Full Color Electric Football™ was a labor love. It was all about putting together Electric Football images that we love, images that were inspired by our memories of that first Tudor NFL (or AFL) Electric Football game; our first sighting of a Tudor Super Bowl in a Sears Christmas Wish Book; that first peak at a lineup of NFL and AFL teams in a Lee Payne-designed color Rule Book insert.
These are all moments that, decades later, we still cherish. They link to some of the best moments of our childhood, combining the wonder and innocence of a time when things were simple. When a new NFL team came in the mail, or a new Electric Football game showed up under the Christmas tree…life was good. Very good. You had everything you needed. Period.
That’s how we felt when got the first copies of Full Color Electric Football. Leafing through the pages, especially pages like the beautiful AFL spread included in this post, it was a dream come true. We felt like a giant box containing every Tudor NFL team had been delivered to our doorstep.
And we sincerely hope you’ll share our dream when you have a chance to check out Full Color Electric Football. It’s totally from the heart. We tried to honor this wonderful game as it deserves to be honored – in full color.
