During World War II many men were enlisted in the Armed Services; severely depleting the rosters of professional sports teams. The NFL considered suspending operations until the conclusion of the war; however it was decided that domestic diversions were important for maintaining civilian morale. While a number a teams were able to persist with reduced rosters; others were forced to combine players from two teams in order to field a squad. In 1944 the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Chicago Cardinals merged; creating one the worst teams to ever play in the NFL. The team, often referred to as the "Card-Pitts", went 0-10 and by most accounts was not very competitive. The offered ticket stubs are from a preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles. The game was played at Shibe Park in Philadelphia; with the Eagles downing the Card-Pitts 22 to 0. The purple stub is from the South upper stand and presents well with a couple light creases and some soiling on the reverse. The green stub is from the South lower stand, is crease free with the score written on the reverse in black ink.
