I had hopes for Fireball but their US efforts seem to have fizzled out. Given that they don't have tournaments in the US there is probably very little demand for the table unless you really like how it plays. As such, if I were interested in buying one, I would look at other non-Tornado coin operated tables for comps. Off the top of my head, I would be offering no more than $500 and probably quite a bit less. Seller is not in any position to get good $$ because the market for buyers is almost non-existent.

As a US buyer for a Fireball Coin op in Great condition... i'd pay up to $800.

If it needs new men/new bearings/bumpers... subtract the cost of those parts (https://shop.foosball.com/fireball.html) and i'd pay that much.   Aside form limited availability of this brand... you have a limited availability of PUBLICLY AVAILABLE coin ops of any brand nowadays  :'(

Make sure surface is flat/true... and sidewalls are straight and solid.  (Fireball tables were well built overall).

If you plan on vending that table for coin... it'll pay off that $800 easily before it's end of life!    Cheers!   Jim
