Pressman is well-known for it's ACTION BASEBALL Tabletop Games of the 1950's and 1960's. There were a number of different editions but they were all essentially the same game except for the player endorsements. Pressman also produced a tabletop game in the 70's which was a combination Baseball / Hockey game. The hockey game is a basic knock hockey game that is played inside a wooden tray. The baseball game is very similar to the older games. It fits into the tray right on top of the hockey game. It's a pretty clever design.
The game is in EXCELLENT condition. It does not have any pegs or other game components that came with it originally. Just the board and mechanism. The frame is solid and the batting and pitching mechanisms are intact. I tried the game out with a marble and could not get it to pitch correctly but I may have been doing it wrong. There is a small dent in the lower right corner (near the balls and strikes peg holes). Otherwise nice shape with no significant scratches, dents, stains or writing. Overall I would grade condition of the game 7-8 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).
The game box is in GOOD condition. Some staining and other general shelf wear. All the corners are split. I would grade it a 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.
