The Cardinals' origin is Chicago

....but the root name is Racine Cardinals.

Emanating from the Morgan Athletic Association in 1899, the team came by way of its evolving name(s) organically. Morgan was a street name, as was Racine -- in Chicago.

The nickname was less about a songbird and more about hue. The acquisition of used uniforms bearing cardinal red is the folklore. Or perhaps a melding with another athletic club, named Cardinals?

Regardless, this is the oldest professional football team, with family ownership dating back ninety years.  

Whether your passion is Chicago or football history, this is the shirt.
