Historic Pittsburgh Steelers home "Bumblebee" jersey worn by Ben Roethlisberger on November 1, 2015, during the game in which he became the first quarterback in franchise history to pass for over 40,000 yards. Accompanied by an LOA from Resolution Photomatching confirming the jersey's use by Roethlisberger in that game. This is one of the finest Roethlisberger game-used jerseys we have ever handled given both its rare style and record-book significance. 

The black-and-gold striped mesh jersey features the number 7 on the front and reverse. All numerals are applied in black tackle twill upon a rectangular white-on-black tackle twill backing. Roethlisberger, is lettered in black tackle twill upon a gold mesh nameplate on the reverse. Located in the collar is a 2015 year  tag, which is adjacent to a Nike On Field 50 label bearing the lettering Q-BK at the base. Roethlisberger has inscribed the jersey (B. Roethlisberger 7) in black Sharpie (grading 7/10) on the reverse number plate. The jersey is original as issued and displays outstanding use, including soil stains and paint transfers. 

The Steelers wore these rare throwback-style jerseys in a home game against the Cincinnati Bengals at Heinz Field on November 1, 2015. Roethlisberger played the entire game at quarterback for the Steelers, finishing with 231 passing yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in the Steelers' 16-10 loss to the Bengals. While the Steelers lost the game, Roethlisberger etched his name in the record books that day by becoming the first quarterback in Steelers history to pass for over 40,000 yards. He also became only the sixteenth player in NFL history to reach that passing milestone. Additionally, Roethlisberger's first-quarter touchdown pass moved him into sole possession of 15th place on the all-time passing touchdown list, one ahead of Sonny Jurgensen. Full LOA from Resolution Photomatching.
