Over the years I've been asked about this, today infact. I shared the info I had, wishing I had kept more. I just realized I still had it buried away, so I'll refresh + ad it.

1st made in 1972 model #2200 called Family Cup Hockey, pictured on Munro catalog cover? Described as a "rigid, expanded polystyrene surface that has a cold 3-dimensional effect of real ice".

1973 model #2230 called Tournament Hockey on steel tubular legs, described as "solid, one piece, durable, warp free, crystaline, 3 dimensional playing surface and game top" (which means the frame and playing surface are a one piece mold of expanded styrene).

ebay ad (search "table hockey ads") 1973 called it Family Cup Hockey 48 x 30 inches 32 inches high.

1974 Cdn. Sears called "Prestige Hockey Game with 3-dimensional players. Sticks may be trimmed or curved. About 50'long x 25 wide x 35' high".

1974 JC Penney called "Tournament Hockey on Legs. Styrene-coated surface is durable and warp-resistant... Black tubular legs. 48 x 27 x 32-in high".

1975 Munro catalog called Tournament Hockey model 2330 (same describtion as model 2230) "Tested and proven in actual tournament play. L-48" W-27" H-32"

also 1975 Munro catalog called "Real Ice Hockey model 2340 A Super Value-... Fold away steel legs and end panels assures a sturdy playing surface L-45 W-25 H-32"

The games pictured vary in several ways- bases, players, legs etc. C-;
