CADACO FOTO ELECTRIC
FOOTBALL GAME
1966 edition



Cadaco produced it's FOTO-ELECTRIC games from the 40's through the early 70's.   It was based on the earlier Varsity Football game.  While Foto-Electric Football was far more popular they also released a Foto-Electric Baseball game.  In the late 70's Foto-Electric Football was re-released without the electric parts under the name "Foto-Football".  

CADACO FOTO ELECTRIC FOOTBALL GAME PARTS

The game parts are in EXCELLENT condition.  The game is complete.  It includes all the components that originally came with this edition of the game.  The game shows light play wear.  No tears or writing.  A few fingerprint smudges on some of the play cards.  The field is in really nice shape with no sagging and no damage to the rice-paper screen.  The only issue is that the game was missing Defense Card "F" when I acquired it but I have replaced it with an identical card from a slightly later version of the game.  Overall I would grade the game parts 7 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).  

CADACO FOTO ELECTRIC FOOTBALL GAME BOX

The game box is in VERY GOOD condition.   Some rubbing and other general shelf wear.  No tears.  No writing or signficant staining.  There is a small bare spot in the upper right corner of the lid where it appears that a price tag was removed.   I would grade it a 6 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).

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.
