MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – The Friends Gift Shop of West Virginia University Hospitals will be adding a new addition to its line of exclusive WVU collector’s items. A stein decorated in WVU images will be available for purchase in late May. The Gift Shop is taking preorders now.

The stein is a ceramic mug with a pewter lid, packaged in a white gift box. It is manufactured in Germany by R.F.S.J., Inc.

“The stein captures images of academia and sports, which should appeal to many WVU alumni and fans,” Pat Antion, manager of Friends Gift Shop of WVUH, said.

Images on the stein include the Mountaineer, Woodburn Hall, the WVU Coliseum and Milan Puskar Stadium.

Each stein will be numbered on the bottom. The bottom will also include the inscription, “Designed exclusively for the Friends of WVU Hospitals Morgantown, West Virginia.”

“It is a great gift for WVU graduates,” Antion said.

Only 250 steins have been ordered for the first release. They steins will be sold for $92.99.
