After 30 years of teaching, it was time to move in a different direction. That direction led me to my other love and passion. That being said, I looked at my 50 years of sport collectables and the answer was right in front of me.
Growing up in South Bend and my love for Notre Dame was the key to my inventory. Items such as my extensive Rockne collection to present day items were logged and marked for sale.
With help from my brother John and son Andrew, Augie's Locker Room opened July 1, 2007. We are located a quarter mile from Notre Dame at 2036 South Bend Ave. Many of our items have been on display at the South Bend Center for History, Rockne; Crossing the last chalkline, and the College Football Hall of Fame.
We have an exclusive Jerry McKenna Rockne bust which contains metal from a carriage made by Rockne's dad Lars, a piece of the ill fated plane that crashed with Rockne on board, and a piece of the Golden dome.
Come view the Rockne room and see many more one of a kind vintage memoribilia. If we can answer any questions for you, don't hesitate to contact us. Go Irish!
Come visit Augies on Notre Dame Home weekends. Call to schedule an appointment. Call for updated store hours and specials.
