    1970 Minnesota Vikings National Football League Certificate of Membership Plaque Signed by Pete Rozelle. One of the most significant events in the timeline of major professional sports history, the American Football League and National Football League announced their merger on June 8, 1966. Under the merger agreement, the leagues maintained separate regular season schedules until they were officially merged before the 1970 season, forming one league with two conferences.

    Presented here is the actual certification of membership that the Minnesota Vikings franchise received on February 1, 1970, after the official merger was executed. Purchased from a sale held by former Vikings owner Red McCombs, the wooden plaque measures at 19.5x22.5" and it is signed in light ink by Pete Rozelle, while medium chipping is displayed on the back. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
