From the Author


Praise For Full Color Electric Football

More than a nostalgic nod to a much loved game, Full Color Electric Football deftly documents the rise of pro football, the equally innovative (and competitive ) path of iconic toy companies like Tudor, whose evolution changed their game as much as, say, the no huddle offense shifted the NFL's gears. I have been playing electric football since I was four (I'm now 59), and am proud to say my late brother and I convinced our folks to put more than a few of the Incarnations of the game beneath our Christmas tree. Even so, I learned a lot about that which took place in the companies' respective "huddles."

These stories are recounted by the authors in a brisk, informative fashion. (Think of your favorite team's offense when it's clicking.) You don't have to be a dyed-in-the-wool fan of this game to enjoy it. Three of my best friends proved this the other day. Trust me - you'll return to this book again and again.

-- Reuben Jackson, author, poet, Host of Vermont Public Radio's Friday Night Jazz, former Curator of the Duke Ellington Collection at the Smithsonian in Washington, DC



I can't say enough about this book and what joy it brings to me as I look through the beautiful photographs of fields, teams, box artwork and ads that not only trace the game of electric football but the history of football itself! The artwork on the old fields pictured in the book not only capture the game, but the outside frame of the field from each new year expressed the artwork of those times. The photos in Full Color Electric Football show brilliantly all the beauty of these games and bring back memories not only of the electric football game I had as a child, but memories from watching the NFL on TV throughout the years and all the exciting unforgettable games that were played. Electric football allowed me to replay those games on my living room floor and gave me the chance to keep my heroes playing long past their actual retirements.

Full Color Electric Football is nostalgic, beautiful, memorable and interspersed with historical facts about electric football as well as the history of professional football. This books real beauty though, isn't necessarily what's on its pages, but its what those pages bring back to life from your memory. Times with friends and family, great games, losses, wins, forgotten hobbies, life events and simpler times. If you had the game as a kid or if you didn't and are a football fan you will want this book close at hand and I guarantee you will find your smile growing with every turn of the page!


-- Lynn Schmidt, Electric Football "Coach" since 1968, National Administrator for the Miniature Football Coaches Association


If there was such a thing as an Electric Football Hall of Fame,  Full Color Electric Football would serve perfectly as the Hall's virtual tour guide. The photos are beautiful and they capture the essence of so many baby boomers' Christmases and childhoods.

-- Greg Eno, Independent Journalist


About the Author


Earl Shores and Roddy Garcia have chased the story of Electric Football for more than two decades. During that time they authored numerous articles about the electric football for publications ranging from the Beckett Football Monthly to Toy Shop, and have been interviewed by print and video media on both the national and local level.

With the help of Marvel designer Michael Kronenberg, Shores and Garcia published the The Unforgettable Buzz: The History of Electric Football and Tudor Games in 2013. This first book ever published on the topic of Electric Football received great acclaim, even being used in the classroom at the University of Central Florida.

Full Color Electric Football
marks the second offering from the Shores, Garcia, Kronenberg writing and design team. It was a natural offshoot from the narrative-based Buzz, with an all-photo format that fully takes advantage of Michael Kronenberg's extraordinary design skills.
