Miscellaneous
Pinbacks, Pins, Buttons, and Ribbons

updated 01/01/2017

The following is a collection of button and pinbacks that I've gathered or have received for the site.  Most are self explanatory, but I will fill in a little for those that need explanation [mouse-over].  I've grouped them chronologically as best I can, with pinbacks/buttons only to the top, pinbacks with ribbons next, with pins at the bottom.  If you have others, please contact me

[1940s pin - Chad Miller] 1940s Red Hat Pledge Pin. This pin came from the late 1940s during a down period for the Huskers, and increasing show of bad sportsmanship. This was an attempt to reverse that trend despite fewer wins compared to the glory days prior to the war years. I believe this image came from a Bob Ihrig auction.
