Great find. Those extremely rare ceramic statues were cast in 1949 by Adah Art Studios of Dallas. (I only know of 4 remaining in existence) They were based on a cartoon of North Texas coach Odus Mitchell that Bill McClanahan had previously written for the Dallas Morning News.

That statue was subsequently the basis for the rare 1960's plaster NTSU bobbleheads that were made in Japan.

Here's the Bill McClanahan eagle used later in an NTSU decal.

The Bride often selects North Teas collectibles as birthday or Christmas gifts. A pennant, probably from the inaugural January 1, 1948 Salad Bowl football game matching North Texas vs Nevada is one of this year's birthday gifts.

It will pair well with the 1948 Salad Bowl football programs that she has gifted to me.

Damn, sounds like she got a steal then. She said she only paid $45 for it.
