    Memorabilia

    I was just wondering what people would say is their favorite piece of ISU memorabilia that they own. Mine has to be either the authentic helmet signed by McCarney or the signed Seneca Wallace ball.

    I've got an authentic, signed helmet by Troy Davis.

    Re: Memorabilia

    My father was ill with leukemia, while he was going through his first round of chemotherapy at Mercy, before heading to Mayo, Cy personally brought my dad a team signed football with a personalized note from Dan wishing him well. It was neat seeing Cy in the hospital. Anyway, my dad did not win the fight and has since passed. Needless to say that football and note are my most prized cyclone memorabilia.

    Re: Memorabilia

    My wife entered a raffle at our local school and got me a limited edition ISU basketball signed by GMac and all of this year's team with the exception of Vette and Brister, of course. Gave it to me on my birthday last week. Very Nice!

    Re: Memorabilia

    I've got a framed and autographed #40 Fred Hoiberg jersey. Bought it back when they had very cool Cyclone Shootouts. Was able to go down on the floor with my dad to get the jersey and meet Fred.


    42-54 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.

    Re: Memorabilia

    I don't have anything signed or anything like that. I guess my favorite cyclone possession would be the Cyclone seat covers my girlfriend made for me in my 1968 Ford pickup she bought be last summer. She also made a Cyclone dash cover and bought Cyclone floormats. The truck was a suprise as well. It was sitting in my driveway when I returned from Iowa last summer. It is kind of my Cyclone mobile.

    Re: Memorabilia

    I was working at a brain injury center in Ankeny 2 years ago we had a little boy who was a huge ISU fan. In a coma, he always wore his ISU bandana, had an ISU blanket, and has ISU posters all over his room. He had a crappy little football that they used to put into his hands for sensory integration.

    I emailed Jamie Pollard about this kid and he gave me a free football with a few autographs on it. I just happend to be outside the IPF when coach Mac came out after practice. I asked him if he would sign the ball too. Very kindly he of course replied. He also took me inside to practice and asked his players to sign too. All the players were more than willing to sign the ball. I left with a free football loaded with well wishes and autographs.

    It was a quick reminder for me how good of people we have at ISU, as well as made his family very happy.

    Re: Memorabilia

    I kept my plastic soda cup from my first ISU basketball game back in the '70s. Kicking Cy on it.
    I also have a Cyclone logo headrest cover from the charter aircraft the football team took to Shreveport back in 2005. I ended up working on that aircraft before it left with the team, and they had some extras.


    I'm baaack! See my Hot Milk For Breakfast blog under Social Groups for more details

    Re: Memorabilia

    I've got a super piece..... I have the printing plates used to print the front page and interior continuation/photos/etc of Cael's Gold Medal performance in the Olympics, that was used by the Cedar Rapids Gazette the day after his victory. They are frame and it's signed by Cael.

    I also have a few team signed FB's and BB's, but the Cael printing plates have to be my all time favorite.

    Re: Memorabilia

    Iowa State hand towel that smelt like beer that I picked up before the 02 nebraska game. Had to hide it from my dad because he wanted to throw it. After we won I washed it and hung it on my wall.

    Re: Memorabilia

    It's a tie

    1) my pep band shirt from ISU's Sweet 16 appearance in San Antonio. I got most of the team to autograph the shirt. Cato, Willoughby, Klay Edwards, Jacy Halloway and Shawn Bankhead's autographs on it.
    2) Autographed Seneca Wallace picture given to me by a friend.
