“Pin-Up” of the Week: 1959 Liberty Bowl Pin – Penn State vs. Alabama


On December 19, 1959 the first Liberty Bowl game took place at Philadelphia Municipal Stadium in Philadelphia, PA.  Penn State took on Alabama in a battle of defenses ultimately winning 7-0.  This was Bear Bryant’s first bowl appearance.  At the time, Rip Engle was the coach for Penn State.

This 1959 Liberty Bowl pin isn’t the easiest piece of college memorabilia to find.  One recently sold for over $100.00.
