CADACO Slap-Shot Hockey Game
Cadaco has been publishing
games since the 1930's. They were perhaps most famous for their sports
games with such classics as ALL STAR BASEBALL, BAS-KET and FOTO
ELECTRIC FOOTBALL. To my knowledge they only ever produced 2 hockey
games - ALL STAR HOCKEY (similar game play to BAS-KET) and this SLAP
SHOT game. SLAP SHOT was originally released as PENGUIN HOCKEY in the
50's. It is much harder to find than the ALL STAR HOCKEY game.
The game parts are in
EXCELLENT condition. I have carefully inventoried and inspected the
game parts and everything has been accounted for. The game looks like
it was hardly played with. The main problem with this game is that in
order to make it easier to store Cadaco designed it to "fold-in" on
itself. But with the rink being made of cardboard it causes a bump at
center ice. This doesn't have too much affect on game play but it can
be kind of annoying. This copy also has a crease at center ice.
Otherwise the game is in great shape. Overall I would grade the game
parts 8 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).
The game box is in
EXCELLENT condition. Other than
the fact that there are creases the lid from having another game
stacked on top the box is in nice shape with no splits, stains or
writing and virtually no rubbing to the artwork. I would grade it a 7
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.
