Every once in a while we will grab an item from our collection and showcase it with video. This post features Mattel’s Football game – a product near to our heart. We fondly remember getting the game as a holiday gift, ripping it out of the box, playing it, and figuring out the defense by that morning.
Originally released in 1977, the game was originally shelved by Sears, its distributor, due to low sales. They noticed that sales bumped a bit, re-released it, and sold millions of units.
The same game was actually re-issued in 2000 as an exact replica – and is even now offered as an app on the iPhone.
If you ever happen to stop by MuMoH and you want to challange us to a game of Football – you’re on!
