    I found this cool old Chicago Hooligan pool table made in the 50s. I found an ad online in a old advertising for sale for $149 back in a 1957. It still lights up and makes sound but needs a little cleaning on the inside and the felt proble will need replacing. I have never seen this arcade game before and figured it might be rare? I don't know to much about it but thought it was cool and would go great with the collection!!!

      The machine is worth about $100 the way it sits. Dan put a link up there to an online arcade museum. If you scroll down to the second machine on that page that is one I restored. They are worth money if you completely restore them. I sold that one to a coin-op museum in the Netherlands.

      So it's worth restoring? I have no intension of really selling the machine but if you don't mind me asking what did the museum pay for your restored one? And how hard was it to restore

      I don't want to give the exact price I sold it for. I saw one in the shape that yours is in and a guy wanted $1,200 for it. No one bought it. They are pretty worthless unless they are restored. I had a graphic artist redo the artwork. I burned screens and silk screen mine after I covered it. I sanded all the wood and clear coated it. I painted everything and replaced all the screws and washers with new ones. I touched up the back glass (plexi in this case). I got lucky with the one I sold. A guy was looking for one for his museum. I am restoring one right now and I will start out listing it for $4,995. I wont get that much for it but that is where I started the last one. If you totally restore the machine you should be able to get $2,000+ for it. I probably spent in the $500-$700 range to do mine. And a boat load of time. The first one I got for free. The second one I bought for $100. That is what they are worth if they are not restored completely.
