1994 & 1995
Osborne was on the door step to winning a National Title on many occassions, but each time, something happened to prevent that allusive Title
But, then, during the last 5 years of his career, he won Three National Titles and played for a fourth and almost played for a fifth. Truly a glorious time in the history of the Nebraska program.

But, a little history always helps understand memorabilia
Nebraska won an emotional National Title in 1994
Many of the same players were coming back, like Tommie Frazier, Brook Berringer, Lawrence Phillips and many people on defense.
The big question was the Offensive Line. In 1994, the Offensive Line (considered the best ever in Nebraska Football History) was spectacular, but everyone except one graduated. Could Milt Tenopir put together a good offensive line. Not only did he put together an offensive line, the offensive line in 1995 did not give up a single sack all season long. Still not considered as good as 1994, but right next to them in overall talent and performance.
But, early in 1995 the drama started with Lawrence Phillips making national news when he pulled his girlfriend from Scott Frost's apartment who was redshirting in 1995, and proceeded to drag her down the stairs by her hair.
He was quickly suspended from the team and asked to undergo anger management.
Many people wanted him kicked off the team permanently, but Tom Osborne took a paternal approach and worked with Lawrence. In stepped a true freshman - Ahman Green and two other I-Back, Clinton Childs and Damon Benning. By committee the I-Back position was solid along with Senior Jeff Mackovicka and his younger brother Joel Mackovicka opening holes from the fullback position.
The team in 1995 - with a healthy Tommie Frazier and strong Back-up in Brook Berringer was simply dominant. The starters were normally pulled half-way through the 3rd quarter and still outscored their opponents by a large margin.
Nebraska ranked #1 was invited to play undefeated and #2 ranked Florida Gators in the Fiesta Bowl, which was the first BCS National Championship Game.
By now, Lawrence Phillips was back on the team and simply dominant again. The Huskers simply demolished the Florida Gators by a score of
62 to 24
The score could have been ever worse, but Osborne pulled his starters and let everyone plan. At the end, Brook Berriger was next to the goal line and he simply took a kneel, rather than racking up more points. Osborne always was a gentleman.
This 1995 Nebraska Teams is considered one of the greatest college football teams of all time, along with the 1971 Nebraska Huskers.
Every member of the starting defense, except one, went on to play in the NFL and many of the younger players on defense became starters in future years and they went onto play in the NFL. Osborne has truly assembled powerful and mightly team in 1995.
That is the background to Osborne's second National Title and the Fourth in school history.

On Auction Style Listings we request payment within 7 days via paypal
On our Fixed Priced items, we request payment when you check out and use the Buy It Now Option.
This will soon be a new policy on Ebay
We accept payment through paypal.
On boxes over 2 pounds or items that are large in nature, we ship by Fed Ex and our shipping price includes Fed Ex shipping with insurance and tracking. That means we must ship to a physical address. This address can be a home address or work address. Fed Ex DOES NOT SHIP TO P.O. BOX.
If your paypal address contains a Post Office Box, when you make payment you can select a "Gift Address" and include your physical home address or physical work address.
Thus, on heavy or large items, when you make your paypal payment, you must furnish us the physical address on your payment.
If an item is heavy (2 pounds or more) or large and you still wish to have an item shipped to a post office box, email us and we will tell you the cost of that shipping, which will be more than Fed Ex, because we get a corporate discount and we pass that savings onto you. Our intent is to save you money. But, if you have special shipping requirements, we must charge for the actual cost of those requirements.
We have had a rash of internatonal bidders bid on our items without reading our policy on shipping.
We will not alter our shipping policies even though you email and ask us to ship by first class or flat rate postage.
Only bid if you are willing to pay the priority mail rates.
We give our reasons below.
Based on the policies of both Ebay and Paypal, items shipped domestically and internationally must be shipped with tracking information in order for both the SELLER and BUYER to be protected by the Paypal Protection Plan. This requires that an item shipped internationally be shipped by priority mail. The cost to ship a little envelope is now almost $30.00 for many countries and it increases for size and weight. We realize it is expensive to ship from one country to another, but those are the rates handed to us and you must be willing to pay them if you bid. We will not ship by First Class Mail because tracking and insurance is not available with this type of shipping. We will not ship by Priority Flat Rate either, because tracking and insurance is not available with Flat Rate Postage. We wish there were more financially feasible ways to ship from one country to another and still have tracking and insurance to protect both the buyer and seller but there are no other options at this time. Again, Flat Rate Priority does not offer tracking. So, please understand that we will follow the policy of Ebay and Paypal and ship with tracking - which means we only ship by Priority Mail to other countries and this is expensive. If you bid, please understand these costs. We will not change or alter this policy, because more and more people realize they can make a claim if no tracking was provided in the shipping and if no tracking is provided, a Seller will have the entire amount of money taken from their paypal account. We have already lost over $1200 from these false claims and we can no longer afford to ship an item without tracking.
We wish Ebay and Paypal would change their policy, but until they come up with a different policy, we will follow their policy which states, Sellers must provide proof of their shipment in the case of a claim. Sending the item by priority mail with tracking is the least expensive way to do this and provide proof and tracking that the item was sent and delivered.
We also must clearly state that our shipping charges do not include other fees that you may incur, such as custom fees, duties and taxes that your local country may impose on all packages coming into the country. There is also often delays in international shipping. We cannot control how long it will take for an item to arrive.

Here is a little information about our business.
To help everyone understand our type of business we need to inform bidders that we sell used items, our items come from people and individual collectors and not companies. The items are not new in the box and nothing we have ever sold has been perfect or mint. We try and list any major defect - but every item has been used and will show a degree of wear. And, sometimes it is hard to describe the degree of wear or use and everyone's perception and standards are different. So, if you are concerned about specific details of any item, please email us and we will try and answer your questions. We say this because some people believe that when they buy items on ebay they expect them to look new - even if they are 50 years old. So please understand that our items are old and used and none are perfect.
