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 was the first model put out by Tudor that used official NFL teams. There are 2 different editions of this particular game. One from 1967 and one from 1969. The 1967 edition has "Big Men" teams while the 1969 edition has "Hog Leg" teams. There are also differences in the team logos displayed on the scoreboard. This particular copy is the 1969 edition.
The field is in EXCELLENT condition. There is no rust and there are no dents. There was some mildew spotting on the game when I acquired it. I managed to clean most of this off but if you look at the game in strong light you can see where the mildew spots were. There are also a few hairline scratches. None of this will affect game play. I have tested the motor and it works well. Overall I would grade the field 7 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).
The game parts are in EXCELLENT condition. All the original game parts are here including 3 of the 6 original felt footballs. Some of the sheets have been torn out of the instructions booklet but all are included. The scoreboard is in great shape and includes all its dials plus 13 of the 16 team name inserts. Overall I would grade the game parts 7-8 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).
The teams are in VERY GOOD-EXCELLENT condition. There are no players with broken limbs, no repairs, no touch-ups and no leaners. The Packers team are of the "Amber" variety. The paint on these has worn off a bit on their backs but nothing too serious. All players have their original Hog Leg era bases. Overall I would grade the teams 6-7 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).
The box is in VERY GOOD
condition. It has 4 split corners (2 of which were mended
with clear tape) and some scuffing on the edges and corners but on the
whole is still in pretty good shape. No holes, no stains or
writing. There is scribbling on the inside of the box.
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.
