American Varsity Football Game
This is a very simple
spinner-driven game from the
1930's. The instructions are printed on the inside of the box lid.
Measures 10x6.5 inches. The game features very nice period artwork.
The game is in NEAR MINT
condition. It does not appear that the game was ever played with. No
wear in the path of the spinner. No stains, writing or creases. Overall
I would grade the game parts a 9 on a 10 scale (see condition guide
The game box is in EXCELLENT condition. Nice bright
colors, no fading. A couple very minor stains and light creases. No
splits. No crushing. Box bottom has a faint stain near the top and a
crease in the lower left corner. It is free of stains or writing. I
would grade the box a 8 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.
