It's cool that you posted this. Seeing several versions of the TS tables brings back some old memories. From a collectible standpoint, the green top Quarter Million tables are the oldest and generally rarest of the 3 colors. The blue top that has the brown top (men with hats) solid color men shows what some people did when the newer color (TS changed color patterns every 2-3 years, and were only around for 7) brown top came out. Instead of buying a new brownie, they just replaced the men and handles (the brown tops had the fat, oversized handles) on the blue top (maybe even some older greenies) to stay current with what was being used at tournaments. Also, one of the rarest combinations to find would be a blue top with a quarter million dollar logo on it as the newer million dollar logo was introduced shortly after the blue top came out and a few blues had the older logo. With the heavy solid rods and many other differences, they play nothing like a Tornado, but if you have room and want to try something that is still fun, and old TS at a good price is a good option.
