Tudor was best known for it's Electric Football Game but they
variey of vibrating electric games including Baseball,
Auto Racing and Horse Racing. They also produced a table
There were a number of different versions of the Tudor Electric Baseball game created during it's production run. The early Tru-Action games had the pitcher hurl a magnetic "ball" at a metal representation of a batter and backstop. The batter would then try hit the backstop from behind with a spring-loaded bat causing the ball to fly off into the field. The more recent baseball game replaced this mechanism with a more traditional mounted swinging bat.
This is the early 1970's edition of the game with the team names listed on the grandstands. It was the only time that Tudor had the rights to use Major League Baseball team names on it's products. There were 2 versions produced. The 1st version had the Senators and Pilots included as 2 of the teams, the 2nd version was updated to reflect those teams changing to the Rangers and Brewers. This is the 2nd version.
The game parts are in NEAR MINT-MINT condition. As you can see from the pics the game was never played with. All the parts are just as they would have come from the factory. Even includes the wood-grain paper bag they were stored in. The only flaw I can see is there is just a hint of tarnishing on the board in a few spots if you look very closely. Overall I would grade the game parts 9-10 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).
The game box is in VERY GOOD condition. This is the Sears edition of the game. It comes in a plain brown box rather than the box with the artwork that you would buy in a store. There is some foxing on the box (small brown spots) and the top flap is torn. I would grade it a 5-6 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.
