FBInsulated_1970Helmet2.jpg (130404 bytes) 1970s Go Big Red

One of many items issued in 1970 to usher in the new helmet style by the Cornhuskers.  The Huskers switched from the NU on the side to the single N in order to avoid the appearance of copying the OU helmet style.

1970s Go Big Red Helmet Travel Mug

Another nice thermal mug, this one includes a red base that attaches to your car/truck dash with double-sided tape to keep your mug from sliding.  1970s era due to the design of the face mask, maybe another early 1970s item commemorating the helmet change.

1980s Go Big Red Helmet

Another very nice insulated mug, but with no specific season or event attributed to it. It does have a handle that you cannot see in the photo.  I am guessing that it came from the decade of the 1980s from the style of the helmet artwork.  Note the block "N" on the helmet.
