    Massive game use with over a dozen team repairs!

    1976 Franco Harris Game Worn Pittsburgh Steelers Jersey, MEARS A10.
    Steeltown would enjoy four Super Bowl Championships during this Hall of Fame running back's dozen seasons in black and gold, and while the '76 edition would fall to the eventual Super Bowl Champion Oakland Raiders in the AFC Championship game, the season was a particularly noteworthy one for Harris personally. His fourteen rushing touchdowns would prove to be both a career and NFL-best, while his noble charitable efforts off the field saw Harris hailed as the 1976 NFL Man of the Year.

    It's impossible to reminisce about the 1970's game without the Pittsburgh Steelers playing a starring role in the memories, and the sight of number "32" blasting through the line factors heavily into them. We see it applied here in white tackle twill to chest, back and sleeves, while "Harris" spans the shoulders in yellow. Classic sleeve striping remains, saved from the trimming fate that haunts so many contemporary gamers. The only alterations we find are the highly-desirable constellation of jagged team repairs, bearing witness to the brutality of NFL trench warfare.

    Interior collar holds Steelers Exclusivity label from "Sand Knit," while lower left front tail bears another denoting "Size 46" beside a "76" year swatch. This is, by every order of measure, a spectacular representation, a time machine back to an NFL era when the path to glory unfailingly ran through Pittsburgh. LOA from MEARS, A10. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
