Vintage Foosball Tables For Sale

Foosball is an extremely old table game, created during the early twentieth century, so the tables have been manufactured for nearly 100 years. The earlier tables had designs from the era they were made in and were typically built by hand, with solid wood frames. They were stylish, aesthetically pleasing and expensive for the period. Needless to say, there are no vintage foosball tables for sale in conventional places, such as online websites like Amazon or high street stores. If you want one of these tables, the best places to look are online auction websites like eBay (you can request alerts, so you receive emails whenever one is advertised), local auction houses, and Internet directories such as Craigslist.
