IOWA HOMECOMING BUTTONS.
Metal badges, or pinbacks, that celebrate UNIVERSITY OF IOWA FOOTBALL HOMECOMINGS were first introduced in IOWA CITY in 1924 and have been produced continuously since then. Collecting these colorful pieces of tin has truly become an IOWA phenomenon...but now with the advent of EBAY, IOWA football fans around around the globe can build their unique collections of IOWA BADGES.
As recently as 1975, a complete set of IOWA HOMECOMING BADGES (1924-1975) was available for around $200. In 2004, that same set sold for almost $7,000!
Indeed IOWA HOMECOMING BUTTONS are a unique collector's item, but to true BLACK'N'GOLD HAWKEYE FANS, it's more than a profitable hobby, it's a passion!
