Pinball Baseball Game
Japan Mini Bagatelle
There were a huge number of
these games produced in Japan during the years after WWII all using
variations on a few different sets of artwork and titles. Cheaply made,
and sold in Dime stores in the USA, not surprisingly most ended up in
landfills. They are about the size of a music cassette.
The game is in
EXCELLENT-NEAR MINT condition. Just a few minor scratches to the paint
and the gold-plating at the bottom. Works perfectly. Overall I would
grade the game 8-9 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).
The game packaging is in
POOR-GOOD condition. As you can see there are a few holes in the bag
and the cardboard has some missing pieces. You almost never find these
with the bags. I would grade it a 2-3 on a 10 scale (see condition
Price includes shipping
(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
or other minor flaws with the game parts. Boxes will have
the slightest hint of shelf wear. EXCELLENT (7-8):
The game has seen some use but it was obviously well taken care of.
some light handling creases or other signs of
careful use. Board might have just a hint of color loss or
corners. Boxes will have light rubbing to the artwork or
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
rubbing, light staining, dishing, 1 or 2 neatly split corners,
minor writing and/or a few pieces of tape. No major
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
condition. Box may have staining, writing, split
dishing and/or other structural damage but it will be intact and still
Only suitable to fill a space in your collection.
Game will be missing
parts (these will be noted). Box will have serious damage and
be missing aprons or badly torn.
