History: The 1939 Missouri Tigers football team captured the Big Six Crown and were led by legendary quarterback "Pitchin' Paul" Christman. Christman finished third in the Heisman Trophy voting that year and set many passing records for the Tigers. Christman is a member of the College Football Hall of Fame and had a successful career in the NFL leading the Chicago Cardinals to a Championship in 1947 as part of the "Million Dollar Backfield." Today, the Mizzou Tigers are members of the SEC (Souteastern Conference) Eastern Division and play their games at Faurot Field in Memorial Stadium, Columbia, Missouri.
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.
