One Man's Trash Is This Man's Treasure

You never know what you might find sitting out to be picked up by the garbage truck. The other day, my wife spotted something across the street as we were leaving the house. The next morning, it was still there. That was a sign that I needed to go investigate it. It came to find a new home in my house. What is it, you may ask?

It is a vintage Bobby Hull tabletop hockey game.

I'm assuming that it is from 1968/69 since there is a placard from the Oakland Seals. In 1970 they were renamed the California Golden Seals. None of the players are wearing helmets, including the goalies. The last maskless goalie was Andy Brown who retired in 1974.
