DIZZY DEAN BATTER-ROU BASEBALL GAME 1955


Endorsed by Hall of Fame player / broadcaster Dizzy Dean this is an unusal game that  generates play results through the use of 2 roulette wheels.  It is very difficult to find with all the pieces.  

MEMPHIS PLASTIC DIZZY DEAN BATTER-ROU BASEBALL GAME 1955 parts

The game parts are in EXCELLENT condition.  Everything has been accounted for and it's all in wonderful condition.  Shows virtually no use.  I'm not sure if the balls are original to the set but they seem to be the perfect size.  Overall I would grade the game parts 8 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).  

MEMPHIS PLASTIC DIZZY DEAN BATTER-ROU BASEBALL GAME 1955 box

The game box is in GOOD-VERY GOOD condition.  It has some problems including 4 split corners (as well as one side being about 1/2 detached), a small tear in the cover art just above Dean's head and a piece of tape on each of the long sides.  This was used to hold the box shut and has now torn the artwork where it was partially removed.  One of the corner splits looks like it was taped and then ripped apart resulting in the loss of the litho at that corner.  That said it is still very attractive with no fading, no staining or writing and very bright colors.  Box bottom is in similar condition with some light staining.  I would grade the box a 4 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.
