The Garnet & Gold shops are featuring a rare item for collectors of FSU memorabilia: an 11 x 17 print of the original Osceola icon, exactly as designed by John Roberge in 1971, and autographed by the artist himself. There's no cooler keepsake for your FSU man cave or present for the Noles in your life. At just $14.95, it's a steal.
Note, this is not a paid ad by Garnet & Great (though it is our favorite place for FSU stuff), nor are we making a penny on sales of the print. It's a heads up for Nole fans everywhere, especially those who will miss seeing the 43-year old logo that became the face of Florida State. And it's recognition of the artist who never got his due over the years. He is to FSU imagery what Tommy Wright, who passed away this week, was to lovers of the Seminole fight song.
