Art Rooney Bio- Considered an excellent football player, Rooney’s legacy is being inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1964, having the football field at Duquesne University named after him, and the amazing bronze statue of his likeness that sits at the entrance of the Pittsburgh Steelers Heinz Field stadium.  Rooney was the American founding owner of the Steelers, having had played football in college.  In 1933, he purchased the team for a mere $2,500 for his son’s first birthday.

Then after winning $160,000 in a horserace, Rooney hired a professional coach, as well as gave his players actual contracts.  While the team was sold in 1941, Rooney would again gain control but when the Steelers faced financial obstacles during WWII, they merged with other teams to include the Philadelphia Eagles and Chicago Cardinals but at the end of the war, Rooney was named team President.  While the Steelers had some rough years, they did have a turn-around period which ultimately resulted in four Super Bowl wins and four AFC Championship wins.  Of all places to purchase Art Rooney football cards, eBay has the best selection and most competitive prices.
