NEGAMCO BASKETBALL GAME
WITH 1982-83 NBA SEASON 


negamco BASKETBALL game TEAMS

Negamco (originally Nemadji) has been around since the late 1950's.  After an initial run of the Basketball game in 1959 the company merged with the Big League Manager company and for most of it's original run was distributed and produced in conjunction with that game.  While the same company produced both games they marketed the Negamco series of games as the "little brother" to the Big League Manager series since they were simpler and less expensive games.   To my knowledge the games were available only through mail order.   The company stopped producing new season sets in the 1990s. 

I'm far from an expert on Negamco games but I believe this is the original issue for this particular season.  The form for ordering additional card sets that is included with the game only goes up to the 1981 season and none of the reprint card sets that I have seen use the yellow card stock that these are printed on.     


negamco BASKETBALL game parts

The game parts are in EXCELLENT-NEAR MINT condition.   I believe it includes all the parts that originally came with this edition of the game.   The back of the rulebook mentions each team having a team defense rating card beginning with the 1970 edition of the game but there are none of those included.  Not sure if they were lost or were never issued.  Otherwise everything is there and looks like it was barely played with.  Overall I would grade the game parts 8-9 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).  

negamco BASKETBALL game box

The game box is in VERY GOOD condition.  It has a split on one of the short aprons and some small faint stains on the lid.   I would grade it a 6 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.
