    Hi All,

    I'm a Michigan State alumnus, and I own a copy of 12 of 14 Big Ten school refrigerator magnets. You know the sort, about two inches tall, perhaps, made of flexible rubber, and using a cartoonish character mascot, either an animal or a person.

    As you can guess, one of the ones I don't have is the Nebraska magnet. The other one is Rutgers, and I have no idea if one of those has ever even existed. But, since I know the NU one's did, I need to get it.

    So I'm asking anyone here if such a magnet is still available for purchase, and if so may I have a link to a retailer where I can buy it. Or failing that, does anyone have a spare that they're willing to sell. No, no one is going to get rich selling me this! LOL And I'm not asking anyone to give up an heirloom or anything. But if these magnets can't be bought in stores because they're no longer made, and if someone has an extra, I'd like to have it. I'm linking the magnet that I want. If I could actually upload photos, I'd show my whole collection of B1G schools (yes, along with the Detroit pro sports and a few others). Oh, I could also swap if for a couple of Big Ten school micro-helmets (about the size to fit a GI Joe ... you've seen them). I'd give two such helmets for the magnet as a trade.

    Cheers to all, and I think that Hoiberg will have Nebraska winning sooner rather than later. We're happy to have his son as a member of the Spartan team! Good luck against the Hoosiers tomorrow.

    $200? I hope they include the penny.

    LOL, that's crazy. But that's also not the character I need. Is that thing on Ebay for a mascot that stopped being used even longer ago than the one I showed?

    It's 1960s/1970s Herbie Husker. You might have nightmares with some of the creepy old Herbie Husker stuff, particularly the stuffed Herbie I saw on eBay when searching for the magnet.

    Numerous places sell this one but it's not as nice as the one you pictured. Maybe it'll do until you find the right one.

    I agree with saluno22, I saw a couple of scary Herbie Husker magnets while searching. Even scarier that some of the actual versions of Herbie Husker over the years.

    I know that Nebraska fans will be thrilled to learn that I found my Herbie Husker magnet, which my wife found for me on Ebay. She did the "make an offer" option and her offer was accepted. I'm sure it was WELL below the huge prices that I've seen online.

    So, my quest to get a magnet for every Big Ten school is over, although I sadly had to make a compromise with Rutgers, since they do not seem to have ever licensed a mascot leaderboard magnet.

    So I'm done with my magnet quest, unless I find an old school Detroit Pistons one, replacing the lame horsehead logo from the Grant Hill era.

    Now I just have to sit and hope that we actually have college football this season!

    Its still better than the Minnesota one. Seriously, wth was that school thinking with having a happy little smiling gopher as their mascot?

    Stuff it! Classic Goldy rules!

    He won a close competition for the spot against Larry Loon and Wally Walleye, with his fierce Power Chitter putting him over the top.

    Wisconsin spelled "little" wrong.
