Starting in 1899, the two teams met to play one game for territorial bragging rights and the trophy, the Territorial Cup. This meeting would continue on a semi regular basis for the next several decades, until 1946 when it became an annual match up. In 2001, the trophy would start changing hands, being displayed at the school that won that year's game. The Territorial Cup is the oldest rivalry trophy in college football.
In honor of ASU bringing the Territorial Cup back to Tempe this year, we 3D printed our own desk sized version of the cup. After receiving a significant amount of interest about the cup on social media, we decided to offer it for sale for a limited time. The cup measures 4" tall and is about 4.25" wide at the handles. While it is functionally a cup, it is not food safe. Now, just in case: for legal reasons, this is not a direct replica, but a cup of our own design modeled after the Territorial Cup, with some changes made to give it the best chance of being 3D printed.
There are two versions available:
1. A 3D printed cup made in our shop using our FFF (fused filament fabrication) printer. This printer builds the cup by squirting molten plastic through a nozzle one layer at a time. This is a slow process and will take about 8 and a half hours to complete. Parts made using this printing process are functional, but the surface finish is rough and will show some delamination of the layers due to the uneven cooling of such a large part (see pictures). This is the cheapest option and is available in our store. Depending on the number of orders received, I expect to ship the cups within 3 days of an order being placed.
