Home Stretch Horse Racing Game
This game is part of the
series of sports game released by Hasbro in co-ordination with NBC
Sports during the late 1960's and early 70's. These games all have the
same basic format - a slender box containing the game components with a
wrap-around vinyl playing board. Very similar to the 3M Sports games of
the same era. All of the games feature high quality game parts.
The game parts are in
EXCELLENT-NEAR MINT condition. The game includes everything that
originally came with it and it appears the game was rarely played.
Overall I would grade the game parts 8-9 on a 10 scale (see condition
The game box is in EXCELLENT-NEAR MINT condition.
Just some minor air bubbling under the covering. No split corners, no
crushing, no stains. I would grade it 8-9 on a 10 scale (see condition
guide below). The wrap-around vinyl playing board is in EXCELLENT
condition. It has some shelf wear in the form of scuffing and light
scratches on the back. No creases. The snap that holds it shut is
intact. I would grade it 7-8 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).
(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.
