    1977 Terry Bradshaw Game Worn Pittsburgh Steelers Jersey, MEARS A10. Much like those glory days of Heavyweight prizefighting populated by Ali, Frazier, Foreman and Norton, the 1970's was an age of giants for the National Football League, birthing some of the most memorable rivalries of gridiron history. Chief among those emerging rivalries is a pair of fiercely contested Super Bowl meetings between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Dallas Cowboys, memorable battles of skill and will that went a great distance in installing each Hall of Fame quarterback in the game's pantheon.

    Here we encounter an image imprinted in the mind of every fan of the sport alive during that rough and tumble age, a white number "12" jersey with those distinctive sleeve stripes that instantly evoke the name Terry Bradshaw. Arguably the finest of its kind ever to emerge from a Steeltown locker room, the white durene beauty ably recounts its travails in the form of five team repairs in the shoulder region, turf or face mask paint at the ribs, an apparent blood stain between the rear numerals, and a buttery softness of tagging and tackle twill identifiers consistent with sweaty use and multiple washings. MEARS is well justified in its perfect A10 assessment of the garment.

    Number "12" is applied in proper black tackle twill format on chest, shoulders and verso, where "Bradshaw" stands in two-tone block letters three inches in height. Lower left front tail holds "Designed & Tailored Exclusively for the Pittsburgh Steelers American Football Conference, Medalist Sand-Knit" label, with "77" year swatch at seven o'clock position.

    Though the Steelers would fall in the first game of the 1977 playoffs, Bradshaw's 2,523 passing yards during the regular season marked the highest tally of his career to date, with seventeen touchdowns one short of his greatest output. With two Super Bowl rings already in the trophy case, and two more to come, Bradshaw was literally at the pinnacle of his career at the time this Canton-quality artifact shared the field of battle with him. LOA from MEARS, A10.
