Very useful information and there are a few there I have never seen.

Does that 60-61 catalogue mean it was the first year orange/black dots was introduced in Jitterbugs/Hula popper etc.??
And how long were they in production for as the prices seem to keep going up!! Also was there a red/black dots and orange/black dots??

Time line very useful Detective RMD clapclap

I've been watching Ebay over the last several days...and there's a few of the catalogs in my pic that aren't in any current auctions...and to me that means they may be difficult to acquire -duh

Here's how I narrowed down the orange & black.

Not in the 1960 catalog on NFLCC...

Mentioned in 1962 catalog...

The Scooter in the box catalog was supposedly introduced in 1958...but the one SMALL 1959 catalog I had shipped today with a lure...and I didn't think to look in it crazysmilie -duh

According to tacklecollecting.com...there has never been a red with black spots.

And looking through the catalogs on the NFLCC...red with black spots is NOWHERE to be found ??? -duh

JMHO mate crazysmilie
