Super Skittle Bowl from Aurora (1973)

A 1973 ad for Roger’s Super Skittle Bowl from Aurora. And yes, the “Roger” in question is Pro Football Hall of Famer Roger Staubach.

“Olympic-size skittle bowl, it’s like having a bowling alley in your backyard or playroom.”

Remember the toys and games of years past through vintage advertising – for better and for worse!
