That's right ladies
and gentlemen, Mattel has re-released the late 70's
Mattel line of hand held sports games that many of us
played well into the 80's. Football is just as you
remember it, dashed lines and all. We bought this
as soon as it was released.
Of course they
wouldn't release Football without Baseball, so Mattel
re-released this late 70's hand held as a perfect
replica of the original. Triple plays, home runs,
strike outs, it is all here, just as you remember it.
It's simplicity makes it a novelty, a real gem.
Football, Baseball, and of course
Basketball was part of the Mattel re-release. Good
thing about these re-releases is they run off of AA
batteries instead of the high dollar 9-Volt like they
did in the 1970's. Add this version to your
collection! Original version? It's there as
re-released a few of their hand helds, word has it
Mattel soccer was on the list, but eventually made its
way to the chopping block. Never fear, you can
still get this vintage hand held on eBay, as well as
practically every vintage hand held ever produced.
Yep, the original version is right there too.
