ABC Monday Night Football Game
There were a number of
"Computerized" games that were put out by various companies in the
early 70's. Most are not very good. This is one of the exceptions. The
"computer" mechanism used to get the results works well and there are
enough different plays to run that it doesn't get boring too quickly.
It was endorsed by Roger Staubach of the Dallas Cowboys. Aurora also
made a Monday Night Baseball verision of the game.
The game parts are in
condition. All the parts have been accounted for. The game
was never played with. The plastic pieces are still sealed in the
baggies and the play cards remain attached in to the cardboard backing.
I tested out the "computer" and it works as designed. The only issue
with the game is that the adhesive used on number decals for the
scoreboard has bled thru and caused some spotting on scoreboard.
Just some surface scuffs from normal
handling. I would grade the game 8 on a 10
scale (see condition guide below).
The game box is in VERY
condition. No stains, writing or crushing. A few scuffs, scrapes and
small edge tears. Much better than you typically find for this game. I
it 6-7 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).
(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
or other minor flaws with the game parts. Boxes will have
the slightest hint of shelf wear. EXCELLENT (7-8):
The game has seen some use but it was obviously well taken care of.
some light handling creases or other signs of
careful use. Board might have just a hint of color loss or
corners. Boxes will have light rubbing to the artwork or
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
rubbing, light staining, dishing, 1 or 2 neatly split corners,
minor writing and/or a few pieces of tape. No major
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
condition. Box may have staining, writing, split
dishing and/or other structural damage but it will be intact and still
Only suitable to fill a space in your collection.
Game will be missing
parts (these will be noted). Box will have serious damage and
be missing aprons or badly torn.
