Holy Toledo! New Bill King! End Of Summer Special on Vintage Sports DVDs

Are You Ready For Some Football?
I am.

$7 each for anything you see on this list.
Minimum order of 3 items.

Hey there old friends, been a long summer, I’ve seen too many bikinis to discuss.
Wait until you see what I uncovered recently in the wide wacky wonderful world of vintage sports on dvd.

First off, in honor of the man Mr. Holy Toledo himself, I have some new Bill King recordings.
It is so damn good it will bring a tear to yur eye.

Speaking of legendary announcers, and legendary games…
Would you like to hear the 1972 ALCS Game 5 entire game featuring the legendary Ernie Harwell?
We have it here at Holy Toledo!

There is some really cool NFL Highlights that feature some rare Raiders stuff,
Madden’s 100th win,
the Raiders 1st OT game.

NFL TV broadcasts include perhaps the best single game example of “Air Coryell,
an upgrade on a classic Raider-Broncos game,
an upgrade of Bo’s 1st game,
plus many other cool NFL gems.

Like College Football?
Wait until you see what I uncovered.
If you are a Cornhuskers fan hold on to your jeans.
How about some rare Auburn Tigers Pat Sullivan TV coverage?
A great Earl Campbell game, a kid named Mike Singletary, Bear Bryant historic games.
The list goes on and on.

How about a young kid name Elway knocking off the #1 team in the country.
National Championships, Charles Woodson, and rare footage of the final days of Aaron Rodgers at Cal.

Do you remember Sunday morning in the 1970’s…
The Notre Dame highlight shows with Lindsay Nelson & Paul Hornung,
I found some beauties!

Like Basketball?
Rare, Dr. J, Rick Barry, Alvin Adams & Paul Westphal.
How abot one of the greatest NCAA Tournament games ever in it’s entirety?
2005 Regional Finals Illinois vs. Arizona, arguably one of the greatest games ever.

Rare 1976 World Series games Reds vs. Yankees

You throw in some newly found drag races,
some old boat drags with Eddie Hill (who doesn’t love 200 M.P.H. on the water?)

Reminds you once again why you love to watch the great announcers, the names you grew up with, the legends, it’s all found in Vintatge Sports Video here at Holy Toledo!

Share among your friends, find old classics, and always record everything in the best quality mode possible.. If history has taught us anything, we have learned that a high quality recording of a great moment is worth far more than one vhs tape, or a few dvds.

Sincerely,
Bill
from Holy Toledo!

Vintage Daytona, Indy & Drag Boats on DVD!

I am happy to report that I have finally been able to pick p some new vintage racing action. With one very notable exception, most of the new acquisitions are Nascar & Drag Boat Racing. However if you are a fan of the Indianapolis 500 I have big news for you.

Long before the days of live race coverage on your television the Indy 500 could only be seen by attending what was called a “closed-circuit broadcast”. Racing fans would gather at a local theater, pay for a ticket, and watch the race on a large movie screen. Some of you silver haired fans will remember this. Well from far across the pond I found a beautiful 3 disk copy of the 1966 Indianapolis 500! The broadcast has no announcers, it does however have all the sounds from the track. An exciting race featuring Jim Clack, Graham Hill, and rookie Jackie Stewart. The pole sitter was Mario Andretti, and of course there are several racers named Unser. The quality for a 1966 recording is surprisingly good, however there is no audio for the first 17 minutes of the recording. This recording appears to be a copy of the raw satellite feed sent to Europe, it is very cool and quite the find!

Meanwhile I’ve also found some rare old Nascar races from the 1970’s to the 1990’s. Of particular interest to some of you will be the recordings from the old Riverside, as well as some hard to find Daytona 500 races that were missing from my collection.

Attention Drag Boat Fans! If you love the liquid quarter mile take note. I have listed all of my IHRA and Lucas Oil Drag Boat Racing collection. There are some really cool recordings here, featuring drag boats before the days of the enclosed cockpit. I wish I had more, so if you have any, or know anyone who wants to trade, please contact me. I also have some of my own home movies featuring drag boats racing at Oakland, Oroville, and Perris California.

I am also looking for some NHRA Drag Racing videos from the 1980’s and 1990’s needed to fill in my collection, so please let me know if you would like to trade.

Check out what is new in vintage racing videos.

John Madden’s 1st Game As Announcer, Big Score In Vintage Sports Video Land!

(I haven’t forgotten, I’m still working on the Holy Toledo shirt connection, other than going to an Oakland A’s game to buy one)

Big Score!

A non-disgruntled mail lady delivered a really fine package of the most high priority today,, delivering some very vintage NFL games on dvd that made me extremely happy.

We all recognize John Madden as a unique announcer full of colorful phrases and insights only authored by the big man himself. However there was a day when he was a rookie, unsure of his abilities, and a bit awkward to say the least. That day occurred in week 4 of the 1979 season, just a few months after he had retired from coaching the Oakland Raiders. It was the day he became known as the announcer John Madden, as opposed to coach Madden.

September 23rd, 1979 at Candlestick Park in San Francisco, CA
New Orleans Saints vs. San Francisco 49ers
John Madden’s 1st game as an announcer

His agent had to convince him to try it, he was extremely reluctant, refused to fly to games, didn’t tell CBS about his fear of flying, but even in his 1st game Madden showed he had a knack for this thing they call announcing.

The game is joined in progress with two teams that described as mediocre might be a stretch. Yet a young Bill Walsh’s team led by Steve Edberg, O.L. Simpson, & Freddie Solomon face the Saints led by Dick Nolan, Archie Manning, Chuck Muncie, & Tony Galbraith.

1979 Thanksgiving Day
Houston Oilers at Dallas Cowboys
Roger Staubach vs. Earl Campbell

Bum Phillips’s red hot Oilers invade Big D to take on the establishment, America’s Team, Landry’s Cowboys. Dante Pastorini & “Double O” Ken Burrough try to outduel Staubach & Drew Pearson, but both have a fearsome running attack, Tony Dorsett vs. Earl Campbell. The result is an unforgettable holiday classic that end with excitement.

1986 Week 13
“The End Of The Era”
Philadelphia Eagles vs. Los Angeles Raiders
A game that features two great defenses, many stars (Reggie White, Randall Cunningham, Hayes & Haynes, Marcus Allen), a back & forth thriller that ends in heartbreak for the Raiders. Some say that this was the day the Marcus Allen vs. Al Davis feud began. One thing is certain, things were never the same again in L.A. after this game. This is a new upgraded version that far exceeds the previous version.

It’s always nice to get new material in the mail, this is why I love trading games, finding new friends, and seeing what other people have in their video collection.

If you are interested in a copy of these games let me know,
Holy Toledo!

Also New at Holy Toledo!
-1989 NBA Eastern Conference Finals
Chicago Bulls vs. Detroit Pistons, Games 1-6
-1989 NBA Finals
Detroit Pistons vs. Los Angeles Lakers, Games 1-4
-A bunch of new original broadcasts of NFL Playoff games from the 1990’s

*New next Week!
A large collection of rare NFL Yearbook films, some from as old as 1949!

Attention NHRA Fans:
I recorded the entire broadcast of this year’s NHRA U.S. Nation, in total over 12 hours of footage. The latest was the addition of the Lucas Oil Series to put a cap on this year’s phenomenal event from Indianapolis.

5th Annual Peggy Sue All-American Cruise & Car Show

Filed under: Classic Cars — Bill @ 11:41 pm

The  5th Annual 2007 Peggy Sue All-American Cruise & Car Show

“Thousands watched as the thunder of classic hot rods rolled by.”

With rave reviews and a new location one can only say that the future looks bright for this fabulous event.  Year number five brought nearly 700 cars from as far as Canada, and all parts unknown.

This weekend was a huge success, “The Cruise” on Saturday night gathered thousands to downtown Santa Rosa businesses as thay all watched the chrome go by.

Windsor, the old location screwed up by not working a deal with the Peggy Sue folks, for this event brought many dollars to the downtown Santa Rosa area.

This event can be counted on as a huge success in the future, and we all look forward to next year.  

*Special honors go to Bill & Gayle Kuhn for their immaculate 1975 GMC Pickup.  Out of the 5 years this event has been held Bill’s truck was 1st three times, & 2nd twice, including two wins in a row..  Bill is known for his attenttion to detaill, and clearly the judges noticed.

(and special kudos to “Raider Mike” not just because he is a Raider fan, but also because he is a great guy who happens to have a very cool car)
