The History of Roller Derby (Page 4):

Page: 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6


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.
