Summary Good

Assessor Samanta Pugh

Notes The box lid is being supported by an additional carboard piece. There is a lot of tape on the lid to hold it together both orange and blue. Also some clear tape on the base of the box. The table tennis balls are no longer white, they are a tanish yellow color now. The net holders are in good condition, they can stil be used properly. The net is also discolored, dirty and smells. The rackets are worn on the edges and have some discoloration on their faces. The bottom of the box is worn out on the corners and on the bottom there is also some more discoloration. The label is now not so visable as it could be. The lid is very worn out, the artwork is wearing off and chipping off. The sides are worn away a lot.
