Could be on of the problems. But it is more likely due to overall ware and tare from age. Before I replaced my shifter, it had 270k on it. It felt like I could shift again after I had already shifted.

Was this amount of play in each gear before you replaced the shifter? It doesnt sound like its your transmission but if it is, you will prolly wanna look at a replacement unless you can rebuild yourself.
