Jay Pross takes pride in all the T-shirts he designs at his shop, Art History 101, at 7045 Frankford Ave.

This time of year, some of the biggest sellers are short-sleeve shirts and hoodies promoting the Eagles, who will be playing in Super Bowl LII on Sunday.

One big seller is a Brian Dawkins “Bleed Green” shirt, which will become even more popular if the retired safety is elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday.

Each year, Pross designs a new Eagles shirt. Last year, there was a Randall Cunningham design.

Pross gave Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor a Dawkins “Bleed Green” shirt at an autograph show.

“After we beat the Cowboys, he was in the locker room wearing the shirt being interviewed. It went viral,” Pross said.

At the autograph show, Agholor said, “I want to get put on a shirt doing the fall-back into the end zone.”

So, Pross designed such a shirt for Agholor, with the words, “Fly Eagles Fly” included. It’s available for $25 in adult and children’s sizes.

On the day before the Eagles beat the Minnesota Vikings to win the NFC title, Agholor’s family visited Art History 101 to pick up shirts and hoodies.

Pross has also designed a Carson Wentz shirt, which wide receiver Alshon Jeffery was seen wearing on Instagram.

Marc Collazzo, executive director of the Mayfair Business Improvement District, likes having Art History 101 on the Frankford Avenue business strip. Collazzo, whose motto is “Make it in Mayfair,” is also a customer.

“They have unique things you can’t get anywhere else,” he said.

The Eagles-designed shirts, along with ones for legends Bernie Parent of the Flyers and Charles Barkley of the 76ers and non-sports designs, are available by stopping in the shop or visiting arthistory101.com
