Looking for high quality original broadcasts of the great games of your youth?
Want to show your kids legends like Namath, Staubach, Czonka, or the Steel Curtain?
Want to relive the Ghost To The Post, Miracle at the Meadowlands, or the Holy Roller?

To build one of the nation’s largest vintage sports video collections it takes decades of effort, good equipment, & even better friends. Just a few days ago I completed a monumental task, creating an updated, organized, more user friendly list of my entire collection. I have posted it for you here on Holy Toledo! (Unfortunately it doesn’t translate as well to the web, so feel free to email me for an even better & easier to use list)

Let’s talk about quality.
Obviously we can’t teleport back to January 14th, 1973 and re-record Super Bowl VII between Don Shula’s perfect Dolphins & George Allen’s “Over-the Hill Gang”. So here’s what I’ve done. I’ve acquired multiple recordings of this game, from a myriad of sources, searching for the best quality recording known to exist. Then I repeated this process over & over for all the great games.

Then there are moments when the clouds part, the sky opens up and drops us a perfect quality recording of the 1973 AFC Championship, or the famous 1976 Monday Night game when Oakland hosted the Bengals. You can’t explain it, you just gratefully accept it and move on.

Sometimes a game simply doesn’t exist. For years we’ve been looking for a recording of the 1974 AFC Playoff game known as the “Sea Of Hands”. All we have is the radio broadcast & several highlight films. Until recently the only copy of the1977 “ Ghost To The Post” game was soft & blurry. There is no complete broadcast of Super Bowl V. We learn to live with the best we can get, but that doesn’t mean we stop trying for improve.

This is why you should subscribe to Holy Toledo!. It’s Free! You will get the latest news, updated information, and for better or worse, the rambling contents of my head.

*I also collect vintage baseball games & other sports, but that’s on a different list.

Please email me if you have any trade requests, questions, or would like a copy of my game list on an Excel document.
