"Holy Toledo!"

What’s New In Vintage Sports Video for 2016!


While everyone was off celebrating for the holidays and drinking champagne to toast the new year Holy Toledo was busy finding new gems in the wonderful wacky wild world of vintage sports video.

With so many new items to describe, it is difficult to determine what to highlight first. I suppose it would be best to begin with games that were never knew existed before. Take for example the really cool version of the 1980 week 12 matchup between the two teams that would eventually meet in the Super Bowl Oakland at Philadelphia. This is a really nice copy and an excellent game. Raider fans have been searching for this one for many years.

Raiders fans also might take note of the two new nice quality upgrades from 1982, 1983, 2000, and 2004.

There are a few new Monday Night & Thursday Night football games from the Howard Cosell era that have been discovered.

If you are a fan of Billy Sims or the Lions, take note that I have found copies of his first few NFL games, and he came into the league with a big splash!

Speaking of 1980, you will see that I added more games of a couple really fun teams to watch, the “Cardiac Kids” of Cleveland led by Brian Sipe, and Bartkowski’s high flying Falcons.

If you love overtime thrillers take note of the two great games from week 8 and 9, 2001. These were the two weeks in a row that the bears won back-to-back overtime games because of a linebacker named Mike Brown. As good as the 49ers at Bears game is, the Browns at Bears game the following week is even better. And wait until you see the quality of that Browns-Bears game, it is spectacular.

Speaking o beautiful quality… I picked up a really nice copy of the Cleveland Browns final game at the old Municipal Stadium (1995) before they moved to Baltimore. This copy also includes local pre and postgame coverage. A must have for any true Browns fan.

Do you remember a guy they called “The Nigerian Nightmare”? His name is Christian Okoye, and during his prime he was about as dominating and scary a running back to ever play the game. I picked up some of his best games from 1989 and 1990.

There are just too many goodies to mention them all so simply scour the list below to see what is new from Holy Toledo! In addition to the NFL games you will find some rare college football, a few whopper of baseball games, along with basketball and racing. As always feel free to email me with any questions.
