Just bought this table and its being installed this Sunday. It is a Brunswick Sport King and must be at least 50 years old. It looks brand new and original. I just can't believe this table is this old. I have played on it and it plays very good. It had new cushions and cloth installed about 5 years ago. I am just amazed how good it looks for its age. Can't wait until Sun to start playing on it.

Made from '50 to '69. https://brunswick.pastperfectonline.com/library/6F1A3BC9-0C85-49E1-BF42-902209132071 VERY nice find.

I like the looks of those.
Especially the castings, wood rails, and how the pockets are practically flush.
What do you give up (if anything?) compared to a GC?

I have had several gold crowns and I think this table will play similar to the GCs. I just like the looks of this oldie.

Is the slate on a Sport King backed?
Also, same question for the Brunswick Windsor.
Thanks!
Yes the SK slate is backed, and doweled, just like the Anniversary and Centennial.

Brunswick built at least two Windsors that I know of, which Windsor are you talking about? The one built in the 70s probably not because that one was 3/4" slate and mostly particle board, it was basically a table for the kids knock around on. The later Windsor built around 2000 has 1 inch framed slate and was one of Brunswick's premier home tables.
