CADACO Bas-Ket Basketball Game
 1970 Edition

Bas-ket was one of the most popular games Cadaco ever created. Cadaco manufactured the game from 1938-2004, and in 2011 Ideal issued a very similar game called "Street Hoops".  Game play is very simple. There are holes placed across the board to give different shooting angles. Each hole contains a flipper.  Players try to flip the ball into their opponents' basket.  The artwork in the game changed quite a bit over the years, but game play remained the same.

Cadaco Bas-Ket Basketball Game Parts 1970

The game parts are in VERY GOOD-EXCELLENT condition. The game is 100% complete. It includes the playing field (with all levers in perfect working order), the backboards, the plastic baskets and the ball. I am unsure if the ball is original to the set but the game uses a standard ping pong-type ball and that is what is included. The ball has staining. The nets are free of tears and the backboards and court are free of stains or writing. The court is slightly caved in but the game can still be played fine as is. The game does have a "musty" smell to it. Overall I would grade the game parts 7 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).

Cadaco Bas-Ket Basketball Game box 1970

The game box is in VERY GOOD-EXCELLENT condition. The lid and box bottom both have suffered some dishing from stacking. The colors are nice and bright. There is a hint of some foxing on the 2 short aprons. Otherwise no stains and no writing. The game does have a "musty" smell. No split corners. I would grade the box a 6-7 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. Cards will have at worst some dented corners from shuffling around in the box. 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 taken care of well. Cards may have denting to the corners, perhaps a few may have light stains or other very light handling wear, but the vast majority will be close to flawless. 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 fared pretty well. Cards will have dented corners and perhaps some may have rubber band wear to the edges. A few cards (less than 10%) may have handling creases, yellowing to the edges (a few may be yellowed on the faces), or light stains. Perhaps a couple may have writing or some dried rubber band residue (this will be noted). All card results will be fully readable. Other 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 perfectly playable. Cards will show moderate to heavy use and many will be yellowed, stained, creased, written on or have rubber band residue. A couple may be torn and taped back together. All card results will be fully readable. Other 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. Cards are heavily worn and some are badly damaged. Game will be missing parts (these will be noted). Box will have serious damage and may be missing aprons or badly torn.
