WARD CUFF'S FOOTBALL GAME
1938 edition


Endorsed by former NFL player Ward Cuff this is a large live-action game in which the players set their men up in formation and then run plays by launching them from a rubber band powered "shooter".  You can also kick field goals, punts and PATs.  There are no provisions for passing but the game plays like a very simplistic version of electric football so I'm sure you could incorporate passing using the "kicker" as well.

CONTINENTAL WARD CUFF'S FOOTBALL GAME parts 1

CONTINENTAL WARD CUFF'S FOOTBALL GAME parts 2


The game parts are in VERY GOOD condition.  The game is 100% complete.  It includes the field, 2 shooters, 2 complete teams, goal post, football, down marker, 10 yard chain, 2 kicking wedges and 2 of the original packing inserts.  The game has been played with so there are pinholes in the field.  The 10 yard chain is broken.  Overall I would grade the game parts 5 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).  

CONTINENTAL WARD CUFF'S FOOTBALL GAME box

The game box is in VERY GOOD condition.  There is some pencil writing and a tear in the cover art where it looks like a price tag was removed.  No split corners.  Box bottom is sunken from being stacked on top of another game.  I would grade it a 5 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.
