I have many new and old jerseys and would love to add these ones too if there is any merit to the rumor. Let me know if you have heard anything. Look forward to supporting the STEELERS once again!!!
Welcome! Glad to have you.
As far as I know, there are 3 official jerseys
The current uniform designs were introduced in 1968. The design consists of gold pants and either black jerseys or white jerseys, except for the 1970 and 1971 seasons when the Steelers wore white pants with their white jerseys. In 1997, the team switched to rounded numbers on the jersey to match the number font (Futura Condensed) on the helmets, and a Steelers logo was added to the left side of the jersey.
The current Third uniform, consisting of a black jersey with gold lettering, white pants with black and gold stripes, and a gold helmet were first used during the Steelers 75th anniversary season in 2007. They were meant to evoke the memory of the 1963–64 era uniforms. The uniforms were so popular among fans, that the Steeler organization decided to keep them and use them as a Third option during home games only.
