This super rare baseball t-shirt is from a brief and failed attempt by investors to move the Pittsburgh Pirates to Indianapolis in 1985.  Entrepreneur and late leader of  Artistic Media Partners, Art Angotti had a central role in attempting to purchase and relocate the Pirates. People could regularly be seen walking around the city of Indianapolis wearing these shirts back in the mids 80s. More than 12,000 people purchased season tickets for the team in the hopes that the deal would go through. even late Chicago Cubs announcer Harry Caray was quoted at a rally saying, "I'll do everything in my power to help get a franchise because I believe this city is where a major league team could really succeed." Sadly the deal never came to fruition and this shirt is about all that survives of the attempt, as well as one picture of some matching jerseys and hats, which also look pretty awesome.  

Tag says large, but fits like a modern adult medium.
