Foto-Electric Baseball Game
Cadaco produced it's
FOTO-ELECTRIC games from the 40's through the early 70's.
While Foto-Electric Football was
far more popular, they also released a Foto-Electric Baseball game
which continued to be produced into the early 60's.
The game parts are in VERY
GOOD condition. The game is 100% complete. It shows typical handling
wear but not abuse. There are some fingerprints on the pitcher and
batter cards and on the scoreboard. All of the original scoresheets
were used up but I am including a couple from a copy of Cadaco All Star
Baseball that you can make copies from. The board is in good shape with
no stains or tears in the wax paper. The light works great. Overall I
would grade the game parts 5-6 on a 10 scale (see condition guide
The game box is in VERY GOOD condition. While it
does have some general shelf wear it's much better than you typically
find with this game. Nice bright colors. No writing. Just a couple
faint stains. One split corner that was mended with tape. I would grade
it a 6 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).
give this grade
to brand new, unused items. NEAR MINT (9):
Shows virtually no use. Seldom if ever played.
will have at worst some dented corners from shuffling around in the
box. 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 taken care of
well. Cards may have denting to the corners, perhaps
light stains or other very light handling wear, but the vast
majority will be close to flawless. Game parts
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
fared pretty well. Cards will have dented corners and
some may have rubber band wear to the edges. A few cards
than 10%) may have handling creases, yellowing to the
(a few may be yellowed on the faces), or light stains.
couple may have writing or some dried rubber band residue (this will be
noted). All card results will be fully readable.
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 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.
card results will be fully readable. Other 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.
heavily worn and some are badly damaged. Game will be missing
parts (these will be noted). Box will have serious damage and
be missing aprons or badly torn.
