Minnesota Vikings mini-helmet. Hand-signed in white paint pen by Jim Marshall, Gary Larsen, Alan Page (HOF) and Carl Eller (HOF).

Purple People Eaters were the defensive line of the Minnesota Vikings from the late 1960s to the late 1970s. The term is a reference to a popular song from 1958, the efficiency of the defense, and the color of their uniforms. The motto of the Purple People Eaters was "Meet at the quarterback." The Purple People Eaters were a major factor in the post-season success of the Vikings from the late 1960s through the 1970s. The Purple People Eaters were one of the most identifiable front fours in National Football League history, with the "Fearsome Foursome" of the Los Angeles Rams during the 1960s and early 1970s, the "Steel Curtain" of the Pittsburgh Steelers during the 1970s, and the "New York Sack Exchange" of the New York Jets during the 1980s.

The lot / autograph(s) includes an official Purple People Eaters (PPE) hologram and matching COA for authenticity purposes.
