A career Steeler, Chris Hoke spent his entire 11-year tenure in the NFL with Pittsburgh and won two Super Bowls with the team in the 2005 and 2008 seasons. Hoke was signed by the Steelers as an undrafted free agent after the 2001 draft. It took three years before he saw the field for the team, but Hoke made the most of his opportunity and became a regular contributor to the defensive line until his retirement in 2011. This black, home jersey was worn by Hoke during the 2002 season when he still remained buried on the Steelers' impressive depth chart. It shows nice use with one repair to the right front shoulder and other contact marks and scuffs. "HOKE" appears sewn on a name plate on back, while his number "76" is stitched onto the front, back, and both shoulders. A Steelers emblem can be found on the left breast, with a Reebok size 46 tag on the left side of the tail. This jersey has been photo-matched to an undated image. Comes with LOA from Resolution Photomatching. All jerseys come directly from the Steelers archive and come with an LOA from the Steelers.
