    From steel in Pittsburgh to bronze in Canton...

    1975 Lynn Swann Game Worn Pittsburgh Steelers Jersey, MEARS A10. Few teams in history have been so perfectly suited to their respective fanbases as the Steelers of the 1970's, who bulldozed their way to four Super Bowl Championships through the same raw, gritty strength that made Pittsburgh a blue collar powerhouse of American industry. But as Harris and Bleier smashed through lines of scrimmage, Lynn Swann served as the team's Baryshnikov, the graceful counterpart to that hard-nosed winning formula. The Bradshaw/Swann tandem remains one of the most celebrated in league history, along with Montana/Rice, Aikman/Irvin and Manning/Harrison.

    For reasons unknown, game worn jerseys from Swann's nine seasons in Steeltown are virtually non-existent, with this offering the only one to appear at auction in the 21st century. Thankfully, it's a perfect specimen by nearly every metric for evaluation, dating to a season that saw Swann lead the league with eleven receiving touchdowns en route to a Super Bowl X Championship.

    The experts at MEARS rave about the garment, characterizing game wear as "heavy" as they designate their top rating. Black double-eights adorn chest, back and shoulders of the white durene shell, while "Swann" stands in two-tone tackle twill across rear nameplate. Lower left front tail reveals dual "Sand-Knit" tagging denoting Steelers exclusivity and "Size 42." A "75" year swatch to the left supplies the elite vintage. LOA from MEARS, A10. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
