Steelers’ linebacker Arthur Moats, and his wife, Shonda, helped to design the shirt.
Proceeds from the sales will go to charity. It will be split up between the National Alopecia Areata Foundation, which Shazier already works with, and the Christopher Reeve Foundation, which assist people with traumatic spinal injuries.
The company says the symbol on the shirt is also symbolic. The hypocycloid represents the city, Shazier’s jersey No. 50 represents the team and the lion logo represents Shazier himself.
The shirts are now available through Dec. 24.
