1940 Early photograph of young football Hall of Famer Art Rooney. Known as the father of the Pittsburgh Steelers, this is a rare photograph from a short period of time where he actually sold the team (only to regain control soon afterwards). Issued by Acme and stamped on the back with a large paper caption as well, this is his earliest photo we have seen.
