1959 E agle/Power Play Model 5320 Table Top Hockey Game. Very Good++ Condition - Ready for your Man Cave! Includes metal scoreboard, original box and assembly instructions! This is a 58 year old table hockey game from that classic Canadian toy company Eagle Toys. This is a 1959 Power Play model with gorgeous Original Six graphics and incredible craftsmanship.You'll find 12 pictures of this classic game above this description! Despite some of the wear and tear you'd expect along the slots, the "ice" surface looks great. It glistens beautifully and is extraordinarily clean. The only flaw of any significance is a thin split in the playing surface all the way over on the side near the scoreboard support. Part of it is in the field of play and part of it is out of play behind the rubber band that shoots the puck back out to the center of the game when the puck hits it.
The split is very thin. You can see it in picture #10.There's no trace of it under the game board so it is thin. When the puck hits it, the puck will jump somewhat depending on its velocity. That's it for any significant flaws, beyond that, this 58 year old hockey game is in fantastic condition.
You won't find any rust on the metal parts. There aren't any dents or chips in the wood frame.
The pictures really do a nice job of capturing the beauty of this old girl. The wood frame with metal corners could almost pass for new. I say that because there is very little paint loss anywhere on the frame, whether on the wood or metal. The old school graphics, featuring helmetless players from the Maple Leafs and Canadiens and the logos of each of the Original Six teams is in outstanding condition. The original paint is bright and hasn't faded the least.This game plays almost like new, which is quite a claim for a game nearly 60 years old, but once you get behind the controls you'll see what I mean. The ice sheet is nearly as flat as it was when the game was new and the shiny ice surface leads to wickedly fast action. When the puck hits the rubber band bumper on each side of the game you better not be sleeping or you'll be toast. Underneath the playing surface which you can see in picture #11, I cleaned and then lubed each of the player control gliders. I had to replace a few of the springs as they had been damaged somewhat and affected game play.
This game is very well made. It has metal parts in the critical places, like the goal catcher and the puck eject system.The underneath of the game board is remarkably clean! There's no rust down there except some harmless oxidation on the rods and springs, which means absolutely nothing to game play. I lubed each player control glider and spring. The original plastic nets still look like new. Each net is free of cracks or breaks in the netting and their is very little if any paint loss on the red painted metal parts that hold the net in place.
The red painted goal posts also retain most of their original paint and none of the plastic clips that hold the goal posts to the nets are broken. The metal scoreboard looks great. Once again, there is very little paint loss for a child's game made in 1959! It secures very tightly to the wood frame with two screws which are included.
Back in the day, the plastic miniature Stanley Cup included with the game sat on a round, flat base. That piece was missing when I acquired the game but the Stanley Cup is still there as you can see in the pics. Five of the six cardboard banners that hung from the scoreboard are included. You can see four of them in picture #9. There's also a New York Rangers banner, but it's in pretty fragile condition so I chose not to hang it on the scoreboard for the pics.
The only original banner missing is the Chicago Blackhawks one. The scoreboard and clock spinners are all there as you can see. The Tin Men representing an. And the Toronto Maple Leafs are in very good condition for their age!
These guys are veterans and have some paint loss and bent metal to show for it. The almost always missing goal light towers are both included. For display purposes I added two red goal lights to the top of the towers, but those are just for display and not included with the game.
They are just flashlight bulbs you can find anywhere. The original "red dot" wood puck is included with the game.
And so is the rare, original assembly instructions sheet. It's still in pretty nice shape all things considered. You can see it in picture #12. The game box is included, and again for its age, it's pretty nice.Of course it's been repaired with tape and has some puncture holes and ripped areas, but I'd display it without hesitation.
