I've started selling some of my toys & collectibles.
The Sandlot Slugger game by Milton Bradley is a great example of the big hands on games from the late 1960s. Ingenious, the batter, "Slugging Sam" is spring loaded and hits the ball with the press of a button on his foot. The object of the game is to score the most runs (obviously) by hitting the ball so that your opponent cannot catch it. Each time your opponent catches the ball it is an out, each time he or she misses and the runners advance the number of bases that were spun on the spinner. The base of Sam swivels to allow you to aim the ball and the tee that holds it can be positioned at varying heights. I remember this game from my youth. It was one of my favorites. Item number 4840, dated 1968.
The box lid for the game has very nice graphics and mine is split on one corner but is in overall good shape. The game pieces are packaged with their original box inserts and include three stand up cutout base runners, the game board, the tee and ball, and of course Sam.
