Avalon Hill/Sports Illustrated's PENNANT RACE was a simpler version of a statistical replay game. Instead of playing out an entire game batter by batter it used random numbers to generate a likely end result for each game. This allows you to replay the season much quicker. I believe it was only produced for 3 seasons (1982-84). It has no relation to the earlier PENNANT RACE game released by Sports Illustrated in 1972.
The game parts are in VERY GOOD-EXCELLENT condition. The game has been verified to be 100% complete with all the parts of the game accounted for. The game contains a complete set of team charts for all 3 years that the game was produced. There are enough Club Record sheets and League Standings sheets to get started but you will need to make photocopies if you intend to play a lot. The instructions have some typical handling wear including a bit of writing. Overall I would grade the game parts 6-7 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).
The game box
is in VERY GOOD-EXCELLENT condition. It has some general
shelf wear but no stains or writing and no split corners. I would grade it a 6-7 on a
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.
