4. For more information on the Cardinals, you should bookmark these four great websites: 
For a huge amount of great historic player and team information: and 

For a great summary of the Cardinals' year by year standings: 

For great information about the team's stadiums (don't be fooled by the fact that the website is called "", it also has great information on football stadiums): 

5. Celebrate the Cardinals' uniform history by owning a piece of history: 
If you love the Arizona Cardinals and the history of the Cardinals franchise, you might really love to own an original piece of artwork celebrating the team's historic uniforms as seen in the poster at the top of this blog - you can actually own one of those original pieces of art! There are only 16 pieces of original art available for sale, and when these 16 are sold, that's it, they're all sold out. These original watercolor paintings would make a great gift (birthday gift, anniversary gift, retirement gift, Christmas gift, etc.) for someone you love or even a great gift for yourself (one of these framed pieces would look fantastic in your home or office). 

Each piece can be bought one of three ways: 
1. As unframed art that you could have framed or mounted yourself (the one on the left) 
2. Framed in our "Classic" framed version (the middle version) 
3. Framed in our "Deluxe" framed version (the version on the right)  

If you would like more information about this great artwork including the three ways you could purchase each piece, please visit our Arizona Cardinals YouTube video at or go directly to the artwork website where you can see and purchase the artwork. 

 And if someone you know loves the history of sports uniforms (but maybe another team) and loves great art, please let them know that we have over 1500 pieces of great original artwork for sale at (all NFL teams, all MLB teams, all NHL teams, all CFL teams, select NCAA football teams) or check out each team's video at the Heritage Sports Art YouTube Channel 

And please search my blog archive for other blogs on the history of the Cardinals.
