"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.

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 Super List of What’s New in Vintage Sports Videos

Striving for improvement, never resting on past success, these are important qualities of a champion. It is my mission at Holy Toledo to make small improvements every day, to get better each week. When you add them all up the sum equals something significant, a measurable step forward in the journey to being a champion.

When you see “What’s New” this time you will truly see the sum off many small steps that have added up to a significant journey. It is fitting that I am posting this during Super Bowl week, a time when the two best teams will add up all of their efforts to see who will be crowned as champion.

If you are new to vintage sports videos, here is the answer as to why we do what we do:

If you grew up watching games or races on the weekends, with fond memories of guys like Dandy Don, Gowdy, Enberg, Chris Economaki, or Steve Evans, this might be a hobby for you. If you want to show your kids the greatest players like Montana, Payton, Earl Campbell, or “Snake” Kenny Stabler, this is the place for you. Maybe you wish to never forget watching “The Catch” or “The Ghost To The Post” game with your father, who has since passed away. These are just some of the many reasons to watch and collect vintage sports videos.

For those of you who I’ve traded with lately, you will be happy to know that I purchased a new DVD Copier. The old machine was dying, but unfortunately I wasn’t aware of it. This led to many frustrations, I do apologize for any inconvenience. Suffice it to say the old machine is “going, going, GONE!”

Next time I write I will explore the DVD-R vs. DVD+R issue. It DOES matter.

You are going to love some of these gems I have picked up, mostly football, some baseball, and yes some very cool racing videos. If you are a racing fan you will find the new racing videos by scrolling to the bottom of this post, just below the baseball items.

New games, new equipment, new blanks disks, Holy Toledo is ready for the big game. I bought 10 pounds of chicken wings, and 18 lbs. of pork shoulder for carnitas, chile verde, and pulled pork sliders. You know what they say “Play to win, or don’t play at all!”

Wishing all of you a Super Sunday, and remember if you ever need any vintage sports videos you can count on Holy Toledo!

So, without further ado, here is
*** What’s New at Holy Toledo! ***

Here are some of the highlights:
-The great Tom Landry’s final two games (his last home game and his final win)
-Bernie Kosar’s career passing day (and its against Dan Marino)
-A beautiful new Thanksgiving Day game (1979), well certainly new to me that includes a rare Sid Luckman interview
-Raider fans will appreciate the nice upgrade of the 1983 Thursday Night game at San Diego
-The greatest comeback in the history of Monday Night Football, an outstanding high quality 4 disk copy of the incredible ’03 Indy at Tampa Bay epic
-Steve Largent’s career day, in an important battle vs. Denver
-Hall of Fame lineman Anthony Munoz’s 1st game
-One of the most incredible endings to a game you will ever see, ‘03 Saint at Jaguars
-If you are a Walter Payton fan you will see that I’ve picked up many new games
-Bill Belichick versus Joe Montana (Cleveland at KC)
-Many new selections from the 1970’s

-The good news is that I actually found a copy of the infamous “Announcer-less game” from 1980. The bad news is that the video quality is below average for a game from that era.

It’s National Vintage Sports Video Day!

If ever there was a day meant for watching vintage football games on dvd, today is that day. The week between the Conference championships and the Super Bowl is for most of us a dead week. Nobody I know over the age of 10 gets excited about the Pro Bowl. There is no racing, no baseball, just tall college boys in shorts, and frankly that just doesn’t do it for me. So where do we turn? Do what I do, pick out a favorite game from your vintage sports library and watch the legends play in legendary games.

On behalf of all of us collectors, seize this day, and do hereby declare today National Vintage Sports Video Day!

So if you are in Miami get your ass off the beach and watch Czonka or Marino, those in KC pull our your copy of Super Bowl IV, Raider fans put on Super Bowl XVIII or the Holy Roller. if you are a Cubs fan watch game 7. Steelers fans pick out anything from the 1970’s, Cowboys fans might wish to watch the 1992 NFC Championship, or since it is somewhat of a religious holiday, the Hail Mary game may be appropriate.

Personally I’m watching the great Monday Night Football game from 1978 at the Astrodome. You remember it, Earl Campbell & Howard Cosell vs. the mighty Dolphins of Miami. Luv ya Blue!

My father, who could care less about old football games is watching the 1984 NHRA U.S. Nationals on dvd. He, while sitting by a warm fire is watching Big Daddy Don Garlits face off with a young brash kid from Florida named Darrell Gwynn. He’s going to see some funny cars driven by Dunn, McCuloch, and Bernstein. That is the beauty of this holiday, the menu is wide open for you to choose.

Today we claim as our own.
From this day forth, and every year after, I declare that the Sunday before the Super Bowl will always be our official holiday. This day will forever be known as…
“National Vintage Sports Video Day”.

Go forth and watch Ray Scott or Curt Gowdy, soak up Howard and Danderoo, relive the greet Bill King. Just take a few minutes of this special day and claim it as your own.

Holy Toledo!

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.
