What Is The Electric Football Wishbook?
Was there anything better than finding the Sears or Montgomery Ward Christmas catalog on your doorstep? The Christmas shopping season was officially underway. It was time to make your list. You knew you’d been “good,” so you pored over the toy section like a rookie with his first NFL playbook. Every item and game had to be analyzed and evaluated. The Electric Football Wishbook — the first ever compilation of Electric Football and sports game Christmas catalog pages — takes you back to that time.
An Electric Football “Dream Catcher”
Packed with more than 70 full page and full color catalog images from the years 1955 to 1988, the Wishbook is a comprehensive chronicle of Electric Football’s “Golden Age.” All of the major retailers are included — Sears, Montgomery Ward, J.C. Penney, Alden’s, and more. So that means it’s Christmas morning over, and over, and over. And over.
Games, Games, Games – And Not Just Football!
More than 140 Electric Football games are pictured in the Wishbook. So you’ll never tire of turning its pages because it seems like there’s always a new game to discover. In addition, there are all types of hockey, baseball, and basketball games throughout its pages. As a result, the Wishbook is the most complete collection of sports games ever published. It’s a sports fan dream come true!
The Ultimate Electric Football Game Reference Guide
The Wishbook comes with a full “Game Index” in the back. In it you’ll find the year, make, and model number of every single Electric Football game featured on its pages. This is a major landmark because its first time we’ve created a true reference guide format in one of our books. Identifying an Electric Football game has never been so easy!
The Electric Football Wishbook is the third book from Earl Shores, Roddy Garcia, and Michael Kronenberg. It completes an Electric Football trilogy that was five years in the making, and includes The Unforgettable Buzz (2013) and Full Color Electric Football (2015). The three books comprise a “toy story” that is unrivaled.
