woolsey's football game kicker

This game was similar in concept to the later Super Jock Football game.  You line up the kicker at different points along a yardage marker and try to kick the ball through the various  cut-outs in a cardboard backdrop.   The kicker alone is very sought after as  these old cast-iron mechanical toys are highly collectible.  It is rare to find it with the ball and even scarcer with all the game components.

This listing is for just the kicker and the ball.  I don't have any of the other game parts.  The kicker is GOOD condition.  He has some typical paint-loss but is mechanically sound.  When you cock his kicking leg it locks into place and is released when you depress the trigger mechanism.  The leg does not swing with much force so the ball does not go far.  Perhaps he just needs some oil but it could be a weak spring.  I would grade it a 3-4 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).

I am not sure if the ball is original to the game but it is the correct size.  It is made of hard rubber and other than some typical scuffing from game play it's in good shape.

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.
