Number One!

7.20.2008

Texas can claim the number one foam hand as their own. The foam hand isn't as old as I thought it would be. But the creator of the foam hand has a sweet story that involves rags to riches and that determined spirit for success.


In 1978 former high school teacher, geral fauss came up with the #1 foam hand, since then it has become a universal symbol for the phrase 'we're number one' and is among the most popular pieces of US sports merchandising.

The foam hand history.

(I couldn't resist posting the kapow in there.)
