Psychic Baseball had a few different editions produced during the early-mid 20th Century. The first version was made by the Psychic Baseball company in 1927 followed by a slightly revised version in 1929. Both of these were packaged in a small, nicely illustrated box that served as a board for keeping track of the position of the base-runners by poking small wooden pegs into the lid. Players drew cards to determine the outcome of each at bat. This was done by playing cards for each pitch, followed by playing another for hit determination and yet another for baserunning . It was actually a pretty sophisticated game for the time. Parker Brothers then bought the rights to the game and re-issued it in 1935. This version came in a large box with a much bigger playing board and used the standard Parker Brothers wooden pegs found in many games of that era .
The game parts are in VERY GOOD condition. The game includes all the parts that originally came with this edition of the game. There is no parts list included with the game but I have compared it to other copies (right down to the individual cards) and all parts have been accounted for. The cards have some fingerprint soiling and a few minor corner creases but none are torn or badly creased. The instructions have some handling wear in the form of light creases and a couple small edge tears but no stains or writing. There are 3 original scoresheets (these have all been partially filled in) as well as the scoring instructions sheet. Field is in very nice shape with no caving or staining. It does have some faint markings probably caused by dragging the base-runner pawns along the base paths. Overall I would grade the game parts 5 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).
The game box is in GOOD condition. 3 of the 4 corners on the lid have been mended with glue and it appears that some of the aprons have been mended as well. It is still very visually attractive though with nice colors, no writing and minimal staining. I would grade it a 3-4 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.
