Prototype Glass

This glass is like the set of six Tom Osborne commemorative glasses above. It has a different 25th anniversary logo on the front. They made the 250th win glass first, then they made the others. This is the original logo that was drawn up for the glasses. Only 4 of these prototypes were ever made. They decided to go with the more traditional logo that we see on the set of six glasses, as well as the other 25th anniversary memorabilia for Coach Osborne. This was a prototype glass that was not sold and only four of them were ever made.
