STARS ON STRIPES
Football Game 1941 Edition
This is a well-designed
game that was endorsed by
many respected coaches and broadcasters. It managed to see pretty
wide-spread distribution for such a small company.
The game parts are in VERY
GOOD condition. I have carefully inventoried and inspected the game
parts and everything has been accounted for. The insructions and
advertising insert are badly creased and the field has some rubbing but
on the whole the game parts are in nice shape. No stains or writing.
Overall I would grade the game parts 6 on a 10 scale (see condition
The game box is in VERY GOOD condition. The artwork
is bright and still very attractive with only a few faint stains and
very little rubbing. The box appears to have been expertly repaired as
you can see where the sides have split and been glued back together.
Unfortunately the box bottom has a whole punched in it. I would grade
it a 5 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.
