"preserving the buzzzzz…" The National ELECTRIC FOOTBALL Game Museum is dedicated to preseving the history of the game, the memories of the generation who grew up playing the game and the innovations in technology that have allowed this game to endure into the 21st century.
This is a collection of teams, stock factory painted and custom painted. In 1967, with the acquisition of the NFL License, Tudor Metal Products began producing NFL and AFL teams in “Official Team Color” uniforms. This continued with Miggle Toys who also added a selection of college teams. Many players of the game opted to paint their own teams adding high school, fantasy and defunct league teams to their collections.
The following is the personal collection of Museum Founder and Curator, Chris LeMay. All custom teams are hand painted by Chris LeMay.
The Following are miscellaneous teams created by repainting figures from Miggle’s pre-painted “Fab 5” figures.
The following “Fab 5” teams are created from repainted Miggle 67 Bg men pre-painted figures. They represent certain past historical professional teams.
The following were used in a 10 team solitaire league recreating the 1933 – 1939 era of the NFL. They were created using repainted Miggle regular size “Fab 5” figures.
The following are more repainted Miggle 67 Big Men used in one of my Solitaire Leagues. They represent “throwback” uniforms modeled after early 1900’s uniforms typically worn during the period of 1900 – 1910.
Two NFL exhibition games played in Nashville, TN were the inspiration for creating the following teams. The first features the Pittsburgh Steelers and the St Louis Cardinals. The game was played at Vanderbilt’s Dudley Field on August 26,1967. It was the first NFL game I was able to attend at the age of 10 and was won by Pittsburgh 24 to 13.
In doing some research, I found another game that was played in Nashville at the same venue 2 years prior. The Bears won this game over the Rams 28 to 14
All four teams are repainted Miggle “Fab 5” 67 Big Men Figures.
