UNIFORM HISTORY

Jailbreak!

The Steelers became near instantaneous uniform victims in 2012 when the team brought back threads from the early 1930s to commemorate the franchise’s 80-year anniversary. The gold pants and black-yellow pinstriped jerseys resembled something you’d see on the prison yard instead of the gridiron.

The wacky combination marked the sixth consecutive season Pittsburgh donned throwbacks to honor prior teams. Since 1968, the Steelers have worn their current style with only minor changes to numeral placement on shoulders and sleeve stripes.

The Steelers’ longtime logo, a wordmark encased by a gray circle with yellow, blue and red stars — originated in 1962. The stars were meant to represent three different materials used in the steel-making process. Pittsburgh’s current black and gold combination at home is one of the NFL’s most classic looks, as is the franchise’s recognizable white and gold style on the road.

The Steelers have used the same color scheme every season except one since inception. In 1943, Pittsburgh and the Philadelphia Eagles merged to become the “Steagles” for one season.

Strange.

The Steelers are the NFL’s only team to have their logo on one side of the helmet. Pittsburgh switched from yellow to black shells for good in 1963.

During the 2008 season, the Steelers made history by becoming the NFL’s first team to defeat an opponent three times in three sets of uniforms. Pittsburgh took down Baltimore in its road whites and throwback alternates during the regular season then ousted the Ravens in the AFC Championship Game in home blacks.
