I came across a gopher on a football like the one on page 132 of the Red Wing Collectibles values updated 2008. It is about 2 1/2 inches tall and at it widest point about 3 inches the marking on the bottom is R. W. POTTERIES 1939 RED WING MINN. On the front it has a partial label that I can make out saying Rochester Minn. which I was not sure if the label is orginal or if some attached it. Is this a red wing piece and can someone tell me more about it? Thanks Cliff

Answer: Hi Cliff

it is a Red Wing item, I would guess the label is original. they were made for the Minnesota/Michigan football rivalry. Value should be somewhat close to what you have found in the book. thanks, steve n rose
