HISTORY OF
TIGER RAGS

How do you commemorate an undefeated Auburn football season? A big win over a rival? A play that seemed impossible? A long-awaited national championship?

Chances are you buy a t-shirt. Maybe even a couple of t-shirts – one to wear out, and one to hold onto as a keepsake. If you’re an Auburn fan, a Tiger Rags game shirt is one you recognize, designed to take you back to specific moments in time – the wins, the big plays, the we-almost-had-‘ems. Each shirt tells a story about Auburn, and it’s been our privilege to tell these stories for nearly four decades.

Tiger Rags began with nothing more than a manual printer, a cash drawer and the idea to print special t-shirts for Auburn football games.
It started with hanging gameshirts on an awning on the brick wall in front of our screen printing operation – the first one was a "Hook on This Horn!" shirt for a University of Texas game
in 1982. After our famous "Gator Hater" shirts made their debut (which caused such an uproar that we had to discontinue the design!), we confirmed our place as a cornerstone of the Auburn game day experience. 

Now, almost 40 years and countless designs later, we continue to be committed to our customers, designs and spreading the Auburn spirit. 

Tiger Rags Moment in History…
The Gameshirt that Predicted the WIN!

Auburn finished the 2005 Season with a WIN over arch rival Alabama. This marked the 4th year in a row to defeat the Alabama Crimson Tide. To commemorate the WIN, Tiger Rags created the Fear The Thumb gameshirt. Coach Tommy Tuberville donned the Fear The Thumb gameshirt as he stepped off the bus arriving at the then Citrus Bowl. The Auburn Family spent the next year wearing and antagonizing Alabama fans around the country. To seal the deal, the Auburn Tigers WON the 2006 Iron Bowl with a Royal Flush.

From Comfort Colors to Gildan, we print on a variety of shirts and apparel, and each design is created, printed and shipped from our warehouse in Auburn, AL. Tiger Rags is still operated by its original owners, and it gives our team great pride to serve our customers year after year.
