The Minnesota Vikings are soliciting donations from fans for “old, rare, game-used and unusual” pieces of memorabilia to display inside their new stadium.
The interior of U.S. Bank Stadium will showcase the team’s history and the Vikings are exploring a Hall of Fame concept along the lines of what fans can find in Kansas City, Green Bay and even locally at Target Field, home of the Twins. The Vikings promise if you make a tax deductible donation and your item is used, your name will be emblazoned right next to the piece.
Don’t bother sending your Randy Moss rookie card. They’re only looking for things that museum-worthy like this game-worn jersey once donned by Hall of Fame center Mick Tingelhoff, but it doesn’t hurt to ask.
If you’ve got something you’d consider donating, you can contact them through a form on this page.
The fixed roof stadium will open next summer on the site where the Metrodome once stood.
