Thanks to Adam for this. He says:
“Not sure if you’ve been sent this t-shirt. I think this was a gift from my Mom after the last Super Bowl Championship. A great shirt that lists all of the great years along with the detail of using the same Font of the Super Bowl logo from that year as the Six on the six pack. Who wouldn’t want a six pack full of championship rings?“
Yeah, that is a similar-style font from Super Bowl XLIII against the Cardinals. That’s a cool little inclusion for the WORLD PITTSBURGH CHAMPIONS. World Pittsburgh Champions? That’s gotta be the most awkward unlicensed way of saying Super Bowl Champion Steelers.
There was also another similar picture that made its rounds after the Super Bowl, with Lombardis in place of the rings. And not gonna lie, if I had to choose, the trophies look a little better in a six pack. At least I can picture an ice cold beer in the Lombardi Trophy more than I can in a ring.
If you zoom in on the text under the image, you can see the years of each Super Bowl win:
That’s a common theme that we’ve featured quite a few times in the Great Moments segment. Showing just the years, or even the Roman numerals associated with each championship is something the unlicensed vendors picked up on early and often. You can’t quite license a year or number.
But until any other NFL team matches our six pack of rings and trophies, this shirt will be more ULTIMATE than any generic gear of theirs.
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.
