PARKER BROTHERS
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 though - a simple dice-drived game.


parker brothers baseball football checkers game parts

The game parts are in VERY GOOD condition.  All the parts have been accounted for and they are all original to this edition of the game. The board has a few scuff marks on the edges and corners and some small stains (mostly the football side). No tears or other significant damage. Baseball instructions have some stains and the sample scoresheet on the back was filled in by the previous owner. The football instructions have light handling wear. Neither is torn or badly damaged. Game also includes the original dice, original dice shaker and the hard to find original cork with the push-pin markers. Even has all the inner cardboard packing materials. A nice complete set. I would grade the game parts 6 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).


parker brothers baseball football checkers baseball game box

The game box is in VERY GOOD condition. The lid has typical shelf wear including some light stains and some scuffing to the edges and corners. 1 corner has been mended with scotch tape. The box bottom has some yellowing, stains and a stray pencil mark, but still in pretty decent shape considering the age. Overall I would grade the box a 5 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.
