Radio Baseball Game
Toy Creations released a
series of games in it's OFFICIAL RADIO line. These were designed to be
played along with a live game being broadcast over the radio. There are
also rules to play the game on it's own without the radio. There is a
tote board on which the players hang the cardboard team names and
line-up cards and then keep track of the game by hanging numbers on the
scoreboard just like they did at the ball park.
The game parts are in VERY
GOOD condition. The game includes teams tags for all 16 of the major
league teams, 20 number tags, line-up cards (all used), a spinner, 4
red baserunner pawns, 4 blue baserunner pawns and some scorecards (all
used). The game has been played so it does show wear from normal use
but it was not abused and considering the age of this game I'd say it's
held up very well. Overall I would grade the game parts 6-7 on a 10
scale (see condition guide below).
The game box is in
GOOD-VERY GOOD condition. All 4 corners were mended with clear tape.
The box bottom is badly caved in. There are a few paint spots on the
lid. I would grade it a 4-5 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.
