Check out this unlicensed Steelers blanket from Lizzie. She says:
“This was a Christmas gift my brother got from our aunt, and when I saw it, I immediately thought of you.”
Hmmm…I wonder why. Could it possibly be that I know more than enough about generic body covers that were gifts from aunts?
“It’s got the classic hypocycloid-but-not-logo, no “Steelers” anywhere… As my brother said, maybe they’re just commemorating the CITY being world champs in something. Six-time Most Livable City?
It’s also a nice touch that the roman numerals are out of order.”
Look back at that link to the bed sheets. It’s uncanny how both vendors went with similar packaging…standard, clear-plastic case with overly-simple cardboard square in the middle of the folded-up cover. It’s gotta be the go-to setup for getting your unlicensed gear out there. I mean, it obviously catches the eye of your everyday Pittsburgh aunt, so it’s making an impression one way or another.
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.
