Tudor has been manufacturing it's electric football games since the 1940's. Starting in the mid-1960's Tudor began selling games that included official NFL teams. The game underwent many changes over the years. When one considers the variations in artwork, board size and game components there are in excess of 100 different editions of the game itself . Additional teams could also be purchased separately in both home and road uniforms and in the 40 years that they were produced Tudor (and later Miggle) issued well over 500 different teams.
This is the box and board from the Super Bowl 5 edition. Starting with Super Bowl II Tudor (and later Miggle) issued a new version of this game every season featuring the teams that played in the previous season's Super Bowl. The first 4 games actually featured unique boards and are highly collectible. Probably the most sought after is the Chiefs/Vikings board with the team logos at the 50 yard line.
This listing is for just the field
and the box. No other parts are included. This is
from Super Bowl 5 (Cowboys vs. Colts) and it was the only year that
Tudor produced this particular design.
The field is in GOOD condition. No major flaws but far from perfect. Lots of tiny pock marks that have the beginnings of rust (see pic below). The motor and switch work fine. The field surface would need some touching up. It would make a pretty good display piece. Overall I would grade the field 4 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).
The box is in VERY GOOD
condition. Some typical shelf wear but still perfectly
useable. Top flap has tears but is mostly intact.
grade the box 6 on a 10 scale (see
condition guide below).
MINT (10): I will only give this grade to brand new, unused items. NEAR MINT (9): Shows virtually no use. Seldom if ever played. Perhaps some very light handling creases to the instructions or other minor flaws with the game parts. Boxes will have only the slightest hint of shelf wear. EXCELLENT (7-8): The game has seen some use but it was obviously well taken care of. Game parts might have some light handling creases or other signs of careful use. Board might have just a hint of color loss or dented corners. Boxes will have light rubbing to the artwork or perhaps some minor dishing or a very light stain. VERY GOOD (5-6): The game was not especially well cared for but it still has faired pretty well. Game parts will show obvious use but nothing will be torn, badly stained or have any serious damage. Box may have some rubbing, light staining, dishing, 1 or 2 neatly split corners, minor writing and/or a few pieces of tape. No major structural damage and artwork will still be generally attractive. GOOD (3-4): Obviously no care was taken with the game but it is still playable as is. Game parts show considerable use but the game is complete with all parts in usable condition. Box may have staining, writing, split corners, dishing and/or other structural damage but it will be intact and still usable. POOR (1-2): Only suitable to fill a space in your collection. Game will be missing parts (these will be noted). Box will have serious damage and may be missing aprons or badly torn.
