Old Navy made headlines as its T-shirt mistake proclaimed that the Houston Texans was 1961 AFC Champions.
The mistake was circulated online, and the company will be puling the items from its online and local sores, according to ESPN.
The actual winner of the year's American Football League, was the Houston Oilers. AFL is the precursor to the AFC, which was created in 1970.
The Texans didn’t even debut in the NFL until 2002.
This is not the first mistake with the NFL t-shirt line in Old Navy.

A T-shirt proclaimed the Cleveland Browns as 1964 AFC champions, while the Browns actually took the NFL title, instead of AFC.
Another set of Old Navy T-shirts for the New York Jets and Kansas City Chiefs declared them as NFL champions for the 1968 and 1969 seasons, while both won Super Bowls that year as members of the AFL, not NFL.
“The NFL clothing sold in our Old Navy stores is created by a third party sports licensing company,” Edie Kissko, a spokesperson for Gap Inc., told ESPN a statement. “It is our intention to always provide the best merchandise to our customers and NFL fans. We apologize for this error and are removing the T-shirts.”
