Throwback Thursday Focus: The Steelers Throwback Uniform

The Steelers Throwback Uniform commemorates the Steelers inaugural year where Art Rooney purchased an NFL franchise in 1933 for $2,500.  On the original jerseys, the stripes in the uniform where raised felt.  The felt allowed the ball carrier to hold the ball more securely.  The crest on the original jersey was the official crest for the city of Pittsburgh.
