In 1973, the Seltzer organization sold
the promotional rights for Roller Derby to the Los Angeles-based
Roller Games organization. A number of reasons for the sale
have been speculated upon, including the state of the 1973
economy, lack of interest in continuing the organization and
the need to liquidate company holdings.
Between 1973 and 1975, Roller Games began to suffer from the
weak economy, high overhead costs and the complexities of
acquiring the Roller Derby organization. Roller Games discontinued
operation in 1975.
