Le’Veon Bell first ran onto the field on September 29, 2013 at Wembley Stadium when the Pittsburg Steelers traveled to Europe to take on the Minnesota Vikings. This proved to be a great day for the young Steeler as Bell rushed for 57 yards on 16 carries and had a season high two rushing touchdowns and even had four receptions totaling 27 yards. Bells first career and most historic touchdown came on an eight yard run during the first quarter.
Not only is this a rookie jersey worn and used by Bell in his first game as a mighty Steeler, this is the jersey he wore when he scored his first ever NFL touchdown on that momentous day in Wembley Stadium in 2013. The Nike On Field jersey tag in the collar reads size “44”, “2013”, “+ 4 Length” and has the NFL/PSA authentication sticker attached (2N00310). The front of the jersey has Bells “26” in black along with the Steelers insignia and the NFL crest right below the collar. The back of the jersey has “BELL” stitched to the nameplate and sits above the signed “26.” Bells signature and inscribed “#26” is prominent on the “2”, in silver Sharpie and looks fantastic. The “6” has the inscription “1st Touchdown!” also in his hand.
In addition, this jersey shows tremendous use with numerous stains and marks from the field on September 29, 2013. There is one small tear on the back just below the right shoulder but is hidden in the use marks and does not interfere with the overall great appearance of this well used jersey.
