I think $600  would be the number to start with if condition is as good as pics suggest.  The top is identical to coin-op version.

What's the deal with the glass top? Is it attached or is it just for covering the table when it's not in play? As an aside, $1200 is an ambitious price.

Cherry is probably correct. In my area it would be worth $200-$350. May be worth more or less depending on where you live.

Hello All,

I came across this forum while doing some searching around trying to identify my table. I've had it several years now and sadly need to free up space so I'm looking to sell it on craigslist. Trouble is, I'm not really sure what kind it is. Maybe some variation of T2000? Maybe this is what people are calling "brown marble" but it doesn't look like marble to me, it's a dark wood grain. It's a split cabinet with a lock but no coin op stuff.

I looked through but since there were no pictures it was hard for me to tell. Maybe a cherry?

It had the thicker white side bumpers which I removed several years ago out of frustration with it ruining bank shots and never got around to replacing it with the clear thinner ones.

Here's a link to some images of it.

Any guesses as to the model or how much it's worth? Slightly embarrassing anecdote, I've had the table for years and just now realized there was a prop stick from looking at pictures of other tables  ;D

Much appreciated for any help!

Get it. The ball will "sticks" to the walls if you dont have it. The clear doesnt have the ball hop as much with clear when it hits the wall. Pull the rods out and clean it up good before install

Just got a t 2000. It is in pretty good condition but Missing one of the field trim pieces. It is the original top so the piece that is on it is white. Wanting to put the clear on both sides. Where can I find just the trim without having to buy the upgrade kit? And how much difference does it make? With or without trim?

Thanks for the encouragement.  Just bought some calipers last night (don't revoke my man card for not having any lol) and I have 15mm rods. So are handles going to be a Beach ? Is there a goto parts guru with NOS stuff?  The rods seem to rub against the spring on the bearing- seems like there is alot of play, like the ID of the bearing is larger than the OD of the rod...worn out?  Looks like some stuff can be ordered from RP France , but shipping is Stupid. 

My shopping list: Gerflex, Bearings?, Key, Coin OP Mech and internal arm, Felt (or whatever they were) washers for the inner rod base plate,   4 Handles (and the knowledge how to remove), Misc Screws and Bolts, 1/5 Bourbon

I don't expect any to do the work or research for me - but if you have any quick pointers, sure would appreciate them.

CONGRATS!!  AWESOME FIND!  Looks a little rough, but it looks legit with the right cutouts.  Take your time to make it original and you will have a masterpiece to play on!

Thanks for sharing!!

I can confirm that that table is at least from 1973 - it is the exact table I learned to play on at "Joe Foose" on Jefferson Avenue, Newport News, VA., ... the exact handles, coin slot, keyhole table lock, removable ashtrays... and the sweet DING of the metal goals.

Thanks for sharing your post!!
