Description of Doll for Sale

I am pleased to present a pristine original boxed outfit for Mattel's Ken Doll.  The outfit is titled "Time For Tennis" and is outfit #790.  The outfit was first released in 1962 but based on the package and the factory tag with the number 0790 this one was shipped in 1964 making it 52 years old. The outfit is in mint condition and has never been removed from the box (NRFB).  All of the original string ties are still intact holding all the pieces in place.  It includes all the pieces with the tennis balls, tennis racket, sun glasses, shirt, shorts, shoes, socks and sweater.  There is also a Barbie booklet and there should be the rules of tennis booklet under the sweater.  I can't see the rules book but I have to assume it is there and I am not going to open the box to confirm this. 

The box has the original factory sticker with the model number and an original price sticker for $5.99.  The box measures 8 1/2 by 11 1/2 inches.

The sweater has the typical early TM Mattel Ken tag from the early 1960's as shown.  The factory tag on the box has the leading zero in the number indicating it was released for sale in 1964. 

Condition of Doll for Sale

As I said the box has never been opened and the cello is intact.  There are no repairs or tape on the box.  One side has been pushed down with a small tear in the corner.  (see pictures) You can click the pictures to see close-ups of the condition.


Other than the one corner damage the rest of the box in in near mint condition.  There are no stains or wear to the printing. 

This is an antique doll that will have some wear and imperfections expected in an antique or vintage doll.  I make every effort to describe all significant flaws in my descriptions and show them in the pictures.  Please read the description fully and examine all the pictures to be sure you understand the condition of the doll.  The pictures can be enlarged to show the doll in great detail.  If you have any questions or would like any additional information on this doll please email me and I will be glad to answer your question.  California residents are responsible for California Sales tax in addition to the purchase price shown.
