    1969 Andy Russell Game Worn Pittsburgh Steelers Jersey (NFL's 50th Anniversary) - Photo Matched to '71 Topps Card! An early member of Pittsburgh's famed Steel Curtain defense, the team's MVP in 1971, Andy Russell was named to a staggering seven Pro Bowls during his storied career at linebacker. An enshrinee to the Steelers' All-Time Team, there are many football historians who are baffled at the fact that the revered Missouri alum still hasn't been enshrined into the confines of Canton's Pro Football Hall of Fame.

    Presented here is an absolutely superb white Durene jersey that Russell wore during the league's 50th season. Exhibiting heavy wear, with a great scattering of team repairs throughout (some which can be seen near the front No. 3 on his 1971 Topps card - card not included in lot), it showcases sewn-on identifiers on the front, back and sleeves, while the proper "Honus Wagner's" tag and Sand Knit size 46 tagging are in the tail. Signed and personalized "To Joel" on the front, it has "Andy Russell" written in the collar in an unknown hand. The NFL's 50th patch has been removed, but included in the lot is an original patch that could be used if the winning bidder chooses to go the route of restoration. LOA from Heritage Auctions. Full LOA from SGC Authentic (autograph). Full LOA from PSA/DNA (autograph).
