Line Drive Baseball Game
 1953 Edition

Simple but fun card based game. Attractive design. The game received a significant marketing effort and sold fairly well regionally but I don't believe the company ever produced any other games.

The game parts are in VERY GOOD condition.  The game was missing some of the clear red marker discs when I acquired it but I have replaced these with similar markers. The instructions and scorepad show typical handling wear, with a bit of scribbling on the front of the instructions, but no significant damage. All the cards have been accounted for and these show only light handling. None are creased or torn. None have any writing or significant stains. Just a few cards with light fingerprint stains. The board has a few rub marks and light creases but it's in good shape. Overall I would grade the game parts a 6 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).

The game box is in POOR-GOOD condition. As you can see from the picture it has many flaws. 3 of the 4 corners on the lid have split and it is missing a small part of 2 of the side aprons. The box bottom is in similar visual condition, but does not have any split corners or mising pieces.  I would grade it 2-3 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.   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 well taken care of.  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 faired pretty well.  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 playable as is.  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.  Game will be missing parts (these will be noted).  Box will have serious damage and may be missing aprons or badly torn.
