Condition is pleasing with light to moderate wear, however the "ball" which was intended to slide across the raised bar over the gridiron, is broken in half, but appears to repairable. Accompanying is a box lid only, which shows considerable signs of attrition, including a 4" tear coming off the right edge.

1930s J&S Toys Pinch Hitter pinball game, with easel stand and instructions on the back. Framed in gleaming chrome with a sporty fiberboard playing surface, this art deco treasure is outfitted with a wind-up keyhole to the left of third base, which operates a spinning basepaths tin wheel, which revolves when one of the five included ball bearings safely reaches base. Eagerly tested by one of our in-house technicians, this nicely preserved pinball game was found to be in supremely satisfying working order. Minor wear is noted, with all details presenting handsomely. 

1935 Parker Brothers Tom Hamilton's Pigskin football board game in original factory box. Adorned with a classic box label with leatherhead ball carrier, this game comes with a folding playing surface board, which features the same label as the lid, a pad of "Chart-O-Graph" sheets, instructions card, deck of play result cards, twenty-five yellow player wood pegs, twenty-five red pegs, and a plastic football pin. The box is fairly solid, with moderate and soiling, and the components are all in excellent condition.

The one large disc pops the three smaller discs from a tabletop up onto the slotted cardboard playing field. Also included are ten red pegs, intended for scoring on the board at the bottom left corner. Most of the scoring holes are unpunched, suggesting this game was never used. The box is solid with light wear and moderate soiling, and the field and playing pieces are pristine. 

1937 Whitman/A.E. Gustafson Big League Baseball Game with original factory box. The box is solid and pleasing, with bold colors and light-to-moderate wear, including a tape repair on the bottom left corner of the lid.
