That mismatch is historically accurate, though.

 

Woulda drove me crazy back then, too.

- I wonder if this is a trial balloon for a potential full-time return to block numbers.


Let's hope so.

You would have loved the 1959 uniforms, then.  The only year they wore white socks with the road jersey stripe pattern.

By the following season, they had eliminated the road socks and players wore the standard home green striped socks.

I don't see any ":mismatch" in the throwback socks, though.  The striping pattern repeats the Braisher stripes on the pants.

Love the socks, but the pants stripe mismatch has me thrown all over again :lol:

The socks may match the pants striping, but not the jersey striping, which simply goes green-yellow... especially since Cleveland shot themselves in the foot, I would love to see Green Bay add via subtraction and drip the thin white stripes from their sleeves.

Didn’t think anyone would beat the Browns in unveiling a throwback that’s practically the same as the currentBraylon+Edwards+New+York+Giants+v+Clevel

 

I wish the Browns had gone with that helmet full time. The solo white stripe looks so good. The thin pants stripes are a great detail and the socks had stripes too.

Welp, a tad bit underwhelming but pretty much perfect, although now even closer to Iowa's look. 9/10

It looks really, really good. Granted, I still think the Batman would’ve made a better alternate, but this still is precisely how the Steelers should look full-time.

Makes sense to wear these for at least the next two seasons so they can celebrate the Super Bowl XIII and XIV teams, do the Batman jerseys for a few seasons then bring these back with the Bicentennial patch from Super Bowl X for 2025 & 2026.

Not gonna lie, that is my unpopular opinion as well. I wasn't around for those earlier teams so it's just what I associate with the Steelers

Eh...why bother? Most people probably won't even notice a difference between the throwback and regular black jersey. Besides, if you wanna see the Steelers with block numbers, just watch Iowa on saturdays. I'm kidding, mostly, but the batman jerseys would have made a much cooler alternate.

I probably would have disagreed with this back in the late 90s. But the Steelers have really made the italicized numbers a distinguishing feature, and the block just looks like Iowa now. (c'mon Iowa, bring back the banana peels...)

No, no.  You see ">" means "more than".  You've got it backwards.  :P
