On December 14, 1980, Rocky Bleire scored the game winning touchdown helping the Steelers win. It was bittersweet. This was the last time Pittsburgh would get to see the four time Superbowl Champ score. From that momentous game is this one-of-a-kind hand made banner. Complete with Steelers logos in each lower corner, this 36x100" banner reads, "Rocky Thank You" in big black letters. From Bleier's personal collection, this memento is tastefully signed and has a remarkable overall appearance.

It is always nice when an athlete makes a collection available to the public. As a collecting community, we are grateful for the opportunity to acquire rare and unique items from an athlete’s career. This one is extra special! For the first time, Rocky Bleier has made available his vast collection of memorabilia. Rocky is much more than an athlete. He is an American sports icon and hero. But even more impressive is the fact that he has been an inspiration to millions of people across the globe for his heroic battle back to the top of his profession as a football star. The items in his collection tell the story of Rocky’s fabled life. From his days at Xavier High School and his three time selection to the all-state team to his being Captain of the Notre Dame football squad to his battles and injuries sustained in the Vietnam War to his fight back to become a 4 time Super Bowl Champion to his life as a family man to the present day where he continues to inspire with his life story and overall kindness. This collection tells a miraculous story and we are thankful that we have the honor of handling it. On a final note, if you ever have a chance to meet Rocky Bleier in person, please take the opportunity. Having the chance to meet him, we can tell you that this man is the embodiment of a true American.
