WHITMAN
KENTUCKY DERBY game 
HORSE RACING EDITION





Whitman manufactured a number of sports-themed games during it's lengthy tenure as one of the top board game producers in the USA.   This is a fairly sophisticated betting game fashioned after the Kentucky Derby.  Note this has no connection to the much simpler, earlier Whitman game of the same title.

whitman kentycky derby game parts

The game parts are in EXCELLENT condition.  The game includes all the parts that originally came with this edition of the game.  The plastic chips are still sealed in the original baggie, and everything else looks like it was hardly used at all.  The only issue is some faint foxing on the betting board and some cracking to the plastic storage tray.  Overall I would grade the game parts 7-8 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).  

whitman kentucky derby race game BOX

The game box is in VERY GOOD condition.  It has some faint foxing visible in spots (especially on the boxx bottom), but otherwise just some light shelf wear.  No split corners.  No writing.  I would grade it a 6 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.
