Long before Johnny U put the Colts on the map in Maryland, the state of Indiana spawned two NFL teams. 

Not a coincidence the Hammond Pros were proximate to Chicago, one of the birthplaces of pro football. And it was Chicago where Hammond played, years before Halas unpacked the Staleys.

Hammond would begin calling itself the "Pros" in 1920, but was known as the All-Stars or Bobcats in '19, where George Halas himself suited up before being summoned to Decatur. A couple of other notables passed through: performance artist baritone Paul Robeson ("Old Man River..") and the most productive player during the formative years of the NFL, Paddy Driscoll. 

Thirst for more of Chicagoland's gridiron past? See the dropkick shirts and ballcaps for each of the heritage teams: Chicago Cardinals, Chicago Tigers and Racine Cardinals.
