Bob Feller Big League Baseball Game
1960's Travel Edition
Bob Feller endorsed a
number of baseball games during his life. This one is the "Travel"
edition of Saalfields Big League Baseball game from the 50's. There is
also a full-sized edition of the game with Feller's endorsement as well
as a plain Big League Baseball with no endorsement. They are all fairly
simple games wherein the play result is determined by the spinner. The
play results are supposed to be based on an average of all actual major
The game parts are in EXCELLENT-NEAR MINT condition.
The game shows very little use. Just some minor wear in the path of the
spinners. I am not sure how many pegs it should come with but there are
7 included. Seems like it is probably missing at least 1. Overall I
would grade the game parts 8-9 on a 10 scale (see condition guide
The game box is in VERY GOOD-EXCELLENT condition.
One very minor stain on the front, no writing, no splits. Just a bit of
crushing at the bottom edge. I would grade it a 6-7 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.
