If that's the case I just may have to splurge this season and buy one. 8-)

That would be horrible! The same exact jersey with just a different number font? Hope the sales bomb, I already have a Mean Joe just like it. Stupid idea if it's true.

The block numbers alone make it worth it.

You'll be in the vast minority if true.

What's good about a jersey everyone already has? The purpose of a throwback is something different.

I can finally get that Bubby Brister I´ve been wanting all these many long years. Just wouldn´t have looked right without the block numbers.

The block number jerseys should've never been changed in the first place. They're from a classic era like the Packer's jerseys are from their winning years.
The current numbers look silly and i've refused to buy a jersey since they've been worn.

Agreed. The block numbers are much better than the new (20 yr old) comic sans font.

how dare you denigrate the block numbers! Only and idiot would agree with curved lines on a number!!!!!

I'm with you Nick, i hardly notice the difference in the font when I look at the jerseys. But there has always been an oddly fanatic crowd with unwavering loyalty to numbers with no curved lines.

I mean look. Stairway to Seven has refused to buy a jersey for decades due to the 0's having curved lines.

I think it would be kind of idiotic to make the block lettered jerseys the new throwbacks, because they're so similar to what they have now. For that reason, I doubt those are this year's throwbacks.

That said, I do think the block lettered jerseys look better than the current ones, and I wish they'd replace them.

/thread? /thread.

I wonder if the fans can make enough attention to bring them back full time. Kinda like Pens fans did to bring back the retro penguin a couple years back.

You mean you have abandoned your dream of a post dynasty Era Cliff Stoudt jersey?

Could easily be the sole person at the stadium (or Steelers bar, or anywhere, honestly) with my Mark Malone, too.

They said they're unveiling the new throwbacks as part of a special announcement tomorrow.

It's gonna be a 40th Anniversary of the 78 Super Bowl team and the Hall Of Honor ceremony.

Exactly. The shape of the numbers does not make it a throwback, it has to look different.

Logically, the Batman Jersey is the best choice. They've done almost everything else.

How about a joint sharing of the Steagles throwbacks with that team out East? Would only be a problem during one preseason game and possibly the Super Bowl.
