Table Hockey Games

 Vintage table hockey games are another collectible that seems to be sought after more often all the time. People that have one in their possession quite often hear about the increasing value and now it is more common to see them up for sale on different classified sites. I have seen a few of them on Kijiji. I spent hours playing these games when i was a kid.

The Munro table hockey game above belonged to my father which he acquired in the 1950s

This Eagle table hockey game is another one that i have and i believe it is from the 1960s era.

1972 Summit Series

 The 1972 summit series was one of the greatest sporting events in sports history in my opinion. I was fortunate enough to be able to see it. I do remember classes at school closing down and everyone going to the gym to crowd around a tv and watch the game. As Phil Esposito stated "it was like war" the cold war going on and all. Heritage Hockey has a really nice dvd set that they put out. 8 discs total 26 hours long.They sell it for $39.99 and it's well worth the money.

Another sporting event that went down in history and is talked about in great length even to this day. The Russians clearly the favourite to win, and the U.S. the underdog pulled off an amazing feat defeating the Soviets.
