Vintage original Coleco Frogger tabletop from 1982 in stunning museum quality condition. As the creators of the now almost-20-year-old website www.miniarcade.com we can comfortably say this is the nicest Coleco Frogger we've ever seen.
We don't believe in condition-10 perfection but this is pretty close, here are the negatives we could find... The first is actually not a condition issue, but rather a factory misprint error - if you look at the front and side of box ("Sega" logo and by the kid at the arcade machine) you can see what looks like vertical white tire marks. (ironic since Frogger does often get run over by cars) The printing machines were wonky that day so this is technically a "pattern variant" not damage because you could potentially find other Coleco tabletop boxes released with the same type of white tire-squish misprint.
You have to look pretty hard to find other issues, for instance in the 4th photo you can see the back of box near top flap has just the slightest amount of "bulge" curve. The front of box near the game screen has a small (less than 1-inch) break to the outer layer of cardboard graphics probably caused by a price sticker removal but its barely noticeable. The corners and edges have only the slightest traces of wear.
No yellowing to the box - is super crisp and clean. No smoke or musty smell. No handwriting. No tape or stickers except the original factory tape. No moisture or water stains. Most importantly no rips or tears to the box from being opened by that over-eager 10 year old on Christmas morning. It has shiny surfaces, a tight rectangular shape, even the green box bottom is pristine. Inside the box its obvious the game was never handled by the owner. The instructions booklet, t-shirt offer, and Coleco catalog are inside the original plastic baggie with folded over top flap just like new. The styrofoam is amazing and bright white with none broken, and the game is contained in the original plastic baggie. The game is unplayed and new, we tested it very carefully to make sure it still works great.
The Coleco Frogger mini arcade tabletop is probably the most popular, desirable, and recognizable of all the golden-age 1980s portable electronic video games. Even the smaller Excalibur reproduction tabletops that were made in the 1990s are still popular and can sell in a heartbeat. Add to that the insane collector condition of this one and you've got an epic tabletop game. We've owned it for years and its the only one we found (not now nor ever did we have more in this condition).
Item will be packaged *very* carefully with many layers of protection in a big, insured, signature-required package.
