This game was endorsed by a number of famous college football coaches (John McKay, Darrel Royal, Ara Parseghain and Charles McClendon). It's a pretty simple game - you just spin the cylinder and look up the play in the viewing slot based on the defense your opponent chose - but the game is nicely designed and it has nice period artwork.
The game parts are in VERY GOOD-EXCELLENT condition. The defense cards are still attached to each other so I assume the game was never played. There is some peeling on the decals but it is very minor. The corners of the grandstand cut-out have some scuffing and some tape stains and the cut-out football and 10 yd markers have some wear to the edges. On the whole though the game is in nice shape. Overall I would grade the game parts 6-7 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).
The game box is in VERY GOOD condition. No tears, stains or writing but there is rubbing and sun-fading on the artwork. I would grade it a 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.
