Default 1971 Super Bowl Item I cannot figure out

It is a booklet, roughly 5 x 7. Front and back scans:



It recaps the prior SBs. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Edit -

Ok, just by dumb luck I think I got this. lol

I photo matched to a removed eBay listing calling the book "Football Digest 1971 Tudor Electric FB Special Super Bowl Edition". Some more googling later I found the gold -



This is the ad for the 1971 Tudor Super Bowl Electric edition at top. If you read the small caption under the photo it states - "Includes an exciting 24-page history of all 5 Super Bowls"

So, I think you have the included Super Bowl History from a 1971 Sears Edition Tudor Super Bowl Electric Football game.

I love researching but that was a toughie.

That's it! Thanks.

I had that game, the non SB version. Worst game ever. Spend a ton of time setting up, turn it on and the players just sort of shimmied every which way across the board, no game at all, really.

I got this game Christmas 1971. 49ers vs the Browns. Players kept locking arms ans square dancing. As soon as a player would break away and run for an apparent touchdown he would pull a Jim Marshall and turn and run the wrong way. I ended up playing this game by hand.

Sounds about right. When you found one with the little tabs at the bottom that were properly aligned, you marked it and you ended up placing the ball with that one every play. Very quickly gave way to Hot Wheels--at least those went where they were supposed to go most of the time.

I also found a cadaco brochure advertising its electrical sports games. At some point, I have to pull together an auction lot of all these oddball items.

I had that game too, either the same Christmas or the one prior. It wasn't the Sears version though and can't remember if it had the AFC- NFC end zones or AFL-NFL, but I did have the Colts and Cowboys hand-painted players. You could also order just players from other teams and I had the Chiefs and Vikings, which is why I can't recall which year I got mine.

You guys are spot on on how ineffective/unrealistic the plays developed and how frustrating it was to watch someone occasionally get into the clear only to turn around or veer straight out of bounds. Sometimes a player's own teammates would box him in and push him backwards. And I remember the kickers and QBs had some worthlessly-fangled way of throwing or kicking these little cotton oval footballs.

Like Adam, my attention turned to Hot Wheels, especially once they got the Turbo-chargers. Before that, does anyone remember Major Matt Mason?

Edited to add: I guess they were called Super Chargers, not Turbo Chargers, per a google search

You all are electric football rookies, LOL. We had our players fine-tuned to run whichever way we wanted and got very good at passing the little felt balls for big gains.

Electric football rocks, I'm sorry ...
