PRESSMAN tABLETOP GAME
CARL YASTRZEMSKI ACTION BASEBALL




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.

I believe this version came out in the late 60's after Yaz's triple crown year of 1967.   It features a facsimile autograph printed on the field near the batter.

The game is in EXCELLENT condition.  It shows minimal play wear with no significant scratches, dents or rust.  The pitcher and batter mechanisms both work as they should.  It includes all the parts that originally came with the game with the exception of an insert describing Yaz's hitting tips.  This is not needed to play the game.  The bell has some tarnishing.  The pegs are free of breaks.  Overall I would grade the game parts 8 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).

The game box is in GOOD-VERY GOOD condition.  It is missing the top flap but is otherwise in really nice shape.  No siginficant stains.  No writing.  Much better than you typically find for this game.   I would grade it a 4-5 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.
