PARKER BROTHERS
PEG BASEBALL GAME
1926 edition



Parker Brothers issued a number of different baseball related games over the years.   I believe Peg Baseball was the first with the oldest version dating to 1900.  The artwork for the game changed a number of times during the 60+ years it was produced.  The game remained basically the same though - a simple dice-drived game. 

There are 2 different versions of the game that use this box art style.  The earlier one (which this copy is an example of) uses the beveled pegs, wooden dice shaker and the miniature dice that were found in the earliest editions of the game.  

parker brothers peg baseball game parts

The game parts are in EXCELLENT condition.  The game is 100% complete with all parts accounted for.  It looks like the game was rarely played with.  The field is free of stains, writing or rubbing.  Pegs and dice are in great shape. The instructions have a some tanning, some creases and a small edge tear.  Overall I would grade the game parts 7 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).

The game box is in VERY GOOD condition.  The lid has some faint staining and some scuffing / chipping at the corners.  1 split corner.  Colors are nice and bright.  No sun-fading.  Box bottom shows some staining.   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.
