During the late 1960s, the National Hockey League decided it was time to broaden its appeal and enter a half-dozen new markets where a hockey franchise would be well received by the local population. The city of Pittsburgh met the NHL's qualifications and, in 1967, the city welcomed the Pittsburgh Penguins for their inaugural season on the ice. Though that particular season wasn't necessarily notable, it laid the groundwork for a team that has quickly become one of professional hockey's most successful modern franchises. Considering how risky it was considered when the NHL decided to effectively double the number of teams in active play during the 1960s, it's safe to say that decision paid off handsomely in the Pittsburgh market.
Today, the team is one of the most established rivals of the cross-state Philadelphia Flyers and is proud to be the home of the controversial (among non-Pittsburgh fans) Sidney Crosby. With 7 division championships, 4 conference titles and 3 Stanley Cups, it's no wonder demand for Penguins apparel is just as high in Pittsburgh as it is outside the city's native media market.
