Minn. company cashes in on Super Bowl gear


It has been more than 35 years since the Vikings played in the Super Bowl, but a company in Winona is once again representing Minnesota at the big game, WXOW reports. Employees at WinCraft Inc. are busy working around the clock to crank out Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers memorabilia.


"The Super Bowl gets here quick and you have to produce a lot of products in a short amount of time," Dick Pope, the owner of WinCraft, told KARE 11. "And once the Super Bowl is over, we'll ship products to the winning market."

WinCraft started making items for the National Football League in 1967, Winona Daily News reports.

The Ravens face the 49ers in New Orleans for Super Bowl XLVII on Sunday.
