Foto-Electric Football Game
 1971 Edition w/ Set D-1 Charts

Cadaco produced it's FOTO-ELECTRIC games from the 40's through the early 70's. It was somewhat based on the earlier Varsity Football game. While Foto-Electric Football was far more popular they also released a Foto-Electric Baseball game. In the late 70's Foto-Electric Football was re-released without the electric parts under the name "Foto-Football".

Cadaco Foto Electric Football Game Parts 1971

The game parts are in EXCELLENT condition. The game is 100% complete. It includes all the components that originally came with this edition of the game (even the oft-missing brass clips used to hold the scoreboard in place). There were a number of different play sets produced for this game over the years. This particular copy contains play set D-1. The scoreboard has some small stain spots (foxing) and a couple of the plays have light handling wear. The game unit is in great shape, not sunken like you find with a lot of these games. It has been tested and found in good working order.  Overall I would grade the game parts 7 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).

Cadaco Foto-Electric Football Game box 1971

The game box is in VERY GOOD-EXCELLENT condition. There is some indication of water staining on the box bottom and a small bit on the bottom edge of the side panels of the lid. Otherwise the box is in very nice shape.  I would grade it 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.
