Intercollegiate Football Game
the Great American
Baseball Game there are a number of different
versions of this game out there. The original was put out by
Frantz in the early 20's. A few years later Hustler Toys took
production and simply took the Franz version as is and pasted a
"Hustler" sticker over the "Fantz" logo on the spinner (the billboard
on the left side of the field still bears the Frantz advertisement).
3 was reprinted by Hustler and all references to Frantz are removed
from the board. The final version was put out a few years ago
by Shylling Toys. There are no references to Frantz or
Hustler in the last version. The game features very nice
The game is in VERY GOOD
condition. The surface is in nice shape for a game of this age. No
major scratches. No dents. No rust. Just a light film that dulls the
finish. The wooden frame is intact with no chips or cracks and retains
it's original stain.
The spinner mechanism works
fine but the cylinder tends to shift over time causing it to disengage
from the gear that makes it spin. When this occurs you need to stick
your hand underneath and slide the cylinder over to the side with the
gear on it. The previous owner crosssed out some of the play results on
the cylinder and wrote in his own. This was done in pencil so it can
probably be erased. The original results are still visible underneath
the cross-out results. There were also a few notations made on the
instructions panel on the underside of the game.
(10): I will only give this grade
to brand new, unused items. NEAR MINT (9):
Shows virtually no use. Seldom if ever played.
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 well taken care of.
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
faired pretty well. Game
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 playable as
is. 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.
Game will be missing
parts (these will be noted). Box will have serious damage and
be missing aprons or badly torn.
