they haven't worn white at home in pittsburgh since 1969, when they played at pitt stadium. they usually wore white for home games from 1966 thru 1969. before that they wore white for a game vs the rams in 1964, and a couple of home games against the redskins in the early 1950's.

in the ancient days, they wore yellow at home in the 1930's (then known as the pirates) and into 1940 and 1941. believe it or not they actually broke out green jerseys in 1941. also wore green jerseys at home in 1943 (as part of the "steagles") and red in 1944 (as "cardpitt).

As usual, timmyb is absolutely right. I have a Steelers book that shows them wearing white at home in the late 60s against the Cowboys, Rams, & Skins. It also looks like they wore white for all their home games in '69, which was Chuck Noll's first year. The next year they moved to the AFC and 3 Rivers Stadium and have worn black at home (thankfully) ever since.

The NFL apparently allowed NFL teams to choose what jersey to wear at home beginning in '64, and that's when teams started experimenting with wearing white at home. I believe from '57-'63 it was a rule that they had to wear the dark jerseys at home...and prior to 1957 not every team had a white jersey anyway.
