Joe Greene will have his number retired when the Steelers host the Baltimore Ravens at Heinz Field on Nov. 2.
You might not have been lucky enough for “Mean” Joe Greene, Hall of Fame Defensive Tackle and anchor of the legendary Steel Curtain defense, to toss you his jersey after a big game in exchange for a cold bottle of Coca-Cola– but don’t worry. Now you can get your own authentic version of Mean Joe’s game day duds thanks to Mitchell & Ness.
When Super Bowl X was played on January 18, 1976, the Steelers and the Cowboys wore special commemorative Bicentennial patches on their jerseys. The game was one of the first in a series of special events around the United States in 1976 to observe the 200th Anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence.
In 1975, Joe Greene was selected to his seventh consecutive Pro Bowl, and was one of the leaders of the famed Steel Curtain defense. That vaunted and celebrated Steelers D led the black & gold to their second consecutive Super Bowl title, defeating the Cowboys 21 – 17.
This premier jersey features Heavy-Duty Polyester Knit Fabric and Tackle Twill numbers and nameplate, making it identical to the jersey that Mean Joe wore on the field. Get yours today at the Official Steelers Online Store.
