Clemson University Tigers

Clemson University

Clemson University Tigers
STADIUM: Memorial Stadium
EST DATE : 1896



The Clemson football program has enjoyed consecutive winning seasons 11 times in the past 12 years entering the 2012 campaign, reminding fans of the glory years of the 1980s. During that incredible decade, the Tigers posted an 87-25-4 composite record and were the fifth winningest Division I team. A 12-0 record in 1981, including a victory over No. 4 Nebraska in the Orange Bowl, gave the school its only national championship. Atlantic Coast Conference titles were earned in 1981, ’82, ’86, ’87, ’88, '91 and 2011, and the Tigers won 10 games in each of four straight years (1987-90) and five consecutive bowl games following the 1986-90 seasons. Overall, Clemson has earned 18 conference titles and two division championships (2009 and 2011), and has won 16 bowl games. The Tigers began playing football in 1896 and had its first undefeated season and claimed its first Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association title in 1900. Clemson garnered Southern Conference championships in 1940 and 1948, posting an 11-0 mark in the latter year. The team was stellar again in the late 1950s, going 38-13-2 from 1955-59, and again in the late 1970s, with a 27-8-1 mark from 1977-79. Thirteen times Clemson has been ranked among the top 12 in the final AP poll. The Tigers play their home games at 80,301-seat Memorial Stadium, which opened in 1942. Clemson has a winning percentage of over .710 at “Death Valley,” which witnessed a record attendance of 86,092 for a 1999 game against Florida State. A memorial to the Clemson service personnel killed while on military duty was dedicated outside Gate 1 in April 2010.

Florida State Seminoles

Florida State Seminoles



STADIUM: Doak Campbell Stadium


From 1987 through 2000, Florida State University fielded a football team that was second to none. The Seminoles posted an incredible 152-19-1 record during those 14 seasons, captured two national championships, finished among the top five in the Associated Press poll each year, garnered nine Atlantic Coast Conference titles, won 11 bowl games and produced two Heisman Trophy winners. Featuring a 12-1 season in which Florida State led the nation in scoring offense and defense before edging Nebraska 18-16 in the Orange Bowl, the school's first national crown was earned in 1993. The second title (1999) included a 12-0 campaign, highlighted by a 46-29 Sugar Bowl victory over Virginia Tech that made the Seminoles the first team in AP poll history to go wire-to-wire as the No. 1 team in the country. Beginning just before the start of the 20th century, the Florida State football program was discontinued in 1905 when the school became an all-women's college. FSU went co-ed again after World War II, with football resuming in 1947. The gridiron team has won 15 conference titles, three division crowns and 25 of 41 bowl games (including the last four) through the 2011 season. The Seminoles have won nine-plus games in three of the last four seasons. Doak Campbell Stadium, home to the Seminoles, opened with a 40-7 triumph over Randolph-Macon College on October 7, 1950. It has a capacity of 82,300 (highest in the ACC) and is the largest continuous brick structure in the U.S. A record crowd of 84,392 witnessed a game there against Oklahoma September 17, 2011.

Major League Baseball

Major League Baseball

Major League Baseball (MLB) has been one of the most popular sports entities in the United States for its entire existence. The first recognized professional baseball team -- the Cincinnati Red Stockings -- was established in 1869, and the first official MLB game was played on April 22, 1876, at the Jefferson Street Grounds in Philadelphia. Also in 1876, the National League (N.L.) was founded, while the American League (A.L.) was established in 1901. Other major leagues whose records and statistics are included with those of the N.L. and A.L. are the long-defunct Union Association (1884), American Association (1882-91), Players League (1890) and Federal League (1914-15). From 1903 to 1960, the N.L. and A.L. consisted of eight teams each. The relocation and expansion era had actually begun in 1953 when the Boston Braves became the Milwaukee Braves. The next season, the St. Louis Browns moved to Baltimore to become the Orioles, and in 1955, the Philadelphia Athletics became the Kansas City Athletics. The most noteworthy moves came in 1958 when the Brooklyn Dodgers and New York Giants moved across the country to become the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants. A Dodgers player who had retired two years earlier was Jackie Robinson, who in 1947 had broken the color barrier and won the MLB Rookie of the Year award. From 1969, when MLB expanded into Canada to establish the Montreal Expos, to 1993, both the N.L. and A.L. consisted of East and West divisions. Since 1994, the leagues have had East, Central and West divisions. There are currently 30 teams in MLB, with 16 in the N.L. and 14 in the A.L. In 2013, the Houston Astros are slated to move from the N.L. Central Division to the A.L. West Division, which will even out the leagues at 15 teams each. Regular-season interleague play has been conducted since 1997, and the most recent expansion (Arizona Diamondbacks and Tampa Bay Devil Rays) occurred the next season. Teams now play 162 regular-season games each, followed by the Division Series, League Championship Series and World Series. Another high-profile MLB event is the annual All-Star Game, pitting representatives of the N.L. versus the A.L. since 1933. The Highland Mint produces a vast array of products licensed by MLB for all 30 teams. Included are PhotoMints, Coins, Coin Cards, Etched Acrylics, Ornaments, Keychains, and framed tickets, coins and lineup cards. Selected PhotoMints include game-used items, including pieces of jerseys, bases and on-deck circles.

New York Giants

In 1925, New York City sports enthusiast Tim Mara paid $500 for an NFL franchise.  Nearly 85 years later, the Giants had won seven league championships, 10 conference crowns and 15 division titles, while making 30 playoff appearances.  Success came quickly as the 1927 team featuring Jack McBride and Hinkey Haines posted an 11-1-1 record to win the NFL championship.  With players such as Harry Newman, Ken Strong, Ed Danowski, Tuffy Leemans, Hank Soar and Mel Hein leading the way, New York added league titles in the 1934 and '38.  The Giants competed in three NFL title bouts in the 1950s - winning in 1956 - through the play of Frank Gifford, Charlie Conerly, Kyle Rote, Mel Triplett, Alex Webster, Emlen Tunnell, Pat Summerall and Jimmy Patton.  Quarterback Y.A. Tittle earned league MVP honors in 1963.  During the 1980s, New York advanced to the playoffs five times and won Super Bowl XXI over Denver.  Team leaders included 1986 NFL MVP Lawrence Taylor, Phil Simms, Joe Morris, Mark Bavaro and Leonard Marshall.  Four years later, the Giants captured their sixth NFL championship with a 20-19 victory over Buffalo in Super Bowl XXV.  This team was sparked by Simms, Taylor, Ottis Anderson and Everson Walls.  New York also competed in Super Bowl XXXV following the 2000 season, losing to Baltimore, after being led by Kerry Collins, Tiki Barber, Amani Toomer, Michael Strahan, Keith Hamilton and Emmanuel McDaniel.  More postseason appearances occurred in 2002, '05 and '06, but it was the 2007 season that will be remembered vividly by New York fans.  The Giants won three road playoff games before upsetting previously unbeaten New England 17-14 in Super Bowl XLII.  Stars of this squad included Eli Manning, Brandon Jacobs, Plaxico Burress and Osi Umenyiora.

San Francisco 49ers Super Bowl Ticket and Game Coin Collection Framed

San Francisco 49ers

San Francisco 49ers, one of four teams in the NFC West. The 49ers play in Monster Park (formerly Candlestick Park), renamed for its corporate sponsor. The team, which takes its name from the gold rushers who flooded California in the late 1840s, wears jerseys of scarlet and gold.

Few NFL teams can boast the individual stars and strong teams that made the 49ers a dominant power in the 1980s and 1990s. While on their way to capturing five Super Bowl titles, the 49ers fielded such players as running back Roger Craig, wide receiver Jerry Rice, defensive end Fred Dean, and quarterbacks Joe Montana and Steve Young. Earlier stars include Hall of Fame members quarterback Y. A. Tittle and running backs Joe "The Jet" Perry and Hugh McElhenny.

The arrival of head coach Dick Nolan in 1968, the development of a sophisticated defense and the experience of quarterback John Brodie helped San Francisco reach the playoffs for three straight seasons beginning in 1970. In 1979, new head coach Bill Walsh and a brash rookie quarterback from Notre Dame named Montana ushered in an era of unprecedented stability and success for the 49ers. Two years after the team posted a league-worst 2-14 record, Walsh won coach of the year honors for steering San Francisco to 13 regular season wins and a victory over the Cincinnati Bengals in Super Bowl XVI. Carrying San Francisco into the Super Bowl was a last-minute touchdown pass from Montana to Dwight Clark that resulted in an NFC championship; it became known in football history as "The Catch." George Seifert, the 49ers defensive coordinator since 1983, became head coach in 1989 and the second rookie head coach in NFL history to lead a team to the Super Bowl. Under Seifert's leadership, Montana had his best season ever, winning an NFL Most Valuable Player award, his second of two league passing championships, and his league-record third Super Bowl MVP award.

Steve Young took over for Montana as San Francisco's starting quarterback in 1991, capturing the NFL passing title for the first of a league-record four consecutive times. Young's streak culminated in a Super Bowl XXIX victory over the San Diego Chargers, and his 112.8 passer rating in 1994 broke Montana's league mark.

Green Bay Packers

Green Bay Packers

The Green Bay Packers are one of the most successful franchises in sports history. Despite serious financial problems in the early years, the Packers survived and have now earned more championships (13) than any other National Football League team. Green Bay is the only franchise to win three consecutive titles twice, and 20 players who spent the majority of their careers with the Packers are in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. In 1919, Earl "Curly" Lambeau used the financial backing of the Indian Packaging Company to organize a professional football team, and the club joined the NFL in 1921. The Packers captured league crowns in three straight seasons beginning in 1929, thanks to the efforts of stars such as Johnny Blood, Lavie Dilweg, Cal Hubbard, Verne Lewellen and Mike Michalske. Coach Lambeau led Green Bay to three more titles in 1936, 1939 and 1944, with Arnie Harber, Clarke Hinkle and Don Hutson providing the heroics. In 1959, Vince Lombardi took over a squad that had won only once the previous season and produced five championship teams in nine years, adding two Super Bowl victories. Among the most memorable triumphs from the 1960s era - featuring Bart Starr, Paul Hornung, Jerry Kramer, Ray Nitschke, Willie Wood and many others - were a 37-0 pounding of the New York Giants in the 1961 NFL championship game and a 21-17 decision over Dallas in the 1967 "Ice Bowl" that led to a second consecutive Super Bowl victory. The Green and Gold returned to the top in the 1990s under coach Mike Holmgren, advancing to two Super Bowls and winning Super Bowl XXXI 35-21 over New England with catalysts such as Brett Favre and Reggie White. Behind the efforts of Aaron Rodgers, Greg Jennings, Charles Woodson and Clay Matthews, Green Bay earned a Wild Card berth in 2010, won three road playoff games and defeated Pittsburgh 31-25 in Super Bowl XLV. The Packers continue to honor their rich heritage in front of throngs of adoring fans at Lambeau Field. The Highland Mint produces a vast array of products licensed by NFL.

NBA Shop

 National Basketball Association

The NBA was founded in New York City on June 6, 1946, as the Basketball Association of America (BAA). In 1949, the National Basketball Association name was officially adopted when the BAA merged with the rival National Basketball League. Regarded by the league as the first official game in its history was a November 1, 1946, contest between the Toronto Huskies and the New York Knickerbockers at Maple Leaf Garden in Toronto. The first league champion was the Philadelphia Warriors (1947). The league had 17 franchises in 1949, but that number dwindled to eight by the 1953-54 season. Between 1966 and 1968, the NBA expanded from nine to 14 teams, including the addition of the Chicago Bulls, Milwaukee Bucks and Phoenix Suns. Following the 1976 season, the NBA and the rival American Basketball Association (ABA) reached a settlement in which four ABA teams -- San Antonio Spurs, Denver Nuggets, Indiana Pacers and New York Nets -- joined the NBA. The league expanded into Canada in 1995 with the addition of the Vancouver Grizzlies and Toronto Raptors. Many NBA teams have enjoyed successful eras through the decades. The Minneapolis Lakers won the NBA title five times during a six-year span (1949-54) to establish themselves as the league's first dynasty. The Boston Celtics earned 11 NBA championships in 13 seasons (1957-69), including eight in a row from 1959 to 1966; the Chicago Bulls claimed six titles in an eight-year period (1991-98); and the Los Angeles Lakers captured five crowns in nine years (1980-88) and another five titles in 11 years (2000-10). Among the significant rule changes that have occurred through the years were the 24-second clock being instituted in 1954 and the three-point shot being established in 1979. The NBA now includes 30 teams. The Highland Mint produces a wide variety of products licensed by the NBA for all 30 teams. Among them are PhotoMints, Coins, Coin Cards, Etched Acrylics, Ornaments and Keychains.
