HASBRO / NBC SPORTS 
STRAIGHTAWAY GRAND PRIX RACING GAME

This game is part of the series of sports game released by Hasbro in co-ordination with NBC Sports during the late 1960's and early 70's.   These games all have the same basic format - a slender box containing the game components with a wrap-around vinyl playing board.  Very similar to the 3M Sports games of the same era.   All of the games feature high quality game parts.

The game parts are in VERY GOOD condition.  The cards, car charts and spinner are all in good shape.  There are 2 green cars and all the other cars are of different colors so I assume that one of these greens ones should be blue.  Also the number stickers have come off the cars.  The instructions have a few pen marks on them.  Overall I would grade the game parts 6 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).

The game box is in EXCELLENT condition.  I would grade it 7 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).  The wrap-around vinyl playing board is in VERY GOOD-EXCELLENT condition.  The playing surface is in nice shape but the back has some scuffs and scrapes.  I would grade it 6-7 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.
