RGI
YOGI BERRA 
MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL GAME
1973



RGI released a number of celebrity endorsed statistical replay sports games during the late 60's and early 70's.  They included the VINCE LOMBARDI FOOTBALL GAME, THE FRAN TARKENTON FOOTBALL GAME, the OSCAR ROBERTSON PRO BASKETBALL STRATEGY GAME, the GIL HODGES PENNANT FEVER BASEBALL GAME, JACKIE STEWART RACING GAME and ROCKY GRAZIANO BOXING GAME.   

In the early 1970's the company evidently decided that the fees involved in getting the rights to use the names of real players and  teams was too high and they switched to much simpler versions of their games.  There are no player or team stats involved in these.  These games were released under the "PLAY THE PROS MONIKER".  Yogi Berra Baseball is one of these later games.   I have never seen this (or any of the other later versions) offered for sale before I bought this one on EBay so I suspect they are pretty rare.  


RGI YOGI BERRA BASEBALL GAME PARTS

The game parts are in VERY GOOD condition.  It is 100% complete with all game components accounted for.  Even includes the special World Series book that is often missing from the game.  The board has a light crease.  The instructions and scoresheets have light handling wear.  The pitch selection cards show use as well.  Overall I would grade the game parts 5 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).  

RGI YOGI BERRA BASEBALL GAME BOX

The game box is in POOR-GOOD condition.  All the parts of the box are there but there are numerous tears that were mended with tape.  No stains or writing.  Wear to the edges and corners.   I would grade it a 2-3 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.
