Sports business reporter Darren Rovell reported that in the first 12 hours after the Tigers hoisted the trophy, LSU backers were already on the way to buying more gear through Fanatics.com than the 2015 Ohio State team that established the high mark in sales.
Fans looking for memorabilia to commemorate LSU’s 42-25 victory over Clemson and the unforgettable perfect season do have quite a few options both on that site and other places.
Here’s a guide to some of the items you can snare right now and have delivered right to your door in a few days.
2019-20 College Football Playoff Program
Programs are among the most popular items for fans who collect college football memorabilia, in large part because there’s a pretty great bang for the buck. It’s a collectible that’s interactive, giving back far more than the cost to get one.
You can own a copy of the 2020 BCS national championship program, which includes stats, feature stores, rosters and more. These were sold at the game site in New Orleans but you can find several of them for sale by clicking here.
2019 College Football Championship Game Jersey Patch
You saw the patch on the player’s jerseys but there’s no need to buy a game jersey to get one. You can own the same type of patch for under $15.
Within minutes of the victory formation kneel down, you could order one of these, with the scores of every 2019-20 Tigers game. There are other variations, too. They come ready for hanging on your office wall or fan cave for a pretty modest price.
Joe Burrow SI For Kids Football Card
The record-setting quarterback won’t have any “normal” football cards for several months but he’s one of the athletes featured in the January 2020 issue of Sports Illustrated for Kids. Some of the cards, sheets and full magazines have made their way to eBay.
LSU National Championship Mini Helmets
Whether you just put it on display or take it around for autographs, mini helmets always make for popular pieces of memorabilia. The large, full-size helmet carries the national championship logo for $149.99. You can also go the mini helmet route. These can be had for under $40.
The old standby always looks good on the wall and you can grab an LSU championship pennant for $20-$25.
Ed Orgeron Autographs
There’s no one quite like Coach Ed. The man was made to coach the Bayou Bengals. He’s got a deal with Fanatics to sign LSU memorabilia and you can own a very nice autographed football, helmet, photo or other item for $169 and up. It beats standing in line or trying to track him down at an appearance.
National Championship Panoramic Photo
This 40″ panoramic photo captures the celebration of the Tigers’ fourth national title.
LSU National Championship Display Cases
Already have a great item, like a jersey, autographed football or helmet? You can buy a special National Champions logo display case to show it off.
LSU National Championship Apparel
If you’re more into wearing than collecting, LSU National Championship t-shirts and apparel are readily available. Some of them celebrate the title game, while others commemorate the entire season. T-Shirts and caps are typically under $35 with sweatshirts and other items running a little more. Fanatics has a special section here. You can also find a unique selection of LSU championship gear and collectibles at FOCO.com.
