Avalon Hill / Sports Illustrated BOWL BOUND
COLLEGE FOOTBALL Game w/Set #1 Charts

BOWL BOUND is the follow-up to the SPORTS ILLUSTRATED COLLEGE FOOTBALL GAME of the early 70's. It is essentially the same game and the charts from earlier game can be used with the later game and vice-versa. Each game includes a set of color coded team charts. The charts reflects the success of the team in running a variety of offensive and defensive plays. It is one of the most playable sports simulations ever created yet still manages to produce realistic results.

This listing is for a complete game. It includes all the components you need to play this edition the game. This is a really nice copy. It would make a great gift. 


sports illustrated bowl bound college football game charts set #1

The chart set is overall in NEAR MINT condition. The game contains a complete set of team charts. The charts represent some of the best College Football teams from the 1960's, and a handful from 1970. I have inventoried and inspected each of the charts and each and every chart has been accounted for. The charts are all original SI printed charts, not photocopies. They show minimal handling. No stains, writing, tears or signifcant creases. Just a couple with light handling folds. I would grade them 9 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).


sports illustrated bowl bound college football game parts 1978

The other game parts are in EXCELLENT-NEAR MINT condition. The game is 100% complete with all of the game components accounted for. The only issue is that there is some tanning / light foxing to one side of the instructions sheet from being pressed up a piece of cardboard for all these years. Otherwise the game parts look brand new. Overall I would grade the game parts 8-9 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).


sports illustrated bowl bound college football game box 1978

The game box is in EXCELLENT-NEAR MINT condition. No stains, writing or creasing. No split corners. There is a bit of faint rubbing and there is a small tear in the box bottom apron where it appears that some excess glue dripped out from under the box art at the edge and caused it to stick to the lid. I would grade it a 8-9 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).

Do you know that sinking feeling when you are in the middle of replaying a season or sequence of games only to find that the card for one of the key players is missing?  Well I have thoroughly inventoried this set and compared it to the roster list so you can be assured that you won't get that feeling while playing with this set. I am not of the opinion that a simple card count will do. The sets often came with missing or duplicate cards from the factory, and who knows what the original owner may have done with them in the course of playing with them....  Be sure to ask your card seller if they have in fact verified that the card set is complete by comparing it to the original roster list.  

I have also carefully inspected each and every card in order to determine the condition grade I have given to this set.  I do not feel that a cursory flipping through of the cards is adequate to determine the condition of a set - it is too easy to miss something.  Once again -  I would suggest asking your card seller to verify that they have done a careful inspection of the condition of all the cards in the set before putting their grade on it.

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. Cards will have at worst some dented corners from shuffling around in the box. 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 taken care of well. Cards may have denting to the corners, perhaps a few may have light stains or other very light handling wear, but the vast majority will be close to flawless. 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 fared pretty well. Cards will have dented corners and perhaps some may have rubber band wear to the edges. A few cards (less than 10%) may have handling creases, yellowing to the edges (a few may be yellowed on the faces), or light stains. Perhaps a couple may have writing or some dried rubber band residue (this will be noted). All card results will be fully readable. Other 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 perfectly playable. Cards will show moderate to heavy use and many will be yellowed, stained, creased, written on or have rubber band residue. A couple may be torn and taped back together. All card results will be fully readable. Other 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. Cards are heavily worn and some are badly damaged. Game will be missing parts (these will be noted). Box will have serious damage and may be missing aprons or badly torn.
