Table Top Hockey Game. Museum quality 58 year-old spinner-style table hockey game. A nearly perfect playing surface Complete with Original Puck drop and score pegs! Here is a museum ready, fully restored 1957 Eagle Toys NHL PRO table hockey game. This is as close as it comes to "new" hockey fans.
The original and almost always missing puck dropper and original score pegs are included! These games are usually beat up and marked with circular signs of wear and tear.From the tin men spinning in place around the posts and the metal sticks carving out a path in the playing surface. But you won't find any trace of that circular wear on this game. There are a couple of spots elsewhere that show a trace of wear, but it's so slight you won't be able to spot it in the pictures. The pictures show off this game for all its worth. As you look at those pictures try and keep telling yourself that this game is 60 years old! The playing surface shines like new and glistens like a new coat of morning ice on the neighborhood pond. The metal trim pieces are free from rust and paint loss. The wood frame with metal corners is in near mint condition! The original paint shines like new. The wood sides are free from blemishes and imperfections.
The timeless artwork featuring the old-school logos of the Original Six teams still looks as new as it did when this game first left the store shelf 60 years ago. This game is 60 years old in name only.
It looks new and it plays the same way! The all-metal player control mechanisms are tight and work flawlessly. Rod action is straight and true. Game action is fast and furious. Nothing is broken and nothing needs to be replaced.
The metal control mechanisms have been freshly cleaned and lubed to give you trouble free play. Most importantly, the tin men will not rub up against the playing surface when spinning from their posts. The original white plastic nets with the original red painted metal goal frame are perfect. No breaks in the netting.
No broken holders along the top where the metal frame lies. How's that for being 60 years old? The tin men representing the. Are in excellent plus condition. The players are completely free of rust and paint loss is virtually zero.
The tin lithography is as bright, shiny and colorful as it ever was! You know this game was very lightly used when you observe the original red rubber grips still ready to do their duty on the rod ends. Unbelievable as most of these original grips crumbled away into oblivion decades ago! I will also include a set of red plastic grips that you can use to play the game if you wish to preserve the originals. If you plan on playing this game you'll want to use the extra set of grips anyway because they'll work a lot better than the originals.
You can put a lot of torque on your shots with the newer grips. The original black marble (puck) is included.More from the "I don't believe it" category... The original puck, or should I say, marble dropper is included. It's a beauty too! This one hasn't yellowed over the years. The plastic looks just as white as it did when this game left the Eagle Toy factory in 1957.
If you've gotten this far and you still think you're dreaming, pinch yourself again... The original red and blue score pegs are both included with this game.
You can imagine how rare it is to find both original score pegs, being as small as they are, still present after 60 years. If I would've had this game as a kid, mine would have been. The original box is the only thing that has not survived. I wish I would've gotten it along with the game, but somewhere along the way a previous owner threw it out or maybe a kid ruined it with coloring crayons.
