Logo of a short-lived football team from the old World Football League, the Charlotte Stars. The team came into existence as the New York Stars, but in 1974 as they were getting ready for their next road game, coach Babe Parilli announced that the team would be moving, effective immediately, to Charlotte. Desperate to provide a new logo for the team, an equipment manager slapped a Chicago Bears’ “C” over the New York logo. After just a few days the team changed its’ name to the Hornets, and eventually died along with the rest of the league after the 1975 season.
