Now to shift gears a little, media guides aren’t the only items lurking around in my collection of NU gear. I recently ran across a series of giveaway items from the 1992-93 season which I think are fantastic. During that year Northwestern issued trading cards for each player. I can remember as a kid thinking this was awesome and I think it is something NU might want to think about again. It is often mentioned that Northwestern athletics are great events for kids and returning to this idea would only add to that notion. Besides, limited addition giveaways are cool to adults as well and anything that help markets your team and players can’t hurt.
In the next few days I'll talk about some other NU memorabilia items of which I’d love to see new versions.
