Baseball Football and Checkers Game
 1948 Edition

Parker Brothers issued a number of different baseball related games over the years. This was one of the earliest with the oldest version dating to 1920's. The baseball version was initially sold on it's own under the name "College Baseball". It was then packaged with a football game and checkers as a "Double Game Board" then again re-branded as "3 games in 1". The artwork for the game changed a number of times during the 30+ years it was produced. It remained basically the same - a simple dice-drived game.

The game parts are in VERY GOOD condition.  The game was missing the baseball instructions but I have included a photocopy. The Football instructions are original and these show typical stains and light creasing. All the checkers are accounted for, as are the 4 colored pawns, the dice and 2 of the 3 push pin markers. There is no dice cup. The board has some stain spots and a few other random marks but on the whole good shape. Spine is in solid with no danger of tearing. So basically everything you need to play the game is included with the exception of one push pin marker which can easily be substituted. I would grade the game 5 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).

The game box is in GOOD-VERY GOOD condition. It has some typical age-related staining, particularly on 2 of the sides, but nothing too terrible. There is also creasing in places. No split corners but a tear in the middle of one of the short sides. Box bottom has typical staining as well but again no splits. There is no writing anywhere on the box. I would grade it 4-5 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.
