PARKER BROTHERS 
phil / tony espOsito action hockey
1973 Edition



This is a really fun vintage game that uses magnets mounted in the heads and feet of the skaters to allow you to move them inside the rink below the plastic lid.  Pretty much plays like a cross between table hockey and air hockey.  The game was endorsed by the famed Esposito Brothers who played for the Bruins and Blackhawks during the early 70's when this game came out.

 Parker Brothers ESPOSITO ACTION HOCKEY Game 1973

The game parts are in VERY GOOD-EXCELLENT condition.  It includes nearly everything you need to play the game: a complete set of players (6 per team), 2 pucks, 2 scoring pegs (one broken at the point), 2 controller magnets, the instructions, the rink with clear plastic cover and the stands.  All the players and controllers have their magnets.  The game is missing 2 of the 4 original controllers.  It should not be too difficult to make substitutes as the controller is really just a small rod with a magnet attached to the end.   The clear cover has some scuffing but that is to be expected since the players rub against it during game play.  Other than a broken piece on one of the corners (see pic) it is in really good shape.  Much better than the way you typically find these games.  Overall I would grade the game parts 6-7 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).

The game box is in GOOD condition.  It is pretty beat up and has some tape on it but it is useable.  Looks like it has suffered a little sun-fading.  I would grade it 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.
