    1974 Super Bowl VIII Game Used Football - Dolphins vs. Vikings. In a star-studded contest featuring Larry Csonka, Nick Buoniconti and Bob Griese's Dolphins versus the Purple People Eaters of Minnesota, Super Bowl VIII was played on January 13, 1974 at Rice Stadium in Houston. Don Shula's Dolphins dominated the game, while proving victorious by a score of 24-7, while Phins fullback Larry Csonka was presented with the game's MVP honors.

    Offered here is a Wilson football that was used in the memorable game, and it was obtained by our consignor from Vikings staffer Steve Mund. Signed by the Vikings squad in black ink, the ball's signatures were deemed "unable to authenticate - sigs too light" by PSA/DNA, as they are not clear enough to verify.

    That said, the ball itself is rock solid, and many images from the game show that the ball's white stripes are exactly what was on the game balls for Super Bowl VIII. Superb wear exhibited throughout. Letter of provenance from consignor. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
