NFL Strategy Football Game
There were a number of
different versions of this
game produced over the years. The plays included with the game vary
depending on the edition. This is the very first (1970) version which
different offensive plays and 12 defensive plays.
The game parts are in VERY
condition. All the parts have been accounted for with the exception of
the storage tray (not used to play the game). The cards show
only light play wear. No creases or writing. Just some minor edge wear
handling. As is usually the case with the older versions of this game,
the defense plays have yellowed with age. The console is in very nice
shape. The mechanical timer is in working condition (with most of the
copies you find on EBay the timer does not work any longer) and the
for the play selector has plenty of tension. The playbook has the
previous owner's name written on the front. I would grade the game 6-7
on a 10
scale (see condition guide below).
The game box is in VERY
GOOD-EXCELLENT condition. The colors are nice and bright. There are 2
small tears in the cover of the white box bottom where it appears some
tape was torn off (the tape remains affixed to the 2 long aprons). The
box bottom also has a few creases from stacking. Otherwise
the box is in great shape with no stains or writing. One split
corner. I would grade
it 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.
