M_Mega_50s_JohnnyHusker_white.jpg (261303 bytes) 1950s Megaphone

Same as the one above, but white artwork with a white plastic mouthpiece. These may have been given to children entering the stadium in the 1950s.  If you know of anyone who can confirm that, please let me know.

Mountain Dew Megaphone

I'm guessing that this megaphone comes from the mid '50s from comparing the Dew character with those on bottles from the mid '50s, and similarity in style to the megaphone above. It stands a little over 7" high, made of heavy duty plastic.  

If you have more info, please share!

Hamm's Beer Megaphone

I'm guessing that this piece comes from the 1967-1969 seasons from the "NU" pattern similar to the helmet decals from those years. It stands a little over 7" high, appears to be identical to the Mountain Dew version above, just missing the metal collar.

If you have more info, please share!

M_Mega_89mugaphone.jpg (135191 bytes) 1989 Muga-phone

     This is a unique megaphone that is actually a mug. It has a picture of Herbie and it is a mug as you take the lid off but you can also take the bottom off and it turns into a megaphone. This one is signed by players of the 1989 Cornhusker football team. Also listed with the plastic steins and mugs.

Thanks to Arnold Remington for the photo and info!
