    Super Bowl XIII Championship season!

    1978 Jack Lambert Game Worn Pittsburgh Steelers Jersey. He was terrifying enough even without that Jack o' Lantern grin, six feet and four inches of bone-crushing power wrapped in the black and gold of the sport's most dominant franchise. During Lambert's eleven seasons in Pittsburgh, he claimed Vince Lombardi's namesake trophy four times, his third coming the season he suited up in the offered road white heavy durene gamer.

    The Steelers would stumble just twice in their march to the postseason, conquering the Denver Broncos and Houston Oilers in the divisional and conference rounds of the playoffs to set up the first rematch in Super Bowl history, a meeting with the Dallas Cowboys to mirror the event three years earlier. And, like Super Bowl X, the thirteenth edition would find the Steelers leading by less than a touchdown when the clock struck zero.

    The jersey exists in 100% original and unaltered condition but for a single exception--the "Sand-Knit" exclusivity tag joining the original "78" year swatch at lower left front tail. We believe this was originally the place where a size tag was affixed with glue only, which resulted in its loss. The exclusivity tag has glue remnants on the back as well, but our experts believe that only one "Sand-Knit" tag was originally affixed, and that it was a size designator.

    The rest is good as gold, from the black tackle twill number "58" adorning chest, back and sleeves to the factory-done "Lambert" name plate across shoulders. A faded autograph appears on rear numerals. Wear is light but definite, but the heavy durene, and the fact the jersey measures to a size 52--slightly larger than Lambert's standard format--suggests it was only worn in cold weather road games (with thermals underneath), thus would have seen no more than two contests--November 11 in Kansas City and December 16 in Denver. It's a phenomenal representation from the personification of Steeler toughness. LOA from Heritage Auctions. Full LOA from PSA/DNA (autograph).
