What's your prized Vikings possession(s)? 


We all, pretty much, own something "Vikings" that we're pretty proud of.
So what are the things you have, that someone would have to pry from your dead, lifeless hands
before you'd ever give them up? Or maybe you have a shrine where you pray to Odin himself?

So... watcha got?

Memories of my very chance meeting and subsequent goose hunt with Bud Grant. Great morning even though we talked no football.

My authentic, signed AP jersey, which is in a shadow box and hanging on my wall. I also treasure my authentic jersey with the #1 on it and the name "Lucky Charm" on the back, which is signed by 6 or 7 players. I got that by being the first winner of KFAN's Lucky Charm contest in 2007, and also got tickets, airfare, hotel, and $200 for every game in every city until we lost. Unfortunately it only lasted for two games, thanks to Longwell's kick that bounced off of the uprights in OT in Detroit. But we got to stay with the team at the hotel which was really fun, and I met a bunch of players. My latest is one of Bud Grant's favorite old fishing reels which he signed for me. What else could a Gilgetter gal want? :- ). Oh and then there's that picture of me with Sharper. I should probably throw that away one of these days ... UGH.

Game worn gloves thrown to me and my brother by John Randle as he ran off the field at New England. That was in 2000 while we watched them beat the Patriots. It was cool as the few Vikings fans were scattered and we were one row from the closest.
We were wearing stadium hard hats which stood out to them obviously because Cris Carter, Korey Stringer, Johnny McWilliams, and Randle all acknowledged us

My most unique possession is my license plate - VIK1INZ. My wife gave it to me for my birthday a few years ago. It can be a bit embarrassing when we get hammered, but I like it. Not many fans in Virginia Beach so it kind of stands out.

I'm surprised there was that much competition for it, that you needed the 1, Z, etc.

I get similar looks here in NH with "VKINGS". (we were only 6 letters at the time... plates now have 7).

Football signed by Jim Marshall, Chuck Foreman, Ted Brown, Carl Eller and Jim Kleinsasser.  Could have had it signed by Cris Carter but met him by chance and didn't want to be the goofy fan (in San Diego was staying at the team hotel), so instead shook his hand and had a nice conversation. 

My wife gave me a bad time about it half way to the stadium and I finally told her is was CC, she thought I was just talking to some stranger in the hotel drive way.  I guess I talk to people to much.

Got a helmet from the '80's, Tarkenton Jersey, but I'd have to say my Norseman shaped ulcer.
