Steelers Throwbacks Named among NFL’s Best

The Pittsburgh Steelers‘ throwback uniforms receive high praise in CBS Sports’ ranking of the best NFL throwback uniforms Cheap NFL Jersey. The Steelers’ current throwbacks, reminiscent of the uniforms worn from 1969-1996, claim the fourth spot in the list.

CBS Sports’ Jeff Kerr commends the Steelers for choosing throwbacks that pay tribute to their storied history, specifically commemorating the 50th anniversary of the iconic “Immaculate Reception.” The uniforms feature vintage block letters and numbers, and the removal of the Steelers logo from the chest.

Compared to their regular uniforms, the Steelers’ throwbacks showcase block numbers and exclude the team’s logo on the left chest. The exact games in which the Steelers will wear their throwback uniforms this season have not been announced, but it is likely to be during one of the games that honors the team’s history or as part of Alumni Weekend.

The top spot in the rankings goes to the Miami Dolphins for their 1972-inspired throwbacks, followed by the San Francisco 49ers’ 1994 drop shadow uniforms and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ return of their creamsicle uniforms and “Bucco Bruce” helmet logo.

Thanks to a recent NFL rule change allowing teams to have two helmet shells, the Buccaneers were able to bring back their iconic creamsicle uniforms, which were originally worn in 1976. Previously, teams were restricted to using only one helmet for player safety reasons. The Steelers, on the other hand, have worn black helmets since 1962, but have also revisited their gold helmets from the 1940s and 50s in other throwback games.
