Arthur J. Rooney, fondly known as "The Chief," not only founded the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1933 but also played a crucial role in shaping the city's sports culture. Beyond football, his commitment to community engagement and philanthropy left an enduring impact, making him a beloved figure in Pittsburgh. Rooney's legacy continued after his passing in 1988, and to honor his contributions, the Steelers wore a commemorative patch on their jerseys, symbolizing the enduring spirit of resilience, unity, and sportsmanship that he brought to Pittsburgh.

This shirt is in honor of The Chief and the 1988 commemorative patch that honored him.
