Declare yourself a hoops master by capturing this fantastic vintage basketball game. Presented is a 1965 Eldon Champion Games “Bob Cousy Basketball” in sealed original box with a vintage price sticker on the bottom edge. Wrapped in clear plastic, this stunning fifty-two year old play set includes a 7” Bob Cousy action figure with metal rod attached to the shooting arm, a 15” backboard with net and two basketballs, all housed in basketball half-court cardboard diorama.
The court is outfitted with two scoring wheel dials labeled “Home” and “Visitors” and an advertising card is present behind the Cousy figure and just above a printed facsimile signature. The original instructions booklet is located on the back and a 1965 copyright is printed inside the front at bottom left on the white corner panel of the octagon shaped box.
All enclosed elements are pristine, with the exception of the diagonal title banner at top left which is creased in the middle and the plastic wrap is compromised in a few very small spots on the perimeter without detracting from the overall appeal. All in all this miracle of preservation shows as like-new, with minimal traces of wear. At such a reasonably offered starting point, this one is a no-brainer.
