Probably one of the last large game company issued bagatelle-style games Mattel Big Bat Pinball was a surprise hit in the 70's.   It is really a combination of a bagatelle and a Japanese pachinko machine.

Mattel BIG BAT Baseball Bagatelle Game 1974

The game is in EXCELLENT condition.  It has some light scuffing to the clear plastic part from normal game play but no cracks or chips.  The game has been thoroughly tested and works perfectly.  It has all it's balls and it includes the original instructions sheet (not pictured).  The game originally came with a little plastic pin that was inserted to trap the balls during transport.  This has long since been lost but I will insert something in it's place to keep everything steady.  Overall I would grade the game parts 7-8 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).

The game box is in EXCELLENT condition.  It has a few small holes and there is a stock sticker on the top flap but on the whole nice shape.  Still has bright colors and no stains or writing.  All the flaps are intact.   I would grade it a 7 on 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.
