APBA BASKETBALL CARDS
1965-66 season

This listing is for a card set for use with the APBA Basketball game.  You need to already own the game in order to use these cards.


APBA BASKETBALL CARD 1965-66

The card set is overall in VERY GOOD - EXCELLENT condition.  This is a complete set of player cards reflecting the 1965-66 season stats.  It is the very first Basketball set ever issued by APBA.  This set also includes the original roster sheet.  The tabs have not been separated from the player cards.  While the cards have never been used the edges of most cards (and a few of the faces) have yellowed with age.  The roster sheet has some edge tears and light handling creases.  I have inventoried and inspected the cards and every card has been accounted for.  I would grade them 6 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).  

APBA BASKETBALL TEAMS 1965-66

The envelopes are in EXCELLENT-NEAR MINT condition.   I would grade them 8-9 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).

Do you know that sinking feeling when you are in the middle of replaying a season or sequence of games only to find that the card for one of the key players is missing?  Well I have thoroughly inventoried this set and compared it to the roster list so you can be assured that you won't get that feeling while playing with this set.   I am not of the opinion that a simple card count will do.  The sets often came with missing or duplicate cards from the factory, and who knows what the original owner may have done with them in the course of playing with them....   Be sure to ask your card seller if they have in fact verified that the card set is complete by comparing it to the original roster list.  

I have also carefully inspected each and every card in order to determine the condition grade I have given to this set.  I do not feel that a cursory flipping through of the cards is adequate to determine the condition of a set - it is too easy to miss something.   Once again - always ask your card seller to verify that they have done a careful inspection of the condition of all the cards in the set before putting their grade on it.

CONDITION GUIDE: 

MINT (10):
 I will only give this grade to brand new, unused items. NEAR MINT (9):  Shows virtually no use.  Seldom if ever played.  Cards will have at worst some dented corners from shuffling around in the box.  Perhaps some very light handling creases to the instructions or other minor flaws with the game parts.  Boxes will have only the slightest hint of shelf wear.   EXCELLENT (7-8): The game has seen some use but it was obviously well taken care of.  Cards may have denting to the corners, perhaps a few may have light stains or other very light handling wear but the vast majority will be close to flawless.  Game parts might have some light handling creases or other signs of careful use.  Board might have just a hint of color loss or dented corners.  Boxes will have light rubbing to the artwork or perhaps some minor dishing or a very light stain.   VERY GOOD (5-6):  The game was not especially well cared for but it still has faired pretty well.  Cards will have dented corners and perhaps some may have rubber band wear to the edges.  A few cards (less than 10%) may have handling creases, yellowing to the edges (a few may be yellowed on the faces), or light stains.  Perhaps a couple may have writing or some dried rubber band residue (this will be noted).  All card results will be fully readable.  Other game parts will show obvious use but nothing will be torn, badly stained or have any serious damage.  Box may have some rubbing, light staining, dishing, 1 or 2 neatly split corners, minor writing and/or a few pieces of tape.  No major structural damage and artwork will still be generally attractive.  GOOD (3-4): Obviously no care was taken with the game but it is still playable as is.  Cards will show moderate to heavy use and many will be yellowed, stained, creased, written on or have rubber band residue.  A couple may be torn and taped back together.  All card results will be fully readable.  Other game parts show considerable use but the game is complete with all parts in usable condition.  Box may have staining, writing, split corners, dishing and/or other structural damage but it will be intact and still usable.   POOR (1-2):  Only suitable to fill a space in your collection.  Cards are heavily worn and some are badly damaged.  Game will be missing parts (these will be noted).  Box will have serious damage and may be missing aprons or badly torn.
