We are so excited that this Hall of Fame Inductee will be leaving Columbus to say hi to all his fans right here at the Mascot Hall of Fame.

Aubie is the athletics mascot of Auburn University. Aubie proudly marched into the Birmingham-Jefferson County Civic Center on February 28, 1979 for his first appearance. Not only is Aubie an Hall of Fame inductee, but Aubie was named the Mascot National Champion at the 2016 UCA Cheer and Dance competition. This is a tiger of many talents and we can't wait to see what he does at the MHOF!
