    "ALPHA" FOOTBALL GAME. Among the hobby's more obscure parlor diversions is this "Alpha" Football Game.  The name suggests that it's the first of the genre, and though this one may be regarded 'vintage,' it likely dates only to the early '40's.  The play board is elevated by wooden shims -- one of which has imposed moderate damage to the playing field.  Its design is composed of spinners situated below the surface, and the only loose accessory is the directions sheet.  The box measures 12 1/2" x 19" x 1", and the aforementioned shim damage has also mildly penetrated the lid, howsoever inconspicuously.  There appears to be no other meaningful qualification to the condition, and we adjudge this unit as technically VG, but projecting in apparent stronger condition.  Additional shipping cost may apply.
