Parker Brothers Game - #A-62

English/French edition


CAREERS has been a favorite of game lovers ever since it first appeared in 1957.  Now it has a bright, new board and some new career choices, like Ecology, which reflects the world of the 1970s.


Each player writes his own success formula in amounts of Fame, Money and Happiness and then tries to be the first to accomplish his objective.  You'll need a little luck and some shrewd decisions to win but, when or lose, CAREERS is fun for everyone.


We purchased this game while in Canada and it has instructions in both English and French (All the game cards are in English). 


Everything is in excellent to MINT condition.  ALL PIECES ARE INCLUDED.  We have placed the pieces and cards into polybags to protect them.  NO DAMAGING RUBBER BANDS ARE USED.  The game box does have some minor wear and a couple of small water spots but NO rips, dents and pristine corners.  For a game that is 40 years old, it is in great condition and is playable. (see pictures to view condition). 


We bought this game for our children and then introduced it to our grandchildren (when we can pull them away from their electronic games!).  We took care of the games and enforced that they be put away correctly.  Now you can have this incredible game.


See pictures for more detail on condition.  Stored in a pet free and smoke free home.

Seller’s Ratings

Thank you for providing Seller’s Ratings. As a Seller, we strive for a Seller’s Rating of ALL 5s. There are 4 categories:

Item as described: How accurate was the item description?

Communication: How satisfied were you with the seller's communication?

Shipping Time: How quickly did the seller ship the item?

Shipping and Handling Charges: How reasonable were the shipping and handling charges?


We provide our customers with the convenience to buy one inexpensive item such as a pin or patch or key chain. The shipping and handling on one inexpensive item might seem exorbitant.


For example, shipping and handling charges of $2.97 on a $3 item might seem excessive, but they are standard US Post Office First Class Large Envelope Mail rates. Additionally, we add US Post Office Special Handling to protect the merchandise from damage by the automatic sorting machines used by the US Post Office. When non-flat items such as pins, key chains, etc. are mailed, these machines will burst the envelope open and your merchandise will be lost or damaged. Therefore we use Large Envelope Special Handling to protect your order.


Unfortunately, we get downgraded on the Seller’s Rating for shipping and handling charges because of the shipping cost compared to the item cost. Before downgrading us because of shipping costs, we ask you to consider:

· the service we are providing,

· that we protect your shipment with professional packaging,

· and that we use US Post Office Special Handling rates.

Please remember that it costs the same to mail a 2 ounce key chain costing $3 as it does to mail 2 ounces of gold worth thousands of dollars!


We hope you find our buying experience ALL 5s!

If not, please contact us,

we will do what we can to satisfy.





How do you ship?

We use US Postal Service and can ship to post office boxes. We use First Class Large Envelope Mail with Special Handling, Priority Mail and Express Mail. Your item will be professionally packaged to protect the merchandise. Our smaller items are shipped as "Thick Envelope or Package" which provides special handling by the Post Office. The US Postal Service normally will process your envelope via automated sorting machines. These machines can damage the merchandise or the envelope will burst and the merchandise will be lost. Therefore we pack your item securely, and we mark the envelope for special, non-machine handling. This special handling is a little more expensive than regular First Class.


How much will shipping cost to my location?

There is a shipping calculator located in each listing. You will be able to confirm the charge to ship the item to your location (including the packaging & handling charge) via First Class Mail with Special Handling, Priority Mail or Express Mail. All shipping is calculated by eBay to provide you with current and accurate rates and protects you from exorbitant shipping costs. We charge a nominal handling fee to cover the cost of the envelope or box and the bubble-pack and other packing material used to protect these delicate products. It is included in the shipping quote through the eBay calculator.


What if I order more than one item?

Combine your items for the best shipping and handling. The eBay shipping calculator should calculate multi-item discounts on the postage. However, we suggest that you request an invoice or final price and we will calculate the best postage and reduce the handling fee to provide you with the best shipping and handling price.




How long will it take for you to process my order?

Once payment has been received, we will process your order usually the next business day. However, from time to time processing may take longer. Please check our store banner for any special circumstances such as holidays or snow storms that might delay shipping. We ship only to the official PayPal address.


Do you have my item in stock?

WE ARE A REAL STORE AND HAVE EVERYTHING IN STOCK. We do not order from a supplier when you order from us as some other vendors do. However, while rare, there could be an inventory miscount. We will immediately refund all charges.


How long will it take for my order to arrive?

Once we ship your item it can take anywhere from 2-7 business days to arrive via ground service. We are located in Brooklyn, New York, so the farther you are away from us, the longer it can take to be delivered. We do offer Express Mail if you need overnight delivery. However, the Post Office does not provide overnight to every location in the US. International shipping is unpredictable and could take up to 8 weeks.


How do I find out where my package is?

As many of our items are inexpensive, $3 to $5, using a service with tracking is prohibitively expensive. We use US Post Office First Class Mail which is very reliable and relatively inexpensive. If you are buying one of our more expensive items, such as a collectable, we will provide the tracking number. When the Post Office requires a signature, your package might have to be picked up from your local Post Office. Please check with your local Post Office for their hours of operation.


What do I do if my package does not arrive?

Please allow up to 7 days for delivery. While the US Post Office is very reliable, mail does occasionally get misdirected.


Contact us BEFORE negative feedback or opening a buyer problem and we will work with you to get your item to you. We have 100% positive feedback because we take care of our customers.


Can I pick up my order directly?

We are not set up for local pick up. Sorry.


Do you ship internationally?

Yes, we do ship internationally to most destinations as allowed by postal regulations. International packages may have customs fees, import duties and/or taxes that are not included in the item price or shipping price and are the responsibility of the buyer. Please check with your country’s customs office to determine what these additional costs may be prior to buying. These charges are normally collected by the delivering freight (shipping) company or when you pick the item up – do not confuse them for additional shipping charges. We do not mark merchandise values below value or mark items as "gifts" - US and International government regulations prohibit such behavior.




We accept Paypal. You can pay securely from your Paypal balance, via e-check, or with your Visa or Master Card through PayPal. Please complete your payment no later than two (2) days after the sale has been completed. Orders paid by e-check will be shipped when PayPal confirms that your e-check has cleared. Contact us if you wish to use other methods of payment.



Sales Tax

We are a licensed and registered enterprise in New York City in the State of New York; therefore NY residents please note that sales tax will be added to your invoice. Please remember that we DO NOT CHARGE sales tax, we DO NOT MAKE ANY MONEY on sales tax and we only collect it on behalf of the New York State government.



Satisfaction guaranteed

Returns accepted if not satisfied. Returns must be within 7 days. Purchase price will be refunded (not including shipping and handling). Return shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. All products are inspected before shipping. Defective or damaged products are never shipped without buyer’s permission.




Dr Vex (which is short for vexillology, the study of flags) is a major flag dealer in New York City. We carry small flags (4 inch by 6 inch) and large flags (3 foot by 5 foot). We expanded our store inventory to include novelty flag items such as flag stickers, flag pins and flag key chains. Then we expanded to non-flag items such as Looney Tunes and Mario Brothers stickers, 7-UP key chains, etc. Finally, we added a large collectables lineup of Barbie dolls, AVON dolls, Burger King and McDonald toys, World Trade Center items and many, many others.


Dr. Vex has for over 3 decades sold primarily through major international events at the Javits Center in New York and the International Center in Boston. We are a major vendor throughout the North East attending collectables shows, international fairs and exhibitions, and other cultural events.


We are proud to join the eBay family and welcome you as a customer.
