Three years ago, CN assisted with a campaign to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Nebraska. That campaign centered around Nebraska joining the Big Ten Conference.

This week a new campaign starts that is tied in with the upcoming historic homecoming game against Illinois on Sept. 27 that will also salute the 125th anniversary of football at Nebraska.

To honor that, and to also raise funds for which raises money for youngsters who have life-threatening medical conditions, Nikco Sports has created a limited edition Cornhuskers football to celebrate 125 years of Nebraska football.

Only 2,014 of these special, 125th anniversary Nebraska footballs will be produced to raise funds for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Nebraska. Each is priced at $99 and includes a handsome acrylic display case along with a numbered certificate of authenticity.

For each football sold, $7.50 will be donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Nebraska.

Several of the panels have all sorts of historic info on the Cornhuskers, plus there is one panel that has a beautiful panoramic color photo of Nebraska's football stadium that stretches the entire length of that panel. The three panels are shown below.

The football can be ordered through the Nikco Sports web site, or fans can call 1-800-345-2868.

Everything is officially licensed and comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
