This is a logo “patch” celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Cardinals’ NFL football team’s stay in St. Louis. They relocated there from Chicago in 1960, and unfortunately only lasted 3 seasons after this anniversary celebration before moving again in 1987, this time to Phoenix, Arizona. The NFL agreed to allow the franchise to move to St. Louis in 1960 to fend off possible competition from the fledgling AFL, which began play that year and had considered putting a team there. They only qualified for the postseason 3 times during their time in St. Louis and never won a playoff game while located there. Still, the winning percentage of .481 they had in the Gateway city is far better than the records they have put up in the other 2 locations they have been in.
