I've told people in these forums that I have a 1971 Minnesota Fats table and they're not impressed. Seems these days tables named after Fats are sold mostly in department stores and the most expensive one goes for $1300. The one I play on my dad bought in 1971 at a dealership that sold Fats tables exclusively. He paid $600 which translates to $3640 today. He said he's pretty sure they went out of business, but somebody obviously picked up the name. Does anyone know anything about the company that at one time had dealerships and went out of business?
