AMERICAN VARSITY FOOTBALL GAME
1934 EDITION




This is a very simple spinner-driven game from the 1930's.  The instructions are printed on the inside of the box lid.  Measures 10x6.5 inches.   The game features very nice period artwork.

The game is in NEAR MINT condition.  It does not appear that the game was ever played with.  No wear in the path of the spinner.  No stains, writing or creases.   Overall I would grade the game parts a 9 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below) .

The game box is in EXCELLENT condition.  Nice bright colors, no fading.  A couple very minor stains and light creases.  No splits.  No crushing.  Box bottom has a faint stain near the top and a crease in the lower left corner.  It is free of stains or writing.  I would grade the box a 8 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.
