League: Independent Team
History: The Tanks, founded in 1919 in Ironton, Ohio, were one of the great small-town independent football squads of the early professional era. The original "Big Red Machine" trounced the New York Giants and Chicago Bears in 1930, the NFL's second and third place teams, respectively.
Please note: Within the wool yarns, there may be some slight color variations. This is an inherent trait of the authentic wool we use. This should not be considered a flaw, but like the original garment, merely part of its charm.

Since I am a docent at the Lawrence County Museum in Ironton, Ohio. it was great that we were able to display the merchandise so younger people find out exactly what they wore from 1919 to 1930 when the team folded due to the depression.
