The “Batman” jerseys worn by the Steelers during the 1966 and 1967 are quite possibly the most infamous uniforms in team history. Introduced as part of an attempt to modernize the Steelers team image, these jerseys featured a bright gold yoke over a black base – a design that had never before been seen in the NFL. They were a media sensation as soon as they hit the gridiron, drawing numerous comparisons to the uniform worn by Adam West’s Batman on the popular television series. However, while fans loved the look, the Steelers players weren’t fond of the “caped crusader” outfits and so the jerseys were retired in 1968 in favor of the team’s current uniform template.
Though the “Batman” jerseys were only worn for two seasons, they will forever be remembered as one of the most memorable looks to ever grace professional football.
