Parker Brothers issued a number of different baseball related games over the years. This one, simply called "Baseball", first came out in 1950 and had 3 different incarnations. They all had nice box art and quality game parts. The game flow starts with a simple pitch guessing mechanism followed by the drawing of cards to get the details. It's a good basic baseball game.
The game parts are in EXCELLENT condition. The game is 100% complete with all parts accounted for. A few of the scoresheets have been filled out. The back of the instructions is discolored with age and there is a bit of light scuffing on the board from the knobs for the pitch selector sliding back and forth. Overall I would grade the game parts 7-8 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).
The game box is in EXCELLENT condition. Nice clean cover art. No stains or writing and vitrually no rubbing. Just some small creases near the corners from having another game stacked on top. No split corners. I would grade it a 7-8 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.
