The Gophers released game 1 Uni today, and to our surprise, a brand, spanking new helmet! From matte maroon, to gold sparkle. They also added a Row The Boat and Ski U Mah on a gold center stripe. Fantastic!
We recently picked up one of our favorite Big Ten helmets of all time, an early 70's Michigan clear shell helmet. These are fairly rare as the shells cracked and had to be disposed of. This bad boy displays a good amount of use, but no cracks! While we primarily collect Minnesota Gopher gear, our Big Ten helmet collection is one of the best in the nation in our opinion. Go to the other helmets page and check them out. Some are one of kind examples, or one of the very few in existence.
We just acquired one of the most rare, and finest pieces of Gopher football memorabilia known to mankind; a 1960 Rose Bowl/National Championship ring. This ring belonged to Dan Powers, an OL out of Owatonna, MN. This is the only example we've seen on the market in our 35+ years of collecting.
