It's very, very, very rare to find a real example of a Troy Polamalu jersey, this is the first one that we are auctioning for the Steelers. Dating from the 2004 campaign - his second in a 12-year NFL career - this white road jersey is all original and shows really nice use with paint transfers and repairs. Reebok NFL Equipment size 44 tag is on the tail with "04-44" tag in the collar. Polamalu's number 43 is in black on front, back, and sleeves, embroidered Steelers logo is sewn to the left breast, and the Hall of Famer's name is sewn on a plate in yellow lettering with black trim. One of the most popular players of his era, the standout safety was a Pro Bowl selection on eight occasions while winning two Super Bowls while playing his entire career in Pittsburgh. This is just a really rare jersey from a super talented and well-liked player. Sourced directly from the Pittsburgh Steelers. Photo-matched to: August 14 preseason (51197358), November 14th - 2 Interception game! (580012596), December 18th (51887047, 52007739), January 2nd (81221252). Given the range of these dates, one can rightfully assume the jersey was worn throughout the entire season.
Never before has a major sports franchise opened its team archives going back nearly a century. Let alone a franchise as historic as the Pittsburgh Steelers. Founded in 1933 by Art Rooney Sr., the Rooney Family imprint remains to this day. From the glory of the Steel Curtain to an NFL-best six Lombardi trophies, the Pittsburgh Steelers name defines excellence and winning. We present the latest offering of “The Pittsburgh Steelers Archive of Exceptional Jerseys.” For decades, the Pittsburgh Steelers have guarded and saved their own equipment, thereby creating a huge void in the sports marketplace. As a result, the Pittsburgh Steelers have become the crème de la crème. The rarest and most sought after game equipment of any National Football League team. We were not there in 1922 when they first opened King Tut’s Tomb or discovered the Dead Sea Scrolls. But now, perhaps we all know a bit about how that felt. All items will come with a letter of authenticity from the Pittsburgh Steelers and Lelands. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of Steelers Archives Jerseys will be donated to the Chuck Noll Foundation for Brain Injury Research.
