Ed-u-card was a prolific children's card game manufacturer during the 1950's and 1960's. The company issued numerous sports themed games including a series of baseball games with actual team logos.
The game parts are in VERY GOOD-EXCELLENT condition. The game includes all the parts that originally came with this edition of the game with the exception of one card. The cards are a bit bowed in the centers but are otherwise in good shape. A few have some faint foxing but most are free of stains and none have any writing or significant creasing. The paper field / instructions has some minor tearing at one of the folds. No stains or writing. The game does not appear to have been played with much at all 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. It has some light foxing and rubbing on the lid but still nice. No split corners. No writing. The foxing is more evident on the box bottom. I would grade it a 6-7on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).
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.
