1970 Vintage St. John's Redmen Mug

By Vintage Brand™ not affiliated with or sponsored by St. John's Redmen
A group of St. John's University students went out and found the original Redman mascot standing in front of a cigar store. "Chief Blackjack" made his first public appearance in his new position at the St. John's-Catholic University football game at Ebbets Field. When the underdog Redmen went on to a 22-0 victory, there was no turning back. Although the nickname "Redmen" was instituted because the athletes at St. John's wore red, and did not have an original basis in Native American culture, it did evolve into a nickname that referenced Native American symbology. After seven decades of the nickname “Redmen” as the symbol of St. John’s Athletics, the decision to change its nickname occurred in 1994. St. John's wanted to make a change that would stay true to its tradition, but also be distinctive and unique. Thus, the new nickname Red Storm was born.
