Are you ready for this. In the early 1980's a little German toy store in Michigan called "Der Hampleman" 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 unit 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 some of the rarest of the rare in this unused 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 Officially reconditioned Electronic Game. Still sealed with original tape.
The Mattel Football "Reconditioned" Units are units that had been. Sent back to Mattel for some reason, and Mattel made them work again. It is said that these are VERY RARE because the box is a special printed box that says "Reconditioned Game". Only 1 out of 250 Mattel Footballs got reconditioned.
It is printed right on the box and not a sticker. The HD photos are 99% of the description. The box has a couple small flaws as you can see in the photos.
It does not get any better than this. 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 and can not be tested. The value of this is that this is still sealed. If you open up this game and play it you have ruined the value to many collectors. 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.
