This game is part of the series of sports game released by Milton Bradley in co-ordination with ABC's Wide World Of Sports TV show during the late 1970's.   The games are all pretty simple.  To my knowledge only 3 games were ever released - Tennis, Golf and Auto Racing.

milton bradley abc wide world of sports game parts

The game parts are in EXCELLENT-NEAR MINT condition.  I have done a thorough inventory and inspection of the game parts and it includes all the parts that originally came with this edition game.  It appears that the game was rarely, if ever, played with but the track pieces have suffered some rubbing during storage and the instructions show light handling.  Overall I would grade the game parts 8-9 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).  

milton bradley abc wide world of sports game box

The game box is in VERY GOOD condition. The lid has 2 split corners and some rubbing but no stains or writing and no scuffing.  The box bottom is nice and white but has some scraping along the edges near one corner.  It is a bit bowed on the sides as you can see in the pics.  I would grade the box 6 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.
