1999 NCAA National Championship items

Yes Uconn! Yes UConn! - 1999 Final Four Highlights

No better way to remember UConn's Championship season than with this official video from the NCAA.



1999 NCAA Championship Game - VHS 1999 NCAA Championship Game - UConn vs. Duke (VHS)

As far as I know there is no official source for a VHS tape of the complete game - only the highlight tape (above) is available. However, I have seen copies made available via eBay and, if that doesn't pan out, you could always try asking on The Boneyard or the UConn-BBall email discussion list if someone could make you a copy.



Dare To Dream Dare to Dream : Connecticut Basketball's Remarkable March to the National Championship

Excellent book. Easy to read, reads quick, and has lots of stuff I'd never heard discussed before. Defintely worth reading.



UConn-Bball Star 99 UConn-Bball clothing

A special "Star 99" version of the UConn-Bball logo is available on a wide variety of clothing items from Periwinkle Communications, the host of the UConn-Bball email discussion list.



Husky 2000 Basketball Calendar Husky 2000 Basketball Calendar

Officially licensed calendar. While not a calendar of the championship season, it does have some shots from the championship game.



USPS Commemorative Envelope USPS Commemorative Envelope

Available for $6.50 at any post office in Connecticut, I believe. Has the Final Four logo and the final score of the game and is postmarked March 29th in St. Petersbeurg, FL. As of mid-August the Norwich post office still had over half of the envelopes they started with. New London only had a handful left as of mid-October. Gales Ferry post office has some left as well.



Championship Floor Championship Floor

Yup, that's right. You can buy plaques made from the actual floor from the Tropicana Field Stadium.



Husky Direct Husky Direct (UConn Co-Op)

LOTS of stuff available from the HuskyShop at the UConn Co-Op!

The Husky Road to St. Petersburg The Husky Road to St. Petersburg

This package consists of two audio cassettes. It was put together by WTIC-AM 1080, the flagship station of the UConn Radio Network. It includes sound bytes from every game including regular season, the Big East Tournament, and the NCAA Tournament plus a complete rebroadcast of the Championship Game all with Joe D'Ambrosio and Wayne Norman followed by the postgame show. It and other NCAA Championship memorabilia was available from Bob's Stores but they may no longer have these tapes at this point. However, you may be able to find it on eBay.



Sports Illustrated NCAA Championship issue of Sports Illustrated

This is the issue of Sports Illustrated magazine the week following UConn's victory. I still see it on some magazine racks around the state, and I assume you can still order it as a back issue from SI.



SI Commemorative Issue Sports Illustrated's University of Connecticut National Champions Collector's Edition

This is a leather-bound version of the special commemorative issue of Sports Illustrated magazine printed the week following UConn's victory. I still see the much-cheaper magazine version of this on some magazine racks around the state.



Final Four Program 1999 Men's Final Four Program

This is the actual program from the Final Four weekend. Other NCAA Championship memorabilia is also available from the NCAA.



Final Four Poster NCAA Championship Tip-Off Poster

This poster is a photo of the entire Tropicana Field Stadium taken at the exact moment the opening tip-off was thrown up. Great shot. It's also available as a 800 x 517 JPG file which makes a great desktop picture for your computer. Other NCAA Championship memorabilia is also available from the St. Petersberg Times, the host newspaper of the Final Four.



Final Four Program The Sports Store

They've got a UConn 1999 National Champs Commemorative Pin (picture to left) plus a watch, and a Championship hat and a commemorative plaque.



Total College Sports Network Total College Sports Network

Both National and Big East Championship merchandise available.



UConn cap RallyCaps.com

They've got some UConn hats. They aren't National Championship hats, but some of them are pretty good looking. They also have a lot of different hats for NCAA, MLB, NFL, NHL and NBA teams, plus some pretty odd hats like the Fighting Squirrels and the Sand Gnats.
