MILTON BRADLEY
Swat Baseball Game
 1948 Edition

This classic action game was re-packaged a number of times from the 1920's - 1950's. It was originally simply called "Baseball". The flips a marble onto the field with a cardboard bat. The landing spot of the marble determines the result of the play. The final edition was scaled down and game play revised. It included a spinner to simulate balls and strikes, and the cardboard bat was replaced by a rotating top which shot the pitched ball off into the field.


milton bradley swat baseball game parts 1948

The game parts are in EXCELLENT condition.  All the parts have been accounted for. It does not appear that the game was played with at all. The field is spotless. Unfortunately the field has caved in from having the weight of marbles on it all these years, but I'm sure if you flipped it over and left some weight on it for awhile it would flatten out. One of the cardboard bats has a crease in the handle, but it is still stiff enough to flip the marble. There is also a spare bat. I would grade the game 7-8 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).


milton bradley swat baseball game box 1948

The game box is in EXCELLENT condition. There is some minor scuffing to the corners and edges in a few spots and a couple very minor stains. There is one split corner. I would grade it 7-8 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).

CONDITION GUIDE: 

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.
