Picking up where Andy Russell left off, Robin Cole replaced Russell at right outside linebacker and quickly added two Super Bowls to his resume. Cole was taken by the Steelers in the first round of the 1977 draft, the first ever Round 1 pick out of the University of New Mexico, and played 11 seasons in Pittsburgh. His best year in the Steel City came in 1984, when he was a Pro Bowler. This black, home jersey was game worn by Cole in 1980, the season after the Steelers won their fourth Super Bowl in a six-year span. The jersey shows tremendous use, with loose threads, scuffs, abrasions, and a remarkable 32 team repairs. There is an "80" year tag and size 50 tag on the tail. It has been photo-matched to Cole's 1981 Topps card. 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.
