The Alabama – Auburn T-Shirt Mystery, Explained
There has been a rumor circulating that American Eagle Outfitters was selling Alabama apparel that actually contained the Auburn logo. Blogs, message boards and forums have been lighting up with news of this corporate blunder.
Here’s the shirt. But there’s more to the story.
Those reporting the snafu may need to take a look back in history. The logo included on the T-Shirts is actually the official Alabama logo from 1952-1958. Does it look somewhat like Auburn’s logo? Sure. But it is certainly not the mistake many are reporting.
