Tommy Mason was the first Viking.  In 1961, he was the team's first-ever draft pick.  So what Vikings collection would be complete without him?  He signed his 1963 Topps card in blue Sharpie, inscribing "NFL 61-72," and added a note on the back of my letter that he wanted to try calling me to see how I wanted the card signed, but couldn't since my number is unlisted.  Wow... that's a lot of effort from an NFL great.  Class act.  Thanks, Mr. Mason!
