1970 season EDITION

This the original format of the SPORTS ILLUSTRATED BASEBALL GAME.  It had numerous cosmetic changes over the course of it's existence but the basic game play remained the same.

sports illustrated baseball game charts

Overall I would say the team charts are in VERY GOOD condition.  The game contains a complete set of 24 team charts reflecting the 1970 season stats. I have inventoried and inspected the charts and every chart has been accounted for. They have typical handling creases and light fingerprint soiling. No writing.  No tears.  I would grade them 5-6 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).  

sports illustrated baseball game parts

The other game parts are in VERY GOOD condition.  The game is complete with the exception of the plastic baserunner chips.  You can easily substitute something else for these.  They are simply chips with numbers on them which indicate the speed of the baserunners.  Otherwise all the parts that were originally included in this edition of the game accounted for. There are only a handful of blank scoresheets remaining.  The instructions and special situations charts show typical handling creases and light fingerprint soiling.  No tears or writing.  Overall I would grade the game parts 5-6 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).

sports illustrated baseball game box

The game box is in GOOD-VERY GOOD condition.  The lid has 3 split corners and a few faint stains.  The box bottom has 1 split corner and some heavier staining.  Overall I would grade the box a 4-5 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.  Cards will have at worst some dented corners from shuffling around in the box.  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.  Charts may have denting to the corners, perhaps a few may have light stains or other very light handling wear but the vast majority will be close to flawless.  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.  Charts will have light handling creases or light stains.  Perhaps a couple may have a few stray pen marks or a small edge tear.  All chart results will be fully readable.  Other 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.  Charts will show moderate to heavy use and many will be yellowed, stained, creased or written on.  A couple may be torn and taped back together.  All card results will be fully readable.  Other 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.  Charts are heavily worn and some are badly damaged.  Game will be missing parts (these will be noted).  Box will have serious damage and may be missing aprons or badly torn.
