"SON THIS IS HOG COUNTRY" / Machine-gun wielding "Hambo"
« on: April 14, 2018, 10:41:46 pm »

I'm too young to have seen the mid- '80s shirts like this one and the machine gun wielding "Hambo." Anybody have any pics of these gloriously retro masterpieces?

I find the statement about the name not being copyrighted amusing. I suppose that is technically true, but you have so much as a recognizable image or font that is even close to what they use and see how fast they hit you with a C and D. Not saying all Universities don't, just that that statement rings a little hollow.

Yeah, there has been an absolute sea change in terms of intellectual property rights protection in the college sports industrial complex. And, yes, it's not just Arkansas.
I've been told certain companies which had the "Razorback" name in their title in this era (e.g. Jim's Razorback Pizza) were grandfathered in and allowed to keep using the name w/o paying a license. I haven't actually investigated this, but would be interested in what y'all know..

My poster is in rough condition. Wish it hadn’t been all folded up back in the day.
