Bid on a Tom Osborne-Signed 18" x 24" Canvas Print Replica Sports Illustrated Cover
You loved him as a Hall-of-Fame coach, respected him as a hard-working Congressman and welcomed him back as your athletic director.
Now, you can own and share something that will forever be framed in Tom Osborne's own heart and mind . . . the celebration of his first-ever national championship.
"How Sweet It Is!" screams a Sports Illustrated cover after Nebraska came back in the fourth-quarter to defeat Miami, 24-17, in the 1995 Orange Bowl.
The 18" x 24" canvas print, a replica of a Sports Illustrated cover, shows Osborne being carried off the field in Miami. Of all of the SI covers on Nebraska football, this is the most popular because it features one of college football's highest percentage winners ever. In 25 years as Nebraska's head coach, from 1973 to 1997, Osborne coached the Huskers to 255 wins, an average of more than 10 wins per season.
Osborne signed the canvas print, and the auction winner will receive a certificate of authenticity to keep or pass on to the recipient of this special piece of art.
Bidding for the signed SI cover begins at $250 and will end on Tuesday, Dec. 1, at 2:00 p.m. Only minimum incremental bids of $25 will be accepted.
** A $10 shipping fee will be added to the winning bid ** Funds generated from this auction will directly benefit the student-athletes within The University of Nebraska Department of Athletics.
