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 relaeased 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". This particular copy is the very first edition.
The game parts are in VERY GOOD condition. The game is 100% complete. It has obviously been played with. There are fingerprint stains on the play cards and the instructions have handling creases. That said it was not abused. The game shows only normal play wear. The field is in good shape with no tears or stains. The colors are still vibrant. The cardboard light frame is intact (although a bit bent out of shape) and the mechanism works as it should. Overall I would grade the game parts 5-6 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).
The game box is in VERY GOOD condition. The original tape seam along the bottom edge is partially intact. The side flaps are fully intact. It has some scrapes along the edges and corners. I would grade it a 5-6 on a 10 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.
