Coleco Table Hockey Team
There were 2 main versions
of the plastic Coleco
teams. The 1970's version had decals with helmet-less players and solid
bases. These bases were usually white. The 1980's versions had decals
of helmeted players and framed bases with hollow centers. These bases
were usually black. The dates I am using are approximate and there may
be some cross-over. This team is in EXCELLENT condition. Goalie is
missing the part of his back sticker that fits over the post mount in
the picture but I found it in the box afterwards so it will be
included. Nice clean set. No stains or writing and, with the possible
exception of one player, no fading. There is one who looks slightly
lighter than the rest but that could be a printing flaw. The white
background is perhaps a bit yellowed. No cracked bases. All mounting
brackets are intact. Little, if any, warping. I would grade it a 8 on a
10 scale (see condition guide below).
I will only give this grade
to brand new, unused items. NEAR MINT (9):
Shows virtually no use. Seldom if ever played.
Perhaps just the slightest bit of scuffing to the
body or a tiny bit of paint loss in the post mount. No rust,
no bending. EXCELLENT (7-8):
These were played with but very lightly. Some minor
paint scuffs probably a little heavier in the post mounts.
Maybe a tiny bit of rust starting in the mounts.
Perhaps a couple may have minor bending but they will lie
basically flat. VERY GOOD (5-6):
The players were not especially well cared for but are not
worn. There will be some scuffing from normal use as well as
normal wear to the post mounts. There may be some small rust
spots but nothing that will detract from the general attractiveness of
the players. Some players may have bends. GOOD (3-4):
Obviously no care was taken with the players but they are still
is. There will be noticeable rust, paint wear
and bending. POOR
Only suitable to fill a space in your collection.
Heavy wear. May be incomplete set.
