The Chicago Cardinals formed in 1918, but have a lineage that traces back to 1898. After World War I ended in 1918, the team reformed and has been in existence ever since. In 1920, the Cardinals were one of the original teams to join the American Professional Football Association, which would be re-named the National Football League two years later. The Cardinals remained in Chicago until the conclusion of the 1959 season, when they moved to St. Louis.
