    1960s Big Red.  Not sure of exact date, but most likely from the early to mid 1960s due to the heavier straight top can with the pull tab opening. 


     Although normally associated the Nebraska and the "Big Red" the side of the can actually states that Big Red, Inc. was based at the time in Waco, TX.

    1970s Husker's Choice.  Not sure of exact date, probably mid 1970s due to the pull tab opening and the lighter aluminum can. Pull tabs gave way to the stay on tabs in the mid to late 1970s.

1997 Tom Osborne 25th Anniversary Season Coke cans

    Coke placed the 25th Anniversary Season logo on their cans in 1997 to commemorate Coach Osborne's 25 years as head coach of the Cornhuskers.  Little did we all know at the time that it would be his last season, and third National Championship in four seasons!  This 6-pack is in my collection.

    And a set of Big Red koozies to keep your pop cold! I'm guessing this set to be from the 1980s.
