NFL QUARTERBACK FOOTBALL GAME
TRANSOGRAM GAMES 1970




There were a number of "computerized" games that came out during the late 1960's-mid 1970's.  These were not what we think of today as computerized.  I guess the term had a much looser definition then....  This is one of those early games.  The 2 opposing coaches select their plays and depending on how the selections line up the game lights a bulb that reveals the play result.  The game features dials with the likenesses of all of the then-current NFL quarterbacks and you can select which one you will be playing as by spinning the dial.

The game is in VERY GOOD condition.  It has all it's parts except for the bulb so I can't test it.  It has been my experience that these types of games typically don't work as soon as you pop a battery in.  You should assume that it will need to be tweaked to get it going.  It is a very simple mechanism so if you are at all handy you will be able to get it working.  The paper field has some air bubbles but no tears, stains or writing.  Overall I would grade the game parts 5 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).

The game box is in VERY GOOD condition.  It has one partially split corner and some typical shelf wear.   I would grade it a 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.
