The history of electric football is much more than the histories of the manufacturers and the products they made, it is also the memories and stories of the people who play the game.
Recently Patrick Morris posted pics of some of his name tags that he had saved from participating in the Winterfest Tournaments and Buzzball World Championships hosted by George Diamand and held in Harrisburg, PA during the early 2000’s. I asked Patrick if he would consider donating these to the musem. He agreed and also asked if I would like to have his trophy from winning the 2003 Buzzball World Championship. “Absouletly!!” This week I received these “artifacts” to add to the collections of the museum. Thanks so much to Patrick for the very generous donation. It is very much appreciated.
Here are some other pics posted by Philly NEFL on the Miniature Football Coaches Association FB Page.
“A couple more photos from the 2007 Buzzfest tournament held in Harrisburg Pennsylvania. Always amazed the F.O.T.H. how the coaches from MD could get to H-burg quicker than the Philly coaches.
Would love to see a tourney….TOC or a Buzzball or something come back to this area. It was so centrally located. Some of the best times were had at these tourneys. A lot of guys couldn’t make the travel to the Miggle events so George set these tourneys up as an alternative.”

Hello, I was asked awhile back if I could send pics of the CFL Coleco Electric Football Game from early 70s. Let me know if this is good if not I can send again another way.
The best way would be to send them to our email: email@example.com
