Harry Husker Playing Cards

     Double set of playing cards circa 1970, manufactured by Brown & Bigelow, St. Paul, MN.  On my set, the 10 through Ace are yellowed (antiqued?) while the Jokers and 2-9 cards are brighter, which gives the deck a layered look when you put the cards in order by suit.  Pretty neat. I would guess that these decks were (originally) put out between 1965 and 1973 (period when Harry was officially used). If anyone has any more info, please let me know.


1971 WOW Radio and TV

Hawaii Game Playing Cards

     Complimentary set of playing cards for use to pass the time during the trip to Hawaii sponsored by WOW to see the defending and still #1 Cornhuskers play the Rainbow Warriors of Hawaii.  The Huskers were coming off of their big win over Oklahoma in the Game of the Century, and went on to win easily 45-3.

1973 Nebraska Playing Cards

     This standard deck of cards includes fifty-one cards of players, two cards (the jokers) showing a packed Memorial Stadium, and one card picturing coach Tom Osborne.  A total of twenty-four members of the 1973 Nebraska team went on to play professionally: fourteen in the NFL, three in the CFL, and seven in the World Football League. Nineteen of those players are included in this deck of playing cards.

Thanks to Mike Thomas of Nearmint's Vintage Football Card Blog for the contribution.  Go to his site to see a few player cards and Tom Osborne.

 


Lincoln Tour & Travel

Kickoff Classic Playing Cards

     Complimentary set of playing cards for use to pass the time during the trip to the Meadowlands to watch the Huskers take on the Texas A&M Aggies in August 1988.  Great way to start the season, as the Huskers beat the Aggies from the Southwestern Conference 23-14.

Omaha World Herald

Harry Husker Playing Cards

     This is a complete guess on the time-frame, but probably late 1970s or early 1980s. Though Harry Husker was no longer the official mascot starting in 1973 when Tom Osborne took over the reigns as head coach from Bob Devaney (Herbie took over, too!) Harry was still in use in different forms by local newspapers and such well into the early 1980s..
