Others try to create an image, ours was created for us and we true to it.

No offense meant, but I was told by a buddy of mine, who is a die hard Steelers fan, that the logo came from Cleveland. Can anyone shed some light on this?

It was a cleveland steel company that originally came to da Steelers and with da idea to put the US Steel logo on da side of da helmets. The owners agreed and on a trial basis put da logo only on da right side of the then gold colored helmets. When da helmets were changed to black it looked even better and it's been kept da same ever since. If anyone ever tries to play da Steelers for takin da design idea from a cleveland company it can only be argued that cleveland didn't have anything to offer for them so they came to da best place: Pittsburgh. haha

In 1962, Republic Steel of Cleveland approached the Steelers and suggested
that they use the Steelmark logo on their helmets since they represented the
Steel community.

The Steelers were hesitant to use what amounted to an advertisement on their
uniforms but decided to give it a try. At the time they were wearing gold
helmets and weren't sure what the decals would look like.

So they instructed the equipment manager to put them on just the right side,
so they could see the helmets with and without the logo to see how it
looked.

The Steelers finished that season 9-5 - the best in team history. That was
considered a good omen, and they decided to keep using the logo.

In 1963, the Steelers petitioned the Iron and Steel Institute for the right
to modify the logo to read "Steelers" instead of "Steel".

They also changed the color of the helmets from gold to black to better show
the logo. They are already getting questions about why the logo is on just
one side and decide that the uniqueness of it warrants keeping it that way.

The Steelers go 7-3-3 and win the right to play the Giants for the division
title. They lose, but it is considered another excellent omen and the helmet
has remained virtually unchanged since (only a center stripe and the player
number have been added. The facemasks were gray but changed to black in the
late 70s).

So it was a little uncertainty and a little superstition that made it that
way. The Steelers are the only team in the NFL, CFL, WFL or CFA that wear a
logo on only one side.

Steelers should have used these when they had that throwback year back in the mid-90's, the ones we used were awful, probably the worst throwbacks in the league that year.

and they have one similar to this one I show below but with yellow helmets see link attached

I actually thought the throwbacks they wore for the 75th Season were freakin awesome.

And I wish you could purchase one somewhere. I have actually been trying to get my hands on one for years now and the only one I've ever seen was in one of the lockers of the Great Hall in Heinz Field :-(
