Recommended Posts

Ive been doing some buying and trading the last month or two with some of my collector friends....my goal was to get all 9 of the old original tudor 1967 factory AFL teams again.....i achieved that goal and picked up a few more of the old NFL teams as well. Im going to play a 14 team tournament that will take 13 games to play. Unlike my 1969 hogleg collection that i have in both dark and white jerseys, many of my bigmen teams i only have in dark or white uniforms so if i have a matchup that really clashes i will just play the hoglegs for that game. A 14 team tournament has 2 first round byes....the dolphins and patriots were drawn out to get those byes. I'll be starting the tournament in the next couple of days and i think ill play this one on my big grass endzone 620 ( browns vs giants ) this was the game that was created by tudor in 1967 the first year tudor started making the NFL and AFL teams.

The tournament will start off with 2 of my favorite teams when i was growing up....the RAIDERS and the RAMS. it was always a treat in my youth when the 4 o'clock sunday game featured one of these 2 teams.....i figured i might as well get it over with and let them face off right off the bat and set the tone for the whole tourney....the winner will move on to face the dolphins and the loser will go back to the box until the next tourney.

Great first game for the new tournament....the first half belonged to willie ellison of the rams and cliff branch of the raiders...the score was 14 to 14 at the half.....roman gabriel of the rams mainly handed the ball to ellison for most of the game but in the 5th play of overtime he found dick bass down the seam and the rams now move on to face the dolphins.....the raiders won the championship in the last tournament but they are one and done this time around.....great players represented include : 75 deacon jones..74 merlin olsen...76 rosey grier...85 lamar lundy....87 billy truax...34 les josephson.....18 gabriel...33 ellison...and 22 bass......for the rams........great raiders from yesterday include : 12 ken stabler...00 jim otto...35 hewert dixon....44 marv hubbard...25 fred biletnekof....83 ben davidson...78 art shell...63 gene upshaw...41 phil vilapiano....55 dan conners....and 21 branch......up next will be the colts vs the cowboys.

I did have a question about the big men. Would it be possible to play big men teams against standard sized teams? Or is there an advantage for one team because of the size?

 

Also will it look weird having them play against each other? Not sure if I should stick with the standard sized figures or go with some 67 big men in future

 

thanks

All i collect is original hogleg and bigmen ...i have played games against a hog team and a bm team.... .the record in the games was 3 -3....so it has balanced out....if u look at my d cowboys in the picture....9 are bm and the 2 tes ( 12 and 89 ) are hogs because i dont have the full 11 man big set...also my white jets set is 7 bm and 4 hoglegs....so normally i try to play hogs vs hogs and bm vs bm.....but even though the big men are in fact bigger.....u can play the 2 as far as my experience goes.

Game 2

Cowboys 14 colts 6

Not a very exciting game ...kind of like when these 2 met in super bowl 5......they called that one the blunder bowl because of all the turnovers ...this one was not a good game for the bases because they changed direction a lot.....i might do a little practice run and just put widetops on all the players....the bigmen dont seem to be running well on the tweaked skill bases.....but anyway....calvin hill for the cowboys broke off 2 nice runs for scores...and raymond berry hooked up with earl morral for a nice pass play in the 2nd half.....great players from the past include : 35 hill....32 walt garrison...12 roger stauback...74 bob lilly...22 bob hayes....55 leroy jordan...54 chuck howley and 72 too tall jones for the cowboys.......the colts were represented by : 82 berry...19 john unitas.. 15 morral...32 mike curtis...78 bubba smith....87 roy jefferson....36 norm bulachi....and 89 gino marchetti......up next will be the jets vs the broncos in an old AFL matchup.

Game 3

Jets 24 broncos 7

I guess u know things are going good for your team when joe namath can scramble 47 yds ....this one was dominated by the jets ...matt snell had 2 rushing tds and emerson boozer had the other....floyd little caught a nice pass from steve tensi for the broncos only score. Outstanding players from the past include : 12 namath...41 snell....32 boozer....75 winston hill....61 bob talamani....66 randy rasmussen....13 don maynard and 67 dave herman for the jets.....great broncos include 44 little...13 tensi....87 rich jackson...88 al denson....55 pete duranko....63 bob Costa....and 57 tom jackson.....up next is a classic cold weather matchup between the browns and the bills....i might have to break out my new tudor snow board for this one.

Game 4

Snow game

Bills 21 browns 17

This was a good game....a snow storm hit buffalo for this one....the bills led 14 to 10 at the half and held on 21 to 17....lots of nice off tackle runs and id say that jim brown and oj simpson probably rushed for close to 150 yd each or better....both had 2 tds in the game.....great bills from the past include : 32 Simpson....34 cookie gilcrist....79 ron mcdole....82 paul costa....58 mike stratton....64 harry jacobs....66 billy shaw...and 25 haven moses.....great browns from the past include: 32 jim brown...44 leroy kelly....48 ernie green....16 bill nelson....72 gerry sherk ....76 lou groza....and 71 walter johnson.....up next is one my new tudor friend from england has looked forward to....the packers and the chiefs...a replay of super bowl 1.

Game 5

Packers 17 chiefs 0

Decided to play this one on what they call the gold endzone game....i found this one a few years ago and it had never been played on...the teams were still in the unopened bags....this game represented the first monday night football game ever played between the jets and the browns......now on to the game....this one was really closer and a much more even game that the score indicates....the big difference was the chiefs threw 2 interceptions that killed 2 nice drives.....jim taylor had a 74 yd td and carrol dale and bart starr hooked up on a 50 yd td pass for the packers....the packers move on to face the bills in the 2nd round.....outstanding players from the past include : 31 Taylor...15 starr....84 dale...75 forrest gregg....64 jerry kramer..87 willie davis.....26 herb atterly....and 66 ray nitschke for the packers.....great chiefs include : 16 len dawson....89 otis taylor...78 bobby bell...21 mike garrett....45 bobby holmes....63 willie lanier....and 55 ej holub......next up is an old AFL classic the chargers vs the oilers.

Good result for the Packers. Similar story in some of my games interceptions killing off really nice drives but that's the luck of the dice roll i guess 🙂

I'm guessing Packers now play the Bills? That will be a good game! Will the snow board be making an appearance again this tournament?

Since its the packers and the bills....that would be a good snow game im sure.....yes.....interceptions can change the game in a hurry....the chiefs had 3rd and goal on the 5 when they had the first pic.....and were driving late in 3rd qt on the other...interceptions have only a 1 out of 6 chance the way i play...but the packers beat the odds twice this game.

Seem to get interceptions in similar situations as you. Good in one way because it makes a game more exciting and unpredictable. But also annoying when you build up a nice drive to then roll a 1 😂 never mind it is probably more annoying when it happens to your team I'm real life!

Game 6

Chargers 21 oilers 16

This one had an exciting finish....the oilers had a 4th and 6 on their own 26 with only 4 plays left in the game and they were trailing 14 to 10...blanda hit charlie toler down the seam for a 74 yd score giving the oilers the lead 16 to 14 with only 3 plays left.....the chargers were trying to get into field goal range but john hadl found keith lincoln down the middle for a td and the chargers win 21 to 16......that completes the first round games....now the final 8 teams will meet to see who can continue to move on.....great players from the past include: 21 hadl....22 lincoln....23 paul lowe...19 lance alworth....77 ernie ladd and 74 ron mix for the chargers....the oilers were represented by : 16 blanda...44 toler...89 alvin reed....33 billy cannon....and 34 earl Campbell......up next will be the rams vs the dolphins.

I like the colours on that cowboys team 🙂 was the doomsday defense in full swing in this era?

 

 

I bought a set of pre painted figures I'm gonna use as the cowboys although colour of the pants is incorrect. Looked at gridiron uniforms database thought they played in dark pants at one point.  Nevermind they will be wearing a new uniform in my games lol. Might repaint the pants at a later date but I like the look of it anyway so may not bother

I do like "concept" kits anyway so a lot of my team's won't have official colours or a combination of colours never used. Either way excited to have the cowboys in my collection

I have these figures coming....

The cowboys had various shades of gray ...blue and silver...in the 60s and 70s.....i always preffered the blueish/silver of these ....i think they were one of the nicest teams tudor painted....my hog set and bigman set are identical in color....thats the reason i only have 9 bigmen....i have slowly picked up a few here and there....i could have a whole set of 11 with silver pants....but these ones that are what i call blueish/silver are much better looking in my opinion.

Game 8

Jets 21 cowboys 13

One thing i have learned over the years is when matt snell has a good game...emerson boozer is going to be the star in the next game....snell scored 2 tds in the jets first round game....today boozer had 3tds and the jets move on to face the dolphins in the 3rd round.....great former jets include : 41 Snell...32 boozer...12 joe namath...67 dave herman...83 george sauer...13 don maynard....75 winston hill...and 66 randy rasmussen.....the cowboys were represented by : 35 Calvin hill...32 walt garrison...74 bob lilly...55 leroy jordan ...12 roger stauback...and 22 bob hayes....up next will be the packers vs the bills.
