Introducing The Football Stick – It’s The Ultimate Vintage Sports Video Library!

Filed under: A.F.L., NFL, Oakland Raiders, Uncategorized, Vintage Sports Video — Bill @ 9:02 am

“This is the best thing to come along for vintage sports video since the invention of the vcr and the dvd!”

“The Football Stick”
by One Touch Video Library

“Someday there is going to be a machine that allows me to be able to watch any old football game I want. Instead of messing with dvds I will be able to simply scroll down the list of my games and choose one.” –A Longtime Collector of Vintage Sports Videos

Someday has arrived!
One Touch Video Library has created three Football Sticks fully loaded with vintage games of the past.
-The Super Stick, a collection of every Super Bowl game
-The Playoff Stick Vol.I, a collection of nothing but postseason games from 1952 thru 1984
-The Raider Stick Vol.I, a collection of Raider games from 1965 thru 1983

(for more detailed info. click here: https://onetouchvideolibrary.wordpress.com/37-2/ )

Recently we let a very special football fan try out our newest Football Stick and here is what he had to say.

Q: Well you’ve had a chance to use it for awhile, how do you like the Football Stick?
A: It’s like having my entire dvd collection hooked up to my TV at the same time. This thing is fantastic! All the best games are right here and I can watch any one I choose. This thing is awesome!”

Q: We have created three Football Sticks, which one did you try out?
A: I had The Playoff Stick, it had just about every major postseason game from 1952 thru the 1984 season, including the first 19 Super Bowl broadcasts. I’ve been collecting vintage football games for 35 years so I know which games are out there and which games are not. This has everything.

Q: How was the quality of each recording?
A: Excellent. Quality is always an issue with any vintage recording. I have multiple copied of some games just so I can find the best possible quality. Your quality matches or exceeds what I have seen.

Q: Was it hard to connect to your television?
A: No, it was surprisingly easy to hook up, I just plugged in one cord to the side of my TV. Once I did that all I had to do was pick up my remote control. Very simple.

Q: Did The Football Stick take up much space near your television?
A: Not at all, it’s about the size of a man’s wallet, only thinner. I also like that unlike a dvd player this device doesn’t have to be in sight of your remote, so I could tuck it away unseen. No power supply is needed so it doesn’t add a bunch of new cords. I already have enough equipment around my TV, so I was happy that it didn’t add another big machine. The Football Stick is small and easy to hide.

Q: Was The Football Stick easy to use?
A: Very simple. Because you use your regular TV remote I didn’t have to learn how to use a new one. It’s just like scrolling through your shows on your dvr, you select on and it starts playing.

Q: The Football Stick is easily portable. Did you try out this feature?
A: Yes and it was terrific. Originally I had it hooked up to my main TV in my living room. Last Saturday my wife was watching an old movie so I took The Playoff Stick into my office and watched the famous ’81 Chargers at Dolphins playoff game. A few days later I took it to my friend’s house so he could watch The Ghost To The Post game. Neither time did I have to deal with finding or playing any dvds. It was really easy to move it around from one TV to another.

Q: Is there any feature you would like to add to The Playoff Stick?
A: It does everything I had hoped for, and it is so easy to use. I think you guys did a superb job creating The Football Stick.

Q: Any final thoughts or observations you would like to add?
A: The Football Stick is going to make my dvd player obsolete, every game I have on dvd can now be loaded into The Football Stick. I’m going to want all three Football Sticks. Make me a deal!

Holy Toledo. He’s Back With More Vintage Sports Videos on DVD!

Hello Friends
Happy Opening Day to the 2018 baseball season!

Yes I am aware that it has been four months since I last posted here in Holy Toledo. To say that life has been hectic would be an understatement. While I missed it, you will see that I have not been resting on my a**, I mean laurels. BIG news is on the horizon, look for a major announcement in the coming days.

Meanwhile here is “What’s New” in vintage sports video. You will find these catagories bekiw: NFL, NFL Game of the Weej shows, College Football, Basketball, and Drag Racing.

Highlights include:

-A new Bill King video, he narrates a nice copy of the 1974-75 Golden State Warriors Highlight Film
-While on the subject of hoops, I found a cool recording of a record breaking performance. “The Sleepy Floyd Game” as called by Greg Papa. Sleepy scores 29 points in the 4th quarter!
1987 Western Conference Gm.4 LA Lakers at Golden St.

Football:
-A game coached by Otto Graham, my first I believe
The ‘69 College All-Stars vs. the world champion NY Jets.

-Did you know that the “perfect” 1972 Dolphins almost lost a game?
Yes Joe Willie Namath’s NY Jets put a scare in Shula’s team, they had to overcome two 2nd Half Jet leads. Watch it in a well done merge of game film and radio broadcast.
(NFL Game Of The Week show also acquired of this game)

-Can you win a game when your QB throws five interceptions?
See the 1980 Chiefs at Seahawks, it’s quite odd

Famous 1st and Lasts:
-Brett Favre’s 1st NFL game, one he wishes he could forget (1991).
-Bill Parcells’ first game as a head coach (1983).
-Eric Dickerson’s 1st and last game as a LA Ram (1983 and 1987)
-New Orleans Saints clinch their 1st winning season in franchise history, in of all places Pittsburgh
-Raymond Berry’s 1st game as head coach for the Patriots
-1st game for the “Phoenix” Cardinals (1988).

Great Individual Performances:
-Mark Rypien incredible 7 touchdown game, and wait until you see his stats (1991).
-Moon vs. Kosar in a virtual playoff game to decide the ‘89 AFC Central champion on the final week of the season. Naturally it’s a thriller.
-The famous Montana to Rice for 78 yards in the waning second the beat Big Blue

-A game with historic and scary proportions, and a game that was hard to find. The “Tom Landry Death Threat game”. Yes while in LA coach Landry had to be escorted from the field by security. He later returned, but this had never happened before (1986).

“The Dog Pound”
If you like “Marty’s Browns” you will enjoy several new games from the Kosar era

Upgrades:
-Raider fans will be happy with 3 nice upgrades, including a beautiful copy of an epic thriller at the Dog Pound.
-Upgrades of the 1987 AFC Championship and a Super Bowl XX, both from high quality original masters.

College Football:
-Dick Butkus & Carl Eller in Rose Bowls
-A cool Jim Plunkett 1970 Stanford game
-Chick Hearn calling a Rose Bowl game
-O.J. Simpson vs. Joe Theisman from 1968 (USC vs. Notre Dame).

-NHRA: the full 2017 season including Sportsman and Pro Mod.

Take your time, look through this list, and take a walk down memory lane.

Feel free to contact me should you have any questions or special requests.

Best wishes,
Bill
from Holy Toledo!

What’s New In Vintage Sports Video from Holy Toledo! Holiday 2017 Edition

Despite the wildfires of northern California I was still able to collect quite a few new games. Of course most of the acquisitions occurred before the fire, my life has been quite hectic afterwards. The latest list of “What’s New” is chalk full of gems, here are some of the highlights.

-A game coached by Otto Graham, my first I believe.
The ‘69 College All-Stars vs. the world champion NY Jets.

-Did you know that the “perfect” 1972 Dolphins almost lost a game? Yes Joe Willie Namath’s NY Jets put a huge scare in Shula’s team, the Dolphins had to overcome two Jet leads, one in the 4th quarter. A well done merge of game film and radio broadcast.
-Game Of The Week also acquired of this same game

-Mark Rypien incredible 7 touchdown game, and wait until you see his stats (1991).
-Brett Favre’s 1st NFL game, one he wishes he could forget (1991).
-A game with historic and scary proportions, and a game that was hard to find. The “Tom Landry Death Threat game”. Yes while in LA coach Landry had to be escorted from the field by security. He later returned, but this had never happened before (1986).

-Moon vs. Kosar in a virtual playoff game to decide the ‘89 AFC Central champion on the final week of the season. Naturally it’s a thriller.

-O.J. Simpson vs. Joe Theisman from 1968 (USC vs. Notre Dame).
-Eric Dickerson’s 1st and last game as a LA Ram (1983 and 1987)

-Bill Parcells’ first game as a head coach (1983).
-1st game for the “Phoenix” Cardinals (1988).

-Raider fans will be happy with 3 nice upgrades, including a beautiful copy of an epic thriller at the Dog Pound.
-Speaking of the Dog Pound, if you like “Marty’s Browns” you will enjoy several new games from the Kosar era.

-Upgrades of the 1987 AFC Championship and a Super Bowl XX, both from high quality original masters.

-NHRA: the full 2017 season including Sportsman and Pro Mod.

Wish you all a happy and safe holiday season, and just remember one thing. When things get really exciting and you are on the edge of your seat think of Bill King and loudly proclaim “Holy Toledo!”

Sincerely,
Bill
from Holy Toledo!

Holiday Specials & Holiday Wishes from Holy Toledo Vintage Sports Videos on DVD

Happy Holidays from Holy Toledo!

Let’s get right to it. No I did not lose my home to the wildfires of northern California, however it was close. We were evacuated three times, and I packed sever important bins of my vintage sports collection. However I had to leave behind most of the bins, which was a tough thing to do. The fire came very close to our home, we were fortunate because the firefighters did such an incredible job. Many of our friends and family were not as fortunate.

As we all gather this holiday season we are truly thankful. We have a whole new appreciation for the first responders, and we are grateful that the lives of our friends and family were spared.

Once again it is that jingle bell time of year. Pour the egg nog, put up Christmas lights, and watch your favorite vintage sports videos. This year I could watch the 2017 Auto Club NHRA Finals over and over again. Way to go Brittany and Robert! I’ve also added “the longest game” to this years rotation, I want to revisit the epic ‘71 Christmas triple overtime playoff game between Miami and Kansas City. I also want to watch a good game announced by Don Criqui, an underrated announcer.

— Gift Giving —
Rather than giving a gift that will sit on a shelf gathering dust, or will remain neatly folded in the “clothes I never wear” drawer, give the gift that keeps on giving… Vintage Sports Videos!

Or you could do what many of us do, by yourself the present you really want, because you know nobody is going to buy for you.

Everybody loves to watch their favorite team or player win that legendary game. In our house we like to watch Big Daddy and The Snake. As most of you are aware I collect vintage sports and probably have every major or historic moment in NFL, College Football, NASCAR, NHRA, and IndyCar. If you want to see my complete list just click on the links to your right, or email me.

End Of Summer Update: What’s New In Vintage Sports from Holy Toledo!

Can you believe that 25% of the NFL’s regular season is complete?
Once again it is time to fill you in on What’s New in vintage sports.

This is a labor of love for me, I do really enjoy this hobby of collecting and archiving sports history. My wife isn’t quite as thrilled about it as I am, because of he space needed to store all of these games and races. More on that problem at a later date.

Sports fans you are going to be thrilled when you see what I’ve uncovered for you (*Racing Fans, more coming for you soon). Here are just some of the highlights. I suggest you sit down with a cup of coffee and scroll through this list. Not only will you jot down a few games you will want, it will also be like looking back on a timeline of football history.

Holy Toledo there is some new stuff of the Kardiac Kids, gotta love Sipe & Ozzie.

-A beautiful copy of an underrated great game to decide the 1982 NFC East that takes place on the final weekend of the season, St. Louis at Washing

-A Wild West Shootout with 10 touchdown passes in one game (this year’s 49ers may not do that until November!)

-Ken “Snake” Stabler’s final game
-Herschel Walker’s 1st NFL game
-Al Michaels 1st MNF game

-3 more games of the epic 1990’s rivalry between the two best teams of that era, Dallas vs. San Francisco. Getting really close to having all nine of these great battles.

-Several new Thanksgiving games, including a nice upgrade of the “Fastest OT Ever”, Thanksgiving 1980

In College Football:
-Two rare 1970’s Rose Bowl games, 1970 & 1974

-Some young vintage Troy Aikman games while he was with Oklahoma & UCLA, including one game against his future coach Jimmy Johnson.

-One of the most famous plays in Nebraska history, a 2 yard TD run by Mike Rozier that is simply amazing!
-The 1st ever Kickoff Ckassic, 1983

Too much to mention here, just take a stroll down memory lane as you review the latest of “What’s New” from Holy Toledo!

Sincerely,
Bill

Vintage U.S. Nationals Drag Racing Videos On Sale!

Filed under: Classic Cars, NHRA, Uncategorized, Vintage Sports Video — Bill @ 3:40 pm

In memory of my uncle Buck,
who was a big fan
and a great man.

They gather every Labor Day weekend in Indianapolis, coming from all corners of the country, some from even further. For what you ask? It’s the biggest drag race in the world, the U.S. Nationals. It’s the “Big Go”, the Super Bowl of the National Hot Rod Association.

Nearly 1000 competitors bring their hot rod with one goal in mind, to win the last race on Monday. This is a historic race full of legendary moments, stars, villains, and goats. You know the names, Garlits, Prudhomme, Muldowney, Kalitta, Bernstein, and Force. Records have been broken, barrier have been shattered, including some they thought were impossible. 200 miles per hour, 250 m.p.h., and 300 m.p.h., 6 seconds, 5 seconds, and even 4 seconds. What began on an abandoned airfield in Great Bend, Kansas in 1955 has grown into an event so massive that it nearly takes a week to complete.

Having grown up around cars and racing all of my life, I heard many stories about “The Nationals”. We couldn’t wait to hear who won. As a kid the first time I saw “The Nationals” was on ABC’s Wide World of Sports. Keith Jackson was the announcer that day in 1970 when Jim Nicoll’s slingshot dragster was cut in half after a clutch exploded prompting Don Prudhomme to say, “I quit.” At the age of 10 I was forever hooked, we attended the 1971 Winternationals the following year.

Since the day I brought home my first vcr I started recorded drag races. I had stacks of tapes, but the most cherished ones were the recordings of the U.S. Nationals. We grew up watching Dave McClellend, Steve Evans (he of the “Sunday, Sunday, Sunday!” fame). We’ve seen this race on Wide World of Sports, The Nashville Network (TNN), NBC, ESPN, and now Fox Sports. Once in 1983 the announcer was Hall of Fame baseball player Reggie Jackson. The first live broadcast was televised on TNN with our old friends Dave & Steve. True drag racing fans were less than thrilled with the ESPN era because they always delayed the broadcast because of something stupid like Little League baseball or girls softball. The U.S. Nationals television coverage has come a long way from it’s early years.

By the way, I want to clear up something for some of you who may be confused by my terminology. When the very first race occurred in 1955 it was simply known as “The Nationals” At that time it was the only drag race where racers came from both coasts, which is why the original site was chosen smack dab in the middle of the country Great Bend, Kansas. The Nationals were permanently moved to Indianapolis in 1961. The name of the race was officially changed to the “U.S. Nationals in 1973.

This weekend, for those of us not fortunate enough to be attending the race, we will be blessed with nine hours of television coverage. Yes we have come a long way.

For many of you, like myself, you love to watching the old races with the famous cars like the Hot Wheels funny cars, Blue Max, Chi-Town Hustler, Candies & Hughes, the Bounty Hunter, Pure Hell, and the “Nuclear Banana” just to name a few. There is great joy to be found in watching those old Wide World of Sports races, or listening to Steve Evans describe the final round of Top Fuel with Darrell Gwynn versus Big Daddy. Over the years I’ve converted all those vhs recordings to dvd, and now, with the help of some fellow collectors, I have built a formidable collection of original television broadcasts of the U.S. Nationals.

In honor of this years 63rd U.S. Nationals I thought some of you might appreciate a special price for some of these memorable vintage U.S. Nationals drag racing videos.

Any 5 races for $9 ea.
Any 10 races for $7.50 ea.

“A Hall of Fame collection about a Hall of Fame player. The ten discs contained in this collection capture the football career of a football legend. A wonderful compendium of Ken Stabler videos” — Tom Edel

“If Willie Nelson were a football player he would be Ken Stabler”

THE STORY BEHIND THE COLLECTION
The long skinny scoreboard read 1:56 left in the 4th quarter, Miami 26, Oakland 21. You know that scoreboard, you’ve seen it a million times. It separates the first and second deck at the Oakland Coliseum. Every Raider fan in the stadium was on the edge of their seat, every Raider fan watching on TV had seen him do this before. He’s “Snake, a good old boy who pulls rabbits out of hats. The king of the two minute drill, the sultan of swagger.

Stabler to Biletnikoff for a 1st down.
With the offensive live giving Kenny great protection he has time to survey the field. Stabler to Branch, another 1st down, but the clock is running…
1:11, 1:10, 1:09…

This time they line up without a huddle, but Stabler isn’t hurried. He throws a quick pass to Branch who races out of bounds. It was a short gain but the clock is stopped with 52 seconds left, 2nd down at the Miami 20 yard line.

Ken “Snake” Stabler was right where he belonged, despite this pressure packed situation he was as calm as if he were taking a Tuesday afternoon stroll. He didn’t race to the sidelines for instructions, nobody told him the next play over a speaker in his helmet. Instead he simply walked into the huddle, looked into his teammates eyes, called the play in his familiar Southern drawl, and then led his men to the line of scrimmage.

When he takes the ball from center Kenny doesn’t stand up there barking out long winded signals, he gets the ball and goes. Because he is left handed he looks different from all the other quarterbacks. Strange at first, but now strangely comfortable. He’s become the iconic image of the left-handed quarterback.

Stabler to Frank Pitts, who almost drops it, but manages to hold on. He is just short of the 1st down so Snake calls time. 3rd down and less than a yard to go at the 14 yard line.

Stabler brings them to the line, asks the crowd for quiet, then hands off to Clarence Davis. To nobody’s surprise Davis goes left behind Shell and Upshaw for a gain of six. Kenny uses his final time out.

35 seconds to go…
1st down and goal at the 8 yard line.
Just another typical Raider game at the House of Thrills.

On the Raiders sidelines coach John Madden was nervously shouting instructions. As Kenny listened he calmly looked up into the frenzied crowd. This wasn’t just any game against any team. It was the AFC Divisional playoffs against Don Shula’s mighty Dolphins. Miami had gone to the last three Super Bowls, and were back-to-back champions. While many buckled under such pressure, or succumbed to the fear of failure, Snake thrived on it. Kenneth Michael Stabler lived for these moments.

Everyone knows what happened next. It ranks as one of the most iconic plays in NFL history. Stabler floated a pass into a “Sea of Hands” and it came down between the 2 and the 8 of number 28 Clarence Davis. And the crowd went wild.

WHAT’S THIS ALL ABOUT?
This isn’t about that particular game, nor that particular season. This is about number 12, the personification of cool, the swaggering gunslinger from Foley, Alabama who studied the playbook by the light of the jukebox.

There will be Raider quarterbacks who pass for more yards, throw more touchdowns, or win more games. There will be Raider quarterbacks who win more Super Bowls (hopefully). Someone else will wear that famous silver & black number 12, hell he might even be left handed. There might be all of these things, but one thing is certain, there will never be another Ken Stabler.

When Kenny passed away on July 8, 2015 I recorded several of the memorable shows from that day that included some very nice comments that his teammates, coaches, opponents, and friends had to say. I think my idea began that day. At that time the most commonly repeated phrase was, “Snake should be in the Hall”, but we had heard this before.

Sentiment is a funny thing. On August 6th, 2016 Ken Stabler was enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Sadly he was unable to enjoy this prestigious honor that he so richly deserved. Instead it was his daughters and “the Grand Snakes” that took it all in that day. As I watched the induction ceremonies I admit I shed a tear. It was then that I decided to go full steam ahead with my idea. It would be my way to honor the man who had given me such joy over the years. As most of you know I have a vast collection of Raider games, plus many, many hours of rare Raiders video clips I’ve collected over the years. I wanted to create “The Ultimate Ken Stabler Video Collection”.

It has taken me two years to complete this project. I wasn’t about to just throw something together, Kenny gave his best on the field so I needed to give my best as well. I consulted experts, made pages of notes, looked over and edited hours and hours of footage.
