Trivia

  • Republic Steel suggested to the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1962 that the team use the steelmark logo as a helmet decal. (Republic co-owned the rights to the logo at the time.) The logo quickly became popular with Steeler fans, and due largely in part to that team's dominance in the 1970's, is now one of the most familiar logos in all of sports. Ironically, Republic Steel was still based in Cleveland during this time, which is the home to the Steelers arch-rivals, the Cleveland Browns.
