Two recognizable symbols, the unique University of Minnesota "M" and its cheerfully confident mascot, Goldy Gopher, adorn this premium cast stone statue dedicated to UM and all its Golden Gopher fans. Ready to occupy your Gopher Den, Goldy can be your symbol of UM athletics today.

Since 1857, Minnesota has been known as the "Gopher State", while the university's athletic teams adopted the moniker of Gophers in the 1920s and further, the Golden Gophers during their powerful football era of the 1930s. Goldy was first seen in 1952, with his present appearance and name coming in the early '70s.

Outfitted in official UM maroon and gold or in our regal vintage or rich bronze finishes, Goldy will be a hit at all your Minnesota parties, whether it be football, basketball or hockey gatherings. If you order now, you can receive him without paying for shipping and faster than you can yell "Ski-U-Mah!"
