Vintage Large UGA Bulldog Figural Face Pin Brooch Pendant - image 1 of 3

His name is UGA and he's the English bulldog mascot for the University of Georgia athletic teams.

The first mention of "Bulldogs" in association with Georgia athletics occurred in 1901 at the Georgia-Auburn football game played in Atlanta. The Georgia fans wore a badge saying 'Eat'em Georgia' and a picture of a bulldog tearing a piece of cloth. It wasn't until 1920 that the nickname "Bulldog" was used to describe the athletic teams at the University of Georgia. A sportswriter for the Atlanta Journal wrote a story about school nicknames for football teams and proposed...The Georgia Bulldogs would sound good because there is a certain dignity about a bulldog, as well as ferocity.

Shortly thereafter, another news story appeared in the Atlanta Constitution in which the name "Bulldogs" was used several times to describe the Georgia football team and the nickname has been used ever since.

This large silvertone pin does have teeth, showing some potential ferocity under the ~G~ hat.

Pin measures 2 1/2 by 3 inches. It can be worn as a pin or a pendant. It's in excellent vintage condition.

Great pin for UGA fans, bulldog lovers, anyone whose initial is ~G~.
