1948 Vintage Cal Bears T-Shirt

By Vintage Brand™ not affiliated with or sponsored by Cal Bears
A successful tour through the nation's Midwest and East by Cal's track & field team in 1895 is credited with the inspiration of the university's "Golden Bear" nickname. Since the grizzly bear is a symbol of the state of California, it was appropriate that the track team displayed a banner on their tour that featured a golden grizzly. Continuing the domination they had enjoyed on the West Coast, the Cal team struck gold during their eight-meet tour by winning five of the events. Since that defining moment, Cal's athletic teams have been called the Cal Golden Bears. Oski the Bear (Oski) is the official mascot of the University of California, Berkeley ("Cal"), representing the California Golden Bears. Named after the Oski Yell, he made his debut during Cal Football's season-opener against St. Mary's College on September 27, 1941. Prior to his debut, live bears were used as Cal mascots.
