They may not be able to say ‘War Eagle’ just yet, but your little ones can have their own version of Aubie the Tiger! Gamezies worked diligently to accurately depict this collegiate favorite. This college mascot first appeared as a cartoon character on the Auburn/Hardin-Simmons football program cover in October 1959. Aubie the Tiger is in his 37th season as a spirit leader and goodwill ambassador for Auburn University. He's a nine-time UCA National Champion, the most of any mascot, and the first to be inducted into the Mascot Hall of Fame.
