W.E.I. GILL inc.
earl gillespie baseball game 1961




The voice of the Milwuakee Braves during the 50's and early 60's Gillespie was one of the most animated of the play-by-play men of the era.  He is one of the announcers credited with popularizing the phrase "Holy Cow".  This is a simple game with play results determined by whatever is stated on the card face.  

earl gillespie parts 1961

The game parts are in NEAR MINT condition.  The game includes a complete set of cards, instructions and score sheets.   The game looks like it has never been played.  Overall I would grade the game parts 9 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).  

earl gillespie box 1961

The game box is in EXCELLENT condition.  No split corners, very little rubbing, no writing.  Just a tiny bit of edge and corner wear.  I would grade it a 8 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.
