Nice windbreaker jacket worn by Pittsburgh Steelers legend Jack Lambert on the NFL's 1977 UFO Tour of Asia. Light blue snap-front jacket shows nice use, bottom drawstring is present but has pulled through on one side, with Russell size XL tag in collar. Pressed on lettering in white reads, "Pittsburgh Steelers Jack Lambert, NFL-USO 1977." Signed in silver Sharpie on left front with inscriptions, "S.E. ASIA" and "HOF '90 #58." In 1965, Commissioner Pete Rozelle had the idea of sending NFL players on goodwill tours of Vietnam, and the following year the league partnered with USO to start the tradition. In addition to Lambert, other players on the '77 tour included Carl Ellis, Ahmad Rashad, Steve Grogan, and George Buehler.
