Ernie Holmes etched a permanent place in Steelers lore as a member of the Steel Curtain defense of the 1970's. Holmes appeared alongside linemen "Mean" Joe Greene, L. C. Greenwood, and Dwight White on the Steelers famed front four, and won back-to-back Super Bowls during the period in 1974 and '75. Though Greene usually got top billing, Holmes' ferocity on the field led many to consider him the most feared man on the defense. This white, away jersey was game worn by Holmes during the 1975 season, at the end of which the Steelers won their second consecutive Super Bowl. They would go on to win four in a span of six years, though Holmes only participated in the first two, as he was traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 1978. The jersey has a "75" year tag, a Steelers tag, and a Sand-Knit size 52 tag on the tail. It shows heavy use, with loose threads, abrasions, and 17 team repairs. This jersey offers an incredible chance to own a uniform that once belonged to one of the legendary members of the Steel Curtain. All jerseys come directly from the Steelers archive and come with an LOA from the Steelers. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of Steelers Archives items will be donated to the Chuck Noll Foundation for Brain Injury Research.
