_________________

The oldest NFL team, dating back to the 19th Century!

Up through league formation in 1920, the team went by its second gen prefix, the avenue where they played -- Racine.  Parochial identity proved to be a problem, compounded by the charter secretary mistakenly adding Wisconsin to the registration.

Enter the quartet of late arrivals the inaugural autumn, including Chicago Tigers. In short order, Cardinals' ownership saw the light, punting Racine for the big city name.  

The team moved to St. Louis in 1960, moving again to Phoenix in 1988. But its origin and championship season were made in Chicago. 

More history to be found in team ballcaps and dropkick shirts, including Racine Cardinals' gear.
