5.0 out of 5 stars Spirit of Minnesota Vikings - Odin Lives! September 21, 2010
Verified Purchase
This 2 disc set on the History of the Minnesota Vikings is great! The first disc covers the franchise history in the NFL beginning in 1960 through 2010; covers mostly all of the past great Vikings teams and members, Joe Kapp, Fran Tarkenton, Chuck Foreman, Keith Millard, Wally Hilgenberg, Marshall, Page, Eller, Randall McDaniel, Adrian Peterson, Favre, the list goes on and on, great stuff!

The second disc is just as great with BOTH America's Games: Missing Rings - the 1968 Vikings and the 1998 Vikings, again, just great stuff!

This is a a must own for any Vikings fan and a definite complement to the 5 greatest games dvd set on the Minnesota Vikings!

5.0 out of 5 stars This One Will Stay In My Collection November 26, 2010
Over the years, as a huge fan of the Minnesota Vikings, I have tried to pursue a lot of the old highlight reels, with varying success/failure. Now, I have the one set that will stand in my collection as the definitive Vikings history on DVD.

There are two parts to this DVD:

First, is the roughly two-hour "History of the Vikings" documentary, which touches on nearly every season in the franchise's 50 year history. It is very well done and will appeal to Vikings fans both young and old.

The second disc continues some shorter vignettes about Bud Grant, Adrian Peterson, Robert Smith, and the "Missing Rings" segments of the 1969 and 1998 Vikings. Again, nothing here is boring.

So, if you have been searching high and low for Minnesota Vikings history, please look no further. This set is inexpensive, yet expansive in history. It will be the cornerstone of your Vikings collection, for sure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! October 15, 2010
Verified Purchase
If you are a Viking fan this is a must! Loved watching the few hours of highlights from the Vikings over the past 50 years. My Best friends dad is even in this as he made a great interception for a TD against the Chicago Bears. All the great players Tarkenton, Gilliam, Sammy White, Marshal, Page, Foreman, Anthony Carter, Cris Carter on and on etc... How do you not love the Mexican/American player Joe Kapp after watching this DVD, what a cool guy! Kapp was given the most valuable player award and he refused to take it because he said it was all about the team not him! After watching this, you'll know why the owners wanted to bring back Randy Moss! Amazon.com by far, had the best price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have for any Viking fan March 4, 2011
Verified Purchase
I was born in 73 so I didn't know a whole lot about the legendary teams that made the Super Bowl. This was great to watch and learn more about my beloved purple. 40 for 60 was my favorite, and Joe Kapp is the man. I don't know why but I find myself wathing the 1998 Vikings story over and over, reliving the agony each time. Just a great set for any Vikings fan. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must-Have Movie For Minnesota Fans December 25, 2010
There is some terrific highlight footage of the early '60s Vikings games, color and black and white film that I never knew existed before. This program delivers the goods, and leaves no era out of the chronicles. Along with the game films, aged Vikings of yore were interviewed and were generous with their memories and insights. Who'd have thought old Bud would have so much to say. This DVD brought back a wealth of warm memories for me, and I wish I could buy a copy for all of my purple friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! December 22, 2010
By Michael

I have been looking for this DVD for decades now. I have been wondering if the Vikings were going to have a History DVD. It is very informative and you get to see vintage footage of historic games in the history of my Vikings. A must see for true Vikings fans.
