This is a soccer game I've picked up through Violets' Auction Services in Martinsburg, PA. I cannot find any information on it, so if anyone has even the slightest clue, please let me know! One sticker says 'Brevetatto' near the one goal, and the one at the other goal says 'Ventura', has a black spider, then says 'Made in Italy'. It has four brown metal braces hanging from the bottom, which makes me believe it might have been mounted on something at one time (perhaps just to stabilize it during any rough play). I'd be curious to know any history about it or even a 'guesstimate' on its worth, but honestly, at $15 dollars & the fun I've gotten from it (considering its in great working order), I don't care if its only worth a nickel =)

    We had this game as kids and I beleive my grandfather bought it from Hammacher Schlemmer. I have been trying to find this game forever. It was the greatest game. If you have anymore info on who made it or where it came from let me know , Thanks Billy

    Well, one year later and still looking for information about this. I was unable to confirm if it was from Hammacher Schlemmer or not, or any other real information for that matter. However immediately after posting this I noticed it had legs that fold down to support it. Duh.

    I nearly bought a game almost identical to this in 1961 at FAO Schwarz in New York City. It stood on four legs and was priced at $50. I didn't buy it and have searched (on and off) for one ever since.
