Here's another Blast From the Past! This is a 5 6 year old table hockey game from that classic Canadian toy company Eagle Toys. This is a 19 61 Power Play model with gorgeous Original Six graphics and incredible craftsmanship. You'll find 12 pictures of this classic game above this description! Wear and tear on this beauty is minimal, especially when someone reminds you this game is 56 years old.
I'd say this game would turn some heads in your game room or man cave. What kind of vintage hockey game displays like a gem?
A game with an ice sheet like this one! First things first, when I acquired this game it had the typical sag in the slot areas that almost all these games have today. I took a "Before" pic and an "After" pic to show you how nice the slot areas look today after I flattened them out.
Make sure you take a good look at picture #7 which gives you an even better feel for how flat this game is today. Did you notice yet how nicely the playing surface looks? You'd swear a Zamboni just put down a fresh layer of ice. The wood frame with metal corners is still a head turner, 56 years after it left the factory. I say that because there is very little paint loss anywhere on the frame, whether on the wood or metal.And then there are the graphics. The white areas have not yellowed. 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 flat ice sheet and its wickedly slick surface will turn your game of table hockey into a track meet. The tin players fly back and forth in their slots without binding up against the playing surface - the way they're supposed to. The way they did when the game was new!
It almost goes without saying but this game is very well made. Metal supports for the nets. And a super strong wood fiber frame that looks like it could go another 56 years. Each of the player control glider mechanisms are in excellent working order.
Any damaged springs were replaced with genuine Eagle replacement springs. The original rod grips crumbed away years ago and so I replaced them with Eagle grips from other games. 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 very nice. Once again, there is very little paint loss for a child's game made in 1959!It secures very nicely to the wood frame. I do not have the cardboard team banners that hang from the scoreboard. The original goal light holders are also missing.
You'll also need two flash light bulbs and two "D" size batteries if you want to use the goal lights. 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 original wood red dot puck seen in the pics comes with the game. The game box (not pictured) is included. It's seen better days but it's still hanging around which is more you can say for most of the original boxes from these games. I pack these vintage games carefully. Your cost is based on the distance between my zip code, 53719, and yours!
