    Thank you Matt Blair

    A co-worker of mine had a silent auction at work during the past week for a kids charity & one of the packages included;

    An autographed hard-cover copy of Matt's book "To be a Viking"

    An autographed Matt Blair T-shirt

    An autographed 8x10 action photo of Matt

    For you young ones not in the know, Matt Blair played LB for the Vikings
    from 1974-1985, making the Pro-Bowl 6 times.

    Needless to say I put the first bid down with the minimum bid of $10 with every intention of going back shortly before the auction end & putting in the winning bid if it didn't go extremely high.

    To my surprise, no one came around to try & out bid me & I won the package today with my measly initial bid of $10.

    Matt is a great guy, does a lot of things for charity & I'm glad he contributed to this fundraiser.

    Was that $10 for the whole lot singer?
    Why wouldn't people bid on this?

    I hope Matt doesn't find out that that's all it went for.

    It was indeed for the whole lot. I don't understand wht others didn't bid. There certainly was enough old-timers around who knew who Matt Blair was.

    There were also 6 different auctions for campsites at Jellystone park in Warrens for $5 for the weekend. There wasn't a single bid on any of them. Although they were only good for next weekend, which happens to be Mothers day.

    Another austion for one of the big cabins there that slept 12 or so, valued at $744.00 only went for $50.

    If he can get ahold of more Vikings stuff your friend could probably do better with a charity auction on here.

    That's a great idea!

    Although it would ruin any chance of adding more stuff to my collection at a song.

    I'll give you $11 bucks for the whole lot!


    Congrats!
    Looks like some pretty cool stuff!
    I'd much rather see the Packers miss the playoffs because of their talent then because of their injuries.
