This is my favorite vintage baseball handheld.

Loved the sci-fi aesthetics of Coleco's handheld designs, in those days.

 

Never had the pleasure with this one, but really enjoyed the Football ones my cousins had (different ones, at different houses - same reaction from my part).

 

We say kids today never look up from their phones while texting madly with their thumbs.

You could've seen us back then displaying the same behavior with these portable fun machines.

I had this and compared to Mattel handheld baseball it was crappy. The only redeeming factor was the head to head aspect. This is just my opinion but I was thoroughly disappointed in h2h baseball.

I think I'm biased, but I think most of the Coleco handhelds were < the Mattel versions.
