    Some birthday help for my nephews

    I have three nephews who are all big Cyclone fans. They range from 6-12 yrs old. I think I came up with a cool idea for their birthdays.

    What I've already checked into is getting the Big 4 coaches to sign one item all together. It's a "go." I just need some ideas what I can get them to sign.
    I thought of getting a picture of the logo and getting that signed.
    I just don't want it do be sport specific since I'm looking to get four different signatures on it.

    Let me know if you have any ideas or can point me in the right direction.

    Thanks.

    Re: Some birthday help for my nephews

    How about one of those tin signs that say something along the lines of Cyclone Parking Only? Just an idea...

    I think a t-shirt or sweat shirt that has "property of Iowa State Ath. Dept."

    How about a aerial picture of both Hilton and Trice in the same picture and have all 4 of them sign it.

    How about a banner, such as the one below.

    Re: Some birthday help for my nephews

    I think a framed picture of the old fashioned Cy symbol would be pretty sweet.

    Re: Some birthday help for my nephews

    I like the idea of a framed picture of the bird in a blender or the walking Cy. Just as a reminder, 6-12 year old boys tend to be rather... tough on their belongings. A single shirt would cause in-fighting over who got to wear it (if they are as big of fans as you say) and even with three shirts, they would wear/wash them out pretty quickly. I recommend something like a poster or a sign that can be hung on a wall as decoration. It will last a lot longer (and will stay more valuable as the kids get older, if any of the coaches bring themselves into consistent national prominence).

    It's nice of you to do something like this for your nephews!


    True and Valiant

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    how about a very expensive, extremely fragile antique for the kids to cherish? (sarcasm)

    This was an idea that was brought to me. Any idea where I could get something like that?

    Re: Some birthday help for my nephews

    My kids love the signed shirts and hats that they have. They wear them proudly. We got them at a basketball camp last year.

    Actually, that is a great gift for the Cyclone fan: a sports camp for a long weekend at ISU.

    Re: Some birthday help for my nephews

    How about paid tuition to Iowa State University?
    You've got plenty of time to save up.
