I usually never try to plug merchandise unless it is Cat Basket stuff (shirts currently unavailable), but this time Pitt is producing something I believe everyone should own. I first came across this piece while visiting Panther employee and friend to the Cat Basket, Mrs. Nora Duncan. I thought that they would be selling it in the team store and Heinz Field starting next year around football season, but luckily the item is avaialbe now.
I've seen several other schools sell items like this but I have never seen one done for Pitt at Heinz Field. I will admit that I do have a picture of Pitt Stadium hanging up in my room, but that is only for nostalgic reasons. This is something that I would get and hang up for everyone to see.
I never thought about it, but that certainly was the perfect time to take the picture. We are in the process of defeating WVU 19-15, the stadium is sold out, and while the Pitt logo doesn't look all that great, at least it is on the 50 yardline.
If you're interested in purchasing the item, you can do so here. I am not sure whether or not I will get a frame for it. Just like with the diploma frames, I'm sure I can find one cheaper else where, but I don't know of too many places off hand that would make decently priced panoramic style picture frames.
Anyway, I thought that this was a nice little Pitt item worth mentioning on here.
