This is the show stopper. This is the Original Mattel Basketball from 1978. Just to hold this and have it in my hands is electrifying.
In all my years of collecting, I have only had one other of these in the acrylic case. The game inside the case is amazing. Original tape on the ends. It does not get any better than this. The display case looks to be custom made to the size of this game.
Has USA sticker on the bottom along with a number. This is one of the rarest quality examples of a 1978 Mattel Basketball you may ever see. Please look at photos closely this is exactly what you will receive... This is sealed inside the plastic display case and can not be tested.The value of this is that this is Brand New, still sealed in the custom acrylic case. If you open up this game and play it you have ruined the value. The acrylic cases look to be custom hand made. As I look over it, you can see some little flaws. Maybe an edge that is rough. Scuffs from age, glue marks in some areas. Photos are 99% of the description. Note: From this point on in all of my auctions, the paragraphs below are all of the same describing the "Fine Print". So once you have read it once, you can stop here so you can quickly go through and view all of my games up for sale. To get them to work even though they may have never been used. Is the nature of vintage. Make sure you have good new batteries, and make sure the battery connections are good. And make sure the batteries are in correctly. Everything will happen FAST in the United States, but please be aware. That once on its way to you outside the United States, some packages and countries take longer. This is out of my control. Note: My home is a high end smoke free and kid free home.
