Not gonna lie, this one kills me.
This shirt is from right after Super Bowl XL. As Steelers fans, we know this, so the shirt only needs to show the word “Super,” and make a triangle, Superman sorta logo so the “Super” part really sticks. It’s got the date that PITTSBURGH became 5 TIME SUPER XL CHAMPIONS! Aren’t they missing a STEELERS and a BOWL?
Every championship (to that point) is shown in their respective Roman numerals. All 5 of the actual logos are unique to their championship years and basically include the colors red and blue. This shirt has them in red and blue all right, but that’s about it. If you’re that confused, the years are listed below the numerals.
The shirt makers hit on almost every buzzword you could imagine without mentioning the licensed Steelers and Super Bowl.
However, if the XL wasn’t there, no one would be able to really tell that the shirt commemorated the Steelers. The guy that pumped these out needs to put a little more effort into his trade.
If you have any unlicensed Pittsburgh sports gear, or awesome generic sports gear from any team, send them to me and I’ll post them.
