Steely McBeam

I'm hearing that some folks don't like the new or shall I say revised mascot of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Steely McBeam, he was created in August 2007 as part of the 75th anniversary celebrations of the team. His name was selected from a pool of 70,000 suggestions submitted since April 2007 by fans of the team. Diane Roles of Valencia, Pennsylvania, submitted the winning name. She said she picked the name because of Pittsburgh's steel history; the Irish name McBeam because of the Rooney (team owners) name and "beam" for the city of Pittsburgh and her husband's favorite alcoholic beverage, Jim Beam.

This cap has the logo that was used during the 1960 season. Great looking head piece.
