LORD & FERBER
Line Drive Baseball Game
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
The game parts are in VERY
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
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
it 2-3 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).
Price includes shipping
(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.
