Tru-Action Electric Baseball Game
There were a number of
different versions of the Tudor Electric Baseball game created during
it's production run. The early Tru-Action games had the pitcher hurl a
magnetic "ball" at a metal representation of a batter and backstop. The
batter would then try hit the backstop from behind with a spring-loaded
bat causing the ball to fly off into the field. The more recent
baseball game replaced this mechanism with a more traditional mounted
swinging bat. This is the very first edition of the game.
The game parts are in EXCELLENT condition. A really
nice example of this classic game. The game includes all the original
parts (including the "Ball") except for the instructions. The motor has
been tested and it works as it should. There are a few incidental
scratches and dings on the field from normal game play but it is really
in great shape overall. No rust. Overall I would grade the game parts
7-8 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).
The game box is in VERY GOOD-EXCELLENT condition. It
has a few holes punched in it and some minor staining on the box bottom
but on the whole much better than you typically find for this game. No
split corners and no writing. I would grade it a 6-7 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.
