Clemson's $2 bill tradition dates back to 1977. File photo
South Carolina Federal Credit Union offered $2 bills stamped with the Clemson tiger paw for the 2018 Sugar Bowl.
The bills are a reminder of the decision by Georgia Tech in 1977 to stop playing football games against Clemson. Students and alumni then stamped $2 bills with the famed paw print to demonstrate the economic impact of Clemson fans at athletic events. Forty years later, this tradition continues at away games.
The bills will be available at all state financial centers to members and non-members while supplies last inside financial center locations, not through the drive throughs.
“This effort and our larger More Time Cheering Bowl Game Giveaway for University of South Carolina and Clemson University speak to our passion of giving back to our members and allowing them to spend more time doing what they love,” Scott Woods, president and CEO of South Carolina Federal, said.
