Wally Hilgenberg 1974 Topps #489 Minnesota Vikings Autographed Signed Football Card DECEASED
Autographed football card of former Minnesota Viking...Wally Hilgenberg.
It's not perfect as it's a classic 1974 Topps football card...off center from top to bottom...off center from side to side. Either way, it should work well in your collection until you can upgrade it with a NM-Mint one down the road.
Great looking autographed football card signed with a purple Sharpie.
This is a nice looking autographed football card, which I had in my own personal collection. Over the past 30 years, I have accumulated a number of autographed baseball and football cards and now I am beginning to part with a few duplicates.
We have acquired these autographed cards either in person, thru the mail or as part of large autograph collection purchases.
In most cases the autographed cards that we have are in excellent condition. If for some reason, you purchase an autographed baseball card and are not satisfied with the condition, you can return it in the same original condition for a full refund.
We are putting together our own autographed card sets for our personal collection and these in inventory are duplicates. We intend on someday obtaining the other cards that we don't have in our own personal collection. The sale of any of these autographed cards will go back into financing our own autographed set collections.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia...
Walter Hilgenberg (September 19, 1942 – September 23, 2008) was a professional American football player.
Hilgenberg was born in Marshalltown, Iowa. His family moved to Wilton (then known as Wilton Junction) where he grew up and graduated from Wilton High School. He attended the University of Iowa, where he starred on both sides of the line of scrimmage, as a linebacker and as a guard. He played 16 seasons in the National Football League, with the Detroit Lions and Minnesota Vikings.
In 1964, he was drafted in the fourth round by the Lions. In 1968, he was traded from the Lions to the Pittsburgh Steelers, but was waived before ever playing a game in Pittsburgh. After being waived by the Steelers, Hilgenberg was picked up off waivers by the Vikings, for whom he played until he retired after the 1979 season. During that time, he was one of 11 players to play in all four of the Vikings' Super Bowl appearances (Super Bowl IV, Super Bowl VIII, Super Bowl IX, Super Bowl XI).
Hilgenberg's daughter Kristi was Miss Minnesota Teen USA 1998.
Hilgenberg's grandson, Luke, is currently a linebacker for the Iowa Hawkeyes.
Hilgenberg died on September 23, 2008, after battling amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or Lou Gehrig's disease  for several years.
