Tom Hamilton's Pigskin Football Game
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+
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).
(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.
