The campus goal for its United Way program this year is $140,000, and the motto has been "The Power of We." To help get closer to that goal, Nikco Sports along with Mounted Memories, has fashioned a special tribute plaque to honor not only the Auburn football tradition, but to give Auburn fans a chance to own a special piece of the live oak trees at Toomer's Corner, trees which were poisoned following the 2010 Iron Bowl game, a contest won by the Tigers over Alabama after trailing 24-0 in the 2nd quarter only to win it 28-27. The diseased trees were removed from Toomer's Corner on April 23, 2013.
The plague, pictured below, is a special tribute to those special trees at Toomer's Corner which were destroyed, trees which have held a special place in the hearts of Tigers fans for many years.
Beginning this week, a special 15 X 17 inch framed and matted plaque is being made available to the general public, with only 1,000 pieces produced. Each plaque is officially licensed and priced at just $99. The plaque features a beautiful collage photo of the tree in its original pristine beauty, the memorial and the campus. Inset into the matting along the lower portion of the presentation is a piece of the tree.
So now Auburn fans can own a special piece of history!
Each of the 1,000 plaques will be individually numbered, and will make an ideal gift idea for the upcoming holiday and Christmas season. The plaque also salutes Auburn's two national football titles won in 1957 and 2010 and the school's 7 SEC championships and 3 Heisman Trophy winners.
