In 197, the Balloon Federation of America sold boxes of matches. These matchbooks have the BFA emblem on the front cover, and the slogan “Fly in Balloons” ornately inscribed on the back. Each box of fifty books of matches sold for $1.00 USD. At that time matches could not be mailed, so the BFA matches were made available to purchase from the following BFA members, Norton Grim, Dennis Floden, Bob Waligunda, Dodds Meddock and Matt Wiederkehr.
These match books are an extremely rare piece of BFA history with a select few still available.
