May and Halas Sporting Goods
Amazing tag, cribbed from Uniwatch, my new favorite blog. "About that May & Halas tag, Papa Bear actually ran a team-supply sporting goods store in Chicago. They sold uniforms by Wilson and King-O’Shea, a Wilson subsidiary. The Bears used Wilson or K-OS uniforms right up until the NFL decided to go with a single manufacturer. At one time Halas had his office at the store — in this book, Lamar Hunt mentions that he (Hunt) visited Chicago for a meeting with Halas “at his sporting goods store.”
Now I have to figure out where that was. Another research product. I'm definitely stealing some design elements from this one for my own use.
from this auction I did not win: 1950s Chicago Bears team jacket
Check out this beaut.
I would wear this every single day of my life including 120 degree days here in Phoenix and wear it to bed every night! Can anyone spare $1300?
