What is it about toys from the 80′s that drive prices through the roof? It has to be the nostalgic factor.
Tudor Games is best known for it’s vibrating electronic tabletop football game. Outside the realm of tabletop football, Tudor Games did go off and make some other sports related toys. One of their ventures was their line of NFL Huddles Mascots. These lovable mascots could be found as stuffed toys, trading cards, pins, cars, and miniature figures. They had these little guys plastered on anything and everything. Of all the items they made, their miniature figures and stuffed toys are what collectors seem to want the most.
The miniature figure line covers all 28 teams, just like most of their other NFL Huddles Mascots products. They contain no moving parts and come packaged on a cheap piece of cardboard. For being just the most basic form of a toy, these things can carry one heck of a price. As it is with most collectibles, condition is everything. People want these mint in package and untouched as much as possible. Prices can be all over the place. Some figures sealed in their original packs sell for $20.00, while others can go for as much as $150.00. That’s not a bad return for something that could be purchased for $2.99 in 1983. If you think that’s crazy, a collector recently purchased a Buccaneers plush for over $400.00. The NFL Huddles card set doesn’t have much value. Just like most card sets from the 80′s.
