Tom Hamilton's Pigskin Football Game
1956 Edition

Tom Hamilton of Navy football fame endorsed this detailed Parker Brothers game. Plays a lot like a war game. You line up your pieces and probe your opponent to find his weaknesses. It originally came out in the 1930's and was re-released with different box art a number of times over the next 20+ years.

parker brothers tom hamilton's pigskin football game parts

The game parts are in VERY GOOD condition. I have carefully inventoried and inspected the game parts and everything has been accounted for. The board has suffered some foxing (small stains) and has warped from having the weight of the chart pad resting upon it for all these years. Some of the play selection cards have suffered some foxing as well but not enough to "give away" anything. The original inner cardboard packing materials are included as well. These have collapsed from the weight of the game parts. Overall I would grade the game parts 6 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).

The game box is in VERY GOOD condition. Two of the corners have been mended with clear tape and there is some foxing (small stain spots) on the lid near the top. I would grade it a 5 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.
