1942 Rose Bowl Pinback

In OSU’s only Rose Bowl victory to date, the 1942 Rose Bowl was the 28th Rose Bowl game where the Oregon State Beavers defeated the host Duke Blue Devils 20-16 in Duke Stadium.  Originally scheduled to be played in the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, it was moved to Durham, North Carolina, due to fears about an attack by the Japanese on the West Coast of the United States following the attack on Pearl Harbor. This rare pinback was a momento from that game and I have seen it in two slightly different variations.
