ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - Even though the Cardinals aren`t the baseball kings this year, a major St. Louis t-shirt printing shop on The Hill is still swamped with business printing Cubs World Series champion shirts! Workers at Hanneke's Logowear started producing Cubs t-shirts basically right after the final out of the extra inning, rain-delayed game last night.
The owner of the Hanneke's, Larry Hanneke, says he had about 30 people working all night long trying to get the t-shirts printed as quickly as possible. More workers are coming in this morning to continue the process. Hanneke says he will print about 30,000 shirts with another 5,000 on stand-by. All of the shirts are going to Chicago.
Hanneke hopes to have the 30,000 shirts on the way to Chicago by between 10am this morning and noon.
Hanneke is printing the official MLB Majestic shirts.
He tells us there is a very 'hot market' for the shirts right now.
Hanneke says he'd of course rather be printing red Cardinals winning t-shirts but he's willing to the Cubs credit.
On the up side, Hanneke says he has a theory--he says if he ever had to print Cubs World Series champion t shirts that would be the year the Blues win the Stanley Cup!
We will see what happens there!
