In 1943, the second World War was raging overseas and many young men were drafted or enlisted to fight. Professional athletes were no exception, more than 600 players were drafted at a time when teams seldom carried more than 28. Both Philadelphia and Pittsburgh franchises faced significant losses in their respective rosters. So in 1943, the Steelers and the Eagles decided to combine both teams and become The Steagles. The team only lasted one season and played most of their games in Philadelphia in the Eagles’ green and white, the Steagles finished 5-4-1. It was the first winning season in the Eagles’ 11-year history and the second for the Steelers. Timeless and versatile, our tri-blend tee will quickly become your favorite tee.
