Bud Grant's biggest, best & last garage sale. Viking's stuff old & new, hunting, fishing, decoys, guns, outboard motor, snowmobile suits, helmets, antiques, clothing, furniture, books, pictures, many unique items.

“I hunt and fish a lot, so there’s a lot of hunting and fishing items,” Grant told CBS Minnesota. “I was a head coach for 35 years, so I have a lot of Vikings stuff.” One of the marquee items that Grant will auction off is a banner with his name on it from the actual Vikings' Ring of Honor. Grant says he's selling it because "I don't have a stadium to put it in." Here are specific dates and times the garage sale will be open, according to
