Default Block Letters

I've seen a few petitions on the web for reverting the Steelers jerseys back to the older looking block lettering and numbering. I think that it sort of suits our style of play, being that we play more like teams from yester-year.

Not saying I'd be all for the change, but I think it would be something to consider. Thoughts?

I'd rather they spend the money on keeping Heath Miller.

I like the block numbers better but I can live with the current uniforms. Steelers is Steelers.

Numbering, I care little about. I am not a huge fan of the alternate unis though.

I'd prefer the old block numbers but not enough to sign a petition.

I'd like the alt uni's if they wore the black helmets with them.

There is a precedent. This is from 1965. They were in what we call "throwbacks" and in black helmets....



These uniforms had the TV numerals on the sleeves and helmet numerals. Of all the uniforms, this is probably my favorite. But I like them all, even the 1933.



I made a McFarlane of that one.

Me too. But new unis are about selling more jerseys. And that's making money.
