Go Tigers! 

Truman the Tiger is the official mascot of the athletic teams of the University of Missouri Tigers. Truman is named after U.S. President Harry S. Truman, who was from the state of Missouri. The mascot was named on September 12, 1986, though the use of a Bengal tiger as Missouri's mascot is traced to the 1890s. In 1864, while in the midst of the American Civil War, the board of curators suspended operations of the university. It was during this time that the residents of Columbia formed a "home guard" unit that became notoriously known as the "Fighting Tigers of Columbia". This name was given because of the group's steadfast readiness to fight against Confederate bushwhackers, hoping to plunder the city and university. After the end of the Civil War, an alumnus suggested the university's newly formed football team be called the "Tigers" out of respect for those who fought to defend Columbia.

These handcrafted Mizzou signs are made from 100% reclaimed wood.

Each sign is 13" x 13" in size.
