History: In his first year as Head Coach, Edwin "Babe" Horrell led the 1939 UCLA Football team to an undefeated season and Pacific Coast Conference Championship (6-0-4). The Bruins backfield of Kenny Washington, Woody Strode and a transfer from Pasadena Junior College named Jackie Robinson, became nationally known as "The Gold Dust Gang." Robinson became the greatest athlete in UCLA history and would go on to be the first African American to break the color barrier in the modern era of Major League Baseball. The UCLA Bruins football team are currently members of the Pac-12 South Conference and play their home games in the legendary Rose Bowl, Pasadena, California.
Please note: Within the wool yarns, there may be some slight color variations. This is an inherent trait of the authentic wool we use. This should not be considered a flaw, but like the original garment, merely part of its charm.
