Best Pittsburgh Steelers Gear to Show Off Your Fandom

Show off your pride for Pittsburgh’s favorite team

Championships are expected in Steeler Nation. Since its founding in 1933, the Pittsburgh Steelers have made the playoffs 31 times and won six Super Bowl titles. When tough economic times hit the steel industry in the late ‘70s and scattered the team’s fan base, other cities around the nation - including the NFL markets in Florida - became hotbeds for fans of the black and gold.

While the fans around the nation await the next championship run, here are six pieces of Steelers swag for true Pittsburgh fans to sport.

Terrible Towel

Every true Pittsburgh Steelers fan should already own a Terrible Towel. If not, here's the original model. Steelers radio announcer Myron Cope gets credit for generations of fans waving the yellow flags when he first promoted the idea during the 1975 playoffs. The Steelers went on to beat the Dallas Cowboys in Super Bowl X.Amazon
