A brand, spanking new addition to the Gopherjereys.com collection. Mike Hohensee's 1984 Washington Federal's jersey. More info and photos on the pro jerseys page on the Our Collection tab.
Another long sought after item just added is this Danbury Mint HHH Metrodome, Gophers version (Vikings and Twins versions were also produced). Check this out with more photos on our memorabilia page of the Our Collection tab.
We recently added a beautiful new Penn State helmet from the mid 2000's to our collection. It's missing the air bladder and some padding, but an overall amazing helmet with the original Penn State chinstrap. Go to our Big Ten helmets page for more photos.
We've been adding numerous items to our collection, but when it's divided between three people, 2 states, and a 12 hour drive apart it takes awhile to get pics and uploaded to our site. At long last, numerous modern era jerseys have been added to our site. Go to the 2012-now section and bowl jerseys section to check out the roughly 8 new items added.
In yet another uniform surprise, the new Goldy helmet had a decal with the outline of the states of Texas and Florida to remember the recent Hurricane disasters and honor the victims. This was a very classy move by our football program and equipment staff.
Wow! Just Wow! For uniform junkies such as myself, this is a HUGE deal. This Saturday vs MTSU the Gophers will play MTSU wearing for the first time EVER, a Goldy Gopher helmet. Yes, the uni Gods have finally answered my prayers! After these many long years, a Goldy helmet! Goldy will be prominently displayed on one side, a block M on the other, with Goldy Gopher's tail coming up the back. It's doesn't get any better than this folks!
Week 2 vs Oregon State brought another uniform surprise, the Stormtrooper design. A white out uni that featured a new shiny white helmet vs the flat white they wore in the Texas bowl. This one also had a block M on both sides vs an M on one side, and a # on the other. This helmet did have the same designed stripe as the maroon helmet in the week 1 game, but in maroon instead of gold. The white jersey is very close the white jersey worn last season, but gone are the bricks from the #s. Here's a link to the official video release. https://twitter.com/GopherFootball/status/906677177697017856?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thedailygopher.com%2F2017%2F9%2F9%2F16282000%2Fminnesota-all-white-uniforms-oregon-state-stormtrooper
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.
