HOT CORNER Baseball Game
ATG Teams Included

This game had a bit of a following during the late 80's- 90's. It's been out of print for quite some time now. The company issued a number of classic teams as well as some complete seasons. A unique thing about this company was that they gave you 2 formats to choose from when purchasing additional teams or seasons. You could either purchase teams with individual player cards (like APBA and STRAT) or with all the info for the team presented in chart form (like the old S.I. BASEBALL games). And with the individual player cards format you could not only order individual teams but choose individual players as well. The earlier games had cards that looked like they came right off a type-writer. The later cards were more polished.

This particular copy is the basic starter game. It comes with 26 All Time Great teams - 13 teams in the card format and 13 in the chart format. The teams included are as follows:

CARD FORMAT 1913 Giants, 1927 Yankees, 1931 A's, 1934 Tigers, 1943 Cardinals, 1946 Red Sox, 1953 Dodgers, 1954 Indians, 1961 Yankees, 1969 Orioles, 1975 Reds, 1984 Tigers, 1986 Mets
CHART FORMAT 1906 Cubs, 1909 Pirates, 1939 Yankees, 1942 Dodgers, 1954 Giants, 1962 Twins, 1965 Twins, 1968 Tigers, 1970 Reds, 1974 Dodgers, 1977 Yankees, 1977 Royals, 1988 A's

The cards are in NEAR MINT condition. It does not appear that they were played with at all. I have done a thorough inventory of the cards and they are all present with the exception of one card (Paul Blair of the 1977 New York Yankees). Overall I would grade the cards a 9 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).

The game parts are in EXCELLENT-NEAR MINT condition. The box contains all the parts that originally came with this edition of the game. There is a small bit of writing on the cover of the instructions booklet. Overall I would grade the game parts 8-9 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).

The game box is in VERY GOOD-EXCELLENT condition. Just some general light shelf wear. I would grade it a 6-7 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).

Do you know that sinking feeling when you are in the middle of replaying a season or sequence of games only to find that the card for one of the key players is missing?  Well I have thoroughly inventoried this set and compared it to the roster list so you can be assured that you won't get that feeling while playing with this set. I am not of the opinion that a simple card count will do. The sets often came with missing or duplicate cards from the factory, and who knows what the original owner may have done with them in the course of playing with them....  Be sure to ask your card seller if they have in fact verified that the card set is complete by comparing it to the original roster list.  

I have also carefully inspected each and every card in order to determine the condition grade I have given to this set.  I do not feel that a cursory flipping through of the cards is adequate to determine the condition of a set - it is too easy to miss something.  Once again -  I would suggest asking your card seller to verify that they have done a careful inspection of the condition of all the cards in the set before putting their grade on it.


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.
