History of Tudor Games - Written by Earl Shores
Electric Football's ancestry can be traced back to 1929, when Elmer Sas incorporated Tudor Metal Products in New York City. The company survived the Depression through the popularity of its Budget Bank, which Elmer created. In the late 40's, Elmer's son Norman became president of Tudor, and invented the toy we all know and love - - Electric Football.
Those early No. 500 Electric Football models look crude to the modern eye - - but, just for a second, imagine being a child on Christmas morning in 1949. No spinners, no dice, no cards to flip over. . . just turn on the game and watch your players run - - all by themselves!
Electric Football was an immediate hit, captivating boys' imaginations like few toys ever had. Tudor produced the first all-plastic 3-D men in 1958. In the early 60's, industrial designer Lee Payne was showing Norman Sas a set of player prototypes whose realism would change Electric Football forever. Tudor introduced these players on its first large game, the 1962 #600 model.
