Please read the Description below Thoroughly. Here for sale is a Almost. Vintage 1981 Grandstand 1st Edition (Red Font).
VFD Tabletop electronic game in. I sincerely doubt you will find another one in this condition on E-Bay any time soon, the actual Game itself looks like it has had very little use & is extremely rare in such superb condition. The VFD (Vacuum Fluorescent Display) is Super-Bright which indicates lack of use/hardly been used. Also the Joystick & "Fire Button" are extremely tight(like stiff) which also indicates it probably has never been used, and to top that off, the underside of the game unit has very little surface wear which would indicate it has not been placed on any surfaces and played with.
This is TRULY a Unique opportunity to grab a Superior Example of this timeless classic!!! F ully Tested, P rofessionally Serviced.

VFD / LED / LCD. Games currently for sale, there is bound to be something of interest to You! This game console has been cleaned b y myself prior to sale (as has my entire game collection) to ensure it reaches you in the cleanest possible aesthetic condition, from a good outer clean to diminish any surface dirt/grime & stains followed by a surface polish/buffing to bring out the best sheen possible. It is then finished with the display screen getting a good clean & polish and finally a lacquer applied (this does not mean it will look like new by any means, more just that the years of built up dirt/grime/grease have been diminished/partly removed and the pictures will always form a better understanding of the games condition).
Many of my games have also had the entire games control system deep cleaned & serviced to ensure maximum re-playability (where applicable/possible) and improve general responsiveness. This game also comes from a Smoke and Pet free home.
This game is in a superb (like new) all-round working state has been thoroughly tested and no faults whatsoever have been found. Controls are like new and extremely responsive/firm, graphics are super bright (like new) and the sound is loud & clear. Battery bay is spotless and the battery terminals are as new. Item has been tested on both batteries and a Grandstand AC Adapter and found to be working as intended.
Aesthetically the condition of the game is superior/almost mint. The "Display Screen" is in superb condition with only a few very minor surface marks/scratches (which you do not notice whilst playing). The printing around the bevel is in pristine unmarked condition.Also the white lettering across the Controls section is pristine with no noticeable wear/tear whatsoever. There will be slight marks/scratches across the screen/casing here or there from prior usage but this is to be expected on most used vintage games of this age. To see the exact item you shall receive. Item requires 4 x (C/R14) Size Batteries (which are not included in this sale) or an AC mains adapter (also not included). Ensure you check the Voltage & Polarity of the tip you connect is 100% right/correct before using any AC Adapter. If you are not certain, then I would advise to simply use batteries. Do not under any circumstances use AC Adapters from Laptops/Mobile Phones/Other Random Hardware as they will very likely damage the unit! The box is included and is also in very good overall cosmetic condition with all flaps intact.
There are no major rips/tears across the box. Minor surface wear/tear is clearly present across the box with some wear/tear/crushing/creasing on corners/edges is also evident.
