The University of Notre Dame was founded in South Bend, IN in 1842. While the school is widely regarded for their academics, they are also well-respected for their Fighting Irish football team. The Fighting Irish have 22 national championships, tied for most in the Football Bowl Subdivision, though they only claim 11. They have seven Heisman winners and the movie Rudy. This vintage Notre Dame Champion hat, deadstock with original tags still attached, is perfect for any alumnus or fan.
