Table Identificatiopn Help?
« on: May 04, 2020, 09:17:27 PM »
We have had a table since mid 1970's, bought I believe in Denver in 1977. I played it as a kid for years, then it went to my sister who's boys played it for years, then back to me and my kids have now played it for years, They don't play it, but they don't want to see it go. I see it almost as part of the family but at the same time would love to have the room back in my basement since no one ever plays it. So now I have to decide cost benefit analysis of getting rid of vs keeping, but I don't know how much it is worth. I believe mostly original. Red/blue men so tournament soccer style, maybe replaced the score units once. Still has the ash trays. Slanted corners, but one is kind of pulling up a bit. Maybe a Sportcraft but I remember those bing really cheap and this isn't cheap, but no logo anywhere. I used to work at Amusement Emporium back in the day if anyone knows that outfit, so I know a little of the coin op world...But this is a home table.

Any help from the foosball fanatics out there? Identification? Value?

This looks similar to a old Deutscher Meister table. Similar men, bushings, scoring pegs etc. The cabinet looks to be of similar construction. It also kinda has the look of an old quarter million dollar table, but not sure the playing surface had the same dots in front of the three man and the bushings dont look right.  The big difference is that looks like a home model, and most of us have probably only seen the old coin op DM tables. Not sure how to explain the lack of marketing/ID info on the table. Its tuff to price these. If I had to pick between an old Deutscher Meister vs an old Brown marble both priced around 300 I am going with the tornado because thats what I grew up playing on.  However, to a guy who used to play on the old DM tables it might be worth just as much if you can find the buyer.
