FONAS TRI-1 BASEBALL
Handheld Electronic Game
In Original Box
Fonas is one of the more
obscure companies that
manufactured handheld electronic games. This is a nice game for it's
time. Too bad they didn't have better success with it.
game can also be found sold as Fonas 2 Player Baseball, Sears 2 Player
Baseball and Talbot 2 Player Baseball.
Game console is in working
order. All buttons, switches and sounds work as they should. There is a
bit of looseness in the battery terminal but the game does function as
it should. Screen is in good shape, no chips or scratches in the paint,
only a few minor surface scuffs. The same is true of the button area.
There is a bit of yellowing to the buttons from normal use.
Back of the
console is in better than average condition with the sticker intact and
clean with no peeling. Battery cover is missing, battery compartment is
clean and terminals are not corroded.
Box is in about average
condition overall but the
flaps are missing at the top. No instruction sheet included but does
include the original styro packing clamshell.
(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 scuffing to the back of the
console. Packing materials, instructions and other paperwork
will show almost no signs of handling. 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.
Console will have more noticable scuffing, maybe
light wear visible on the screen or in the button area.
Paperwork may have some light handling creases.
Packing materials may have a light stain or small chips but will be
intact and free cracking. Boxes will have light
rubbing to the artwork,
some minor creasing, small tears on the flaps or a small stain.
VERY GOOD (5-6):
The game was not especially well cared for but it still has
faired pretty well. Some obvious scuffing from play but all
labels intact and readable. Perhaps a very minor chip on the
edge. Paperwork will have some handling creases and may be
lightly stained or have some writing. Original packing
materials may be damaged but will be intact. Box will have
rubbing, light staining, creasing, small tears, minor
writing and/or a few pieces of tape. Might have a
missing flap. 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. Console will show heavy use but will not be seriously
damaged in any way. May have a few burnt out LED but is
still playable as is. Paperwork will have heavy handling wear
and may be torn and taped back together. Box

structural damage but it will be intact and still
Only suitable to fill a space in your collection.
