Cadaco produced it's FOTO-ELECTRIC games from the 40's through the early 70's. Football was by the far the most popular but they also relaeased a Baseball game. In the late 70's it was re-released without the electric parts under the name "Foto-Football".
The game parts are in VERY GOOD-EXCELLENT condition. The game is basically complete. The only thing missing is the original 10 yard marker. It includes 12 Offensive Plays, 6 Defensive Plays, a lighted game board, field with play results table (10 yard marker missing), dice and cup, a scorepad and the instructions booklet. The dials for the downs and plays have rust on the bases and are difficult to move. It would be best to just keep track by hand rather than force these as they will likely break off. A couple of the play charts have fingerprint stains or light folds but on the whole they are in very nice shape as is the rest of the paperwork. Overall I would grade the game parts 6-7 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).
The game box is in VERY GOOD-EXCELLENT condition. The box is very clean. Nice bright colors on the litho, no nasty stains or writing,. Just a couple small edge tears. I would grade it a 6-7 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).
All in all a very nice example of a very early edition of this classic Cadaco game. It's very rare to see one of these early ones in such nice shape. It would make a great gift for a sports fan this holiday season.
MINT (10): I will only give this grade to brand new, unused items. NEAR MINT (9): Shows virtually no use. Seldom if ever played. 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. 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. 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. 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. Game will be missing parts (these will be noted). Box will have serious damage and may be missing aprons or badly torn.
