Are you ready for this. In the early 1980's a toy store in Michigan went out of business. All of the vintage game inventory was put in storage. It was forgot about for over 4 decades. The owners of the store passed away, and the storage locker was opened and these still new in the box games were revealed.
When they were found, many were put into hand made acrylic cases and wrapped in cloth. Others were still in their original case packs. Some are perfect, others had some storage wear. This is one of those games from this incredible find. These games are the rarest of the rare in this condition.These are for the true collector who wants to own one of the ultimate prizes in handheld gaming history. Check my other auctions for other pieces from this collection. This is the show stopper. This is the Original Mattel FOOTBALL electronic handheld game from 1978. This is the one us 70's + 80's guys had as kids... The excitement I got opening this at Christmas... Just holding this in my hands brings back that childhood feeling.. The game inside the case is amazing. Still sealed with original tape. The HD photos are 99% of the description. 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 hologram and rubber feet. This is one of the rarest quality examples of this game you may ever see. Imagine this game on your desk or in your display..
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.
