1. Vikings team autographed football 1970's vintage - $75

I have for sale a rare 1970's vintage team autographed football from the Minnesota Vikings glory years of the 1970's. The football is a high quality leather football in excellent shape, the football does not hold air but it keeps it football shape for display. The signatures are silk-screened on the ball and it's an official NFL product. This would make a great gift for a Vikings fan

Some of the more notable signatures are Bud Grant, Carl Eller, Fred Cox, Ron Yary, Gene Washington, Oscar Reed, Allen Page, Dave Osborn, Gary Larson, Bobby Bryant, Bobby Lee, Mick Tingelfoff, Bob Grim , Bill Brown and many more. About 50 total signatures.

Some useful tech terms:
Magnification (Power): The magnification of a telescope is determined by dividing its focal length by the focal length of the eyepiece being used. For example, a 500mm telescope with a 5mm eyepiece would magnify objects 100x. Thus, a telescope can provide nearly any magnification required depending on the focal length of the eyepiece used. 
Objective Lens Size (or Aperture): The size of the telescope's objective lens, or aperture, limits the amount of power that can be used effectively. As the magnification of an object increases, the brightness of the image decreases. This is because the light gathered by the telescope is being spread over a larger area. 
Focal Length: The measured light path of the optical system (tube length), typically measured in millimeters. 
Yoke Mount: A u-shaped altaz mount. Altaz mounts move up-down and left-right. 
Finderscope: On most astronomical telescopes a lower powered finderscope with a wider field of view lets the user quickly locate the object to be viewed by the high-magnification main telescope.
