Game On: Electric Football
The inventor of electric football, Norman Sas, took over his father's company at the ripe old age of 24. Tudor Metal Products was a depression-era toy company that produced electric horse race games, walkie-talkies, and budget banks.
Norman invented the game in 1949 and turned Tudor's fortunes around. As humble as he was successful, Norman reflected the "good as your handshake" way of business in America at the time.
In the early 1960s, the NFL wanted Norman and electric football to join them. But surprisingly Norman said 'no.' He was doing very well without the fledgling league. However, he changed his mind a few years later and electric football became NFL Properties' main revenue source. accounting for 35% of NFLP revenues.
