Baseball Football and Checkers Game
Parker Brothers issued a
number of different
baseball related games over the years. This was one of the earliest
with the oldest version dating to 1920's. The baseball version was
initially sold on it's own under the name "College Baseball". It was
then packaged with a football game and checkers as a "Double Game
Board" then again re-branded as "3 games in 1". The artwork for the
game changed a number of times during the 30+ years it was produced. It
remained basically the same though - a simple dice-drived game.
The game parts are in
EXCELLENT-NEAR MINT condition. The game is 100% complete with all parts
accounted for. It appears that the football game was never played as
the game requires you to stick pins in the board to mark your progress
on the field and there are no pin holes evident. The other game boards
likewise look unused. Overall I would grade the game parts 8-9 on a 10
scale (see condition guide below).
The game box is in VERY GOOD condition. There are a
few faint water spots, a few scuffs on the edges and corners and one
corner has been mended with masking tape. On the whole though it's in
nice shape with bright colors and no writing or significant creasing. I
would grade it a 6 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.
