Founded in 1933, the Steelers are the 7th oldest franchise in the NFL. After roughly 40 years of frustration without having won any Championships, the Steelers won their first Super Bowl in 1975. Since then, the Steelers have won a total of 6 Super Bowls and have made deep playoff runs. Some of the legendary Hall of Famers for the Steelers include John Stallworth, Chuck Noll, and Art Rooney. With returning players Juju Smith-Schuster, James Conner, Donte Moncrief, and Ben Roethlisberger, the Steelers are looking to have a bounce back season with hops of a playoff run.
This Official Steelers T-Shirt is 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.
In 1957 Garan was incorporated as a merger of seven companies. After they decided to go public in 1961 they began to distribute clothing bearing the designs of professional sports teams in 1975. During their short time as a company, Garan managed to produce some of the highest quality vintage apparel. Become a part of history with a purchase from our collection of Garan t-shirts.
