Gotham Electric Football

board game

ca. 1960

In the 1950s and 1960s, The Tudor company of New York led the way in realistic sports simulation board games. Their football games were extremely popular and remembered fondly by more than a few young football fans. The gentle hum of the vibrating board while the plastic teams made their plays was fascinating to watch, and the games seemed realistic and fun. Tudor's main competitor during this period was the Gotham Pressed Steel Corporation. Gotham made its own version of vibrating electric footbal games and they sold briskly too. A Rochesterian owned this particular Gotham example as a youngster. He felt the set lacked adequate goalposts, so he crafted his own to use during play.
