CADACO BAS-KET BASKETBALL GAME
1954 EDITION


Cadaco has been manufacturing this game since the 30's (a very similar 1/2 court game was put out by Whitman in the 20's).  Cadaco changed the artwork a number of times over the years but the game play remained the same as it was when it first came out 60+ years ago.  


CADACO BAS-KET BASKETBALL GAME 1954 Edition parts

The game parts are in GOOD - VERY GOOD condition.  The game is 100% complete.  It includes the playing field (with all levers in perfect working order), the backboards, intact net baskets and the ball.  The nets are in very nice shape for this game.  Ball is the original one that came with the game.  It is dented but can still be used.  The game also works well with any ordinary ping pong ball.  The board has some light wear including a scrape mark near center.  It should not affect game play but if you find that it does all you would need to do is sand it down a bit to flatten it out.  Overall I would grade the game parts 4-5 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).

CADACO BAS-KET BASKETBALL GAME 1954 Edition box

The game box is in GOOD - VERY GOOD condition.  I would say that considering it's age and considering how bad the boxes on many of these games look it has faired pretty well.  I would grade it a 4-5 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).

All in all this is a decent copy of one of the first editions of the classic Cadaco Bas-ket game.

CONDITION GUIDE: 

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.
