    1968 Topps Test Teams Pittsburgh Steelers #5 PSA NM-MT 8 - Pop Two with None Higher! Scarce and desirable are two words oft-used when describing cards from the 1968 Topps test issue that featured all 25 of the current NFL teams. The black and white cards saw extremely limited distribution via 10-cent packs that included a stick of gum and a cloth team sticker/decal. A dismal 2-11-1 record in '68 may have been ugly to watch at the time, but without bottoming out the Pittsburgh Steelers likely would not have been able to rise to the heights that they did in the 1970s. Head Coach Bill Austin was let go after the season ended, paving the way for the hiring of Chuck Noll, and the advantageous draft position that comes along with the league's third-worst record allowed the selections of "Mean" Joe Greene and L.C. Greenwood come spring 1969. Offered example of this rare issue is one of thirty-two encapsulated with none surpassing the PSA NM-MT 8 grade and merely one (unqualified) equaling it.
