1969T Minnesota Vikings

After only eight seasons in the NFL, the lowly Minnesota Vikings all of a sudden didn’t look so low.  Compiling an 8-6 record in 1968 and making their first playoff appearance, the Vikes were primed for 1969.  Finishing with an NFL best 12 wins, the Vikings advanced in the playoffs by beating the Rams and Browns on their way to the Super Bowl.
Led by a defense dubbed the Purple People Eaters, the Vikings intimidated the league with sacks, interceptions, and hard tackles.  Stumpy quarterback Joe Kapp led the offense with fierce leadership and Dave Osborn piled up yardage on the ground.

The original football card set from 1969 really did a disservice to the Viking team by excluding 1968 Pro Bowlers Jim Marshall, Carl Eller, Alan Page and other stars such as Paul Krause, Gene Washington, and Gary Larsen. The original set even used a Canadian Football Card photo from the early 60s for Joe Kapp!  All of these issues have been corrected with the new 1969 Vikings RetroCards set that includes the aforementioned players plus: Karl Kassulke, Ed Sharockman, Ron Yary, Bob Lee, Wally Hilgenberg, Ed White, Gary Cuozzo, Clint Jones, Dave Osborn, a special Purple People Eaters card, plus a team card and head coach card of Bud Grant.
