LORD & FREBER
LINE DRIVE BASEBALL GAME
1953 edition



Simple but fun card based game.  Attractive design.  The game received a significant marketing effort and sold fairly well regionally but I don't believe the company ever produced any other games.   

lord and freber line drive baseball game parts

The game parts are in EXCELLENT condition.  The game is 100% complete with all parts accounted for.   The cards show typical light handling wear with some cards having light staining but none are torn, creased or written upon.  The playing field is very clean with bright colors and no caving.  The instructions have minimal wear and the scorepad still has about 10 sheets remaining.  The plastic red markers are all accounted for and are stored in the original glassine envelope.  Overall I would grade the game parts 7 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).  

lord and freber line drive baseball game box

The game box is in EXCELLENT condition.   The lid has only some light shelf wear but does have one split corner and a small tear in the cover art.  The box bottom has some discoloring but this is typical for a plain white box bottom.  No stains or writing, no split corners.   I would grade it a 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.
