Here's a vintage table hockey game that first sat under a Christmas Tree 51 years ago! Now, it has a chance to sit under your Christmas tree for that special hockey fan. This is a 1957 NHL Pro model from the old Canadian toy company, Eagle Toys. It's in excellent overall condition. This is a fast playing spinner style hockey game played with a black marble puck. The players spin in place around a metal post. 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 more than a couple traces of that on this game. The pictures show just how beautiful this game really is. 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. The wood frame with metal corners is in excellent condition! The original paint shines like new. The wood sides are free from major blemishes or imperfections. The gorgeous artwork featuring the old-school logos of the Original Six teams has never looked better.
This game is 58 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.

Those dark spots you see in picture #12 underneath the playing surface are from the WD-40 lube I gave each of the control mechanisms. Most importantly, the tin men will not rub up against the playing surface when spinning from their posts.
I could not find the original white plastic nets for this game, so I subbed in the metal and fabric goals that the Eagle Toy Company used on a number of their other models from the same time period! These nets are in amazing condition for their age. The fabric has held up well. You'll enjoy playing with these nets as they will flip over and do a 360 on hard scoring shots.
The tin men representing the. Are in very good condition. The players are completely free of rust and paint loss is minimal. The tin lithography is as bright, shiny and colorful as it ever was! The original red rubber grips crumbled into pieces years ago.I've replaced them with red plastic grips that actually work better than the originals. You can put a lot of torque on your shots with these grips. The original black marble (puck) is included. I do not have the original wood pegs that were used to keep score but I will include two new pegs that you can use as replacements. The original box is long gone. Your new vintage table hockey game will be carefully packaged in a.
