    Largest Viking Library

    All right Valhalla dwellers!
    I've seen impressive examples of Viking memorabilia collections on this site.
    Who has the largest personal collection of books specifically written about the Vikings?
    At last count, I have ten:

    -
    Tales from the Vikings Locker Room, Williamson
    -
    True Hearts and Purple Heads, Klobuchar
    -
    Cold Wars:
    40 Years of Packer-Vinking Rivalry, Mishler (autographed)
    -
    The Rest of The Iceberg, Robert Smith (autographed)
    -
    Knights and Knaves of Autumn, Klobuchar
    -
    Tarkenton, Klobuchar and Tarkenton
    -
    Bud, The Other Side of the Glacier, McGrane
    -
    Will the Vikings Ever Win the Super Bowl?
    Klobuchar/Siemon
    ???
    -
    Tough Enough to be Vikings, Ballew
    -
    If I Were A Minnesota Viking, Picture Me Books

    A number of the books are out of print but you can find them, sometimes at a very good price via used book dealers on the net.

    going by the ones I have, then Purple Hearts gives a lot of information, especially about the early years of the team. In their own ways theough they all would have good points to recommend. Bit like the forums here in that you get many views from different people
