TUDOR tru-action
ELECTRIC FOOTBALL GAME
1961 edition


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 one of the earlier pre NFL-endorsed versions of the game.  It was the first version to include 3D players with varied poses.  

tudor electric football game field

The field is in EXCELLENT-NEAR MINT condition.  Shows very little use.  A few very hairline scratches and other minor flaws and one barely visible dent.  None of these will affect your ability to play the game.  There is no rust visible on the top of the field (there is small rust spot visible on the underside of the game.  Overall I would grade the field 8-9 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).  

   

The game parts are in VERY GOOD-EXCELLENT condition.  The players are all intact except for some missing their number decals.  The the quarterback/kicker is fully functional.  Goal posts have some bends.  Downs marker a few minor paint scuffs from sliding the arrow back and forth but otherwise good shape.  The parts storage box is included and in nice shape with no staining or splits.  The set is missing the instructions but I think we all know how to play this game.  It also includes one original football.   Overall I would grade the game parts 6-7 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).  







tudor electric football game box

The box is in VERY GOOD condition.  It has some soiling and 2 split corners.  Otherwise good shape with no writing and no holes.  Much better condition than you typically find these in.  Overall I would grade the box 6 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).

CONDITION GUIDE: 

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.
