The 1980s seemed to be monumental for the Chicago Bears franchise. The Bears were led by Head Coach Mike Ditka throughout the '80s and were a force to be reckoned with. The Bears' 1985 season was quite possibly one of the most impressive seasons ever in NFL history. With a regular-season record of 15-1, the Bears cruised through the playoffs and definitively won the Super Bowl against the Patriots with a final score of 46-10. The Bears' 1985 team is considered to be in the top 5 greatest NFL teams of all time due to their pure dominance.
This Official Bears Pullover is the 1980s-90s authentic and was acquired by Vintage Sports in 2018. This new old stock item was made in the USA and shipped to Europe approximately 35 years ago to be sold at the military Post Exchange in Mannheim, Germany. The Post Exchange is normally located on US military bases throughout the world and meant to provide US products to American troops. After the fall of the Berlin wall in 1989, the US military emphasis began to shift away from Germany to the Balkans. The garrison at Mannheim, once one of the largest in Europe is now mostly a ghost town.
