You (almost) can't spell Cardinals without c-a-r-d-i-a-c...and that's been rather appropriate for Saint Louis' most recent championship-caliber team, which has brought joy, celebration and heart attacks to the nation's HEART-land.
In 2011, the Cards won a wildcard playoff spot on the season's final day, then snuck by league favorite Philadelphia in a 1-0 decisive game and escaped defeat in the World Series when they were down to their final strike, before taking the title in game seven. It was one of the most amazing rus in baseball history...and 2012 is shaping up to be an encore.
For the first time MLB offered a second wild card position, and the Cards needed it. They won the single-elimination wild card game (with help from a crazy call), then overcame a 6-0 deficit on the road to defeat this major's winningest squad in game 5. Now it's on the San Francisco...and perhaps a 12th world title.
This fun new parody tee puts a spin on the traditional Saint Louis logo to represent the excitement and pulmonary distress caused by the repeated dramatics of this never-say-die team. A flat-lining EKG reading comes to life for this squad that shows a lot of heart and is re-named the Cardiacs on red, navy or sport grey men-or-women's tees in sizes up to 5XL. ( Alternate brands/cuts/colors/sizes can be custom-printed for little additional cost
). Like all National Fanthem designs, it is not an official product of any player, league, franchise or Puerto Rican restaurant -- it's just a comical piece of unique art from our imagination; drawn by hand and rendered digitally as a lossless high-resolution vector graphic for perfect printing.
