Who would have thought Sara Lee (yes that cake brand whose commercial ringer digs our brain with permanent ear worm) bought Champion in the 80s! 

Over a period of time the neck labels changed from the ones of the 40’s and 50’s, where the company name of Champion Knitwear Company with the running man and finish line logo was used.

In the 70’s and 80’s the neck labels evolved and the more familiar classic red and blue fonts on a white background were introduced.
