There were no major changes to the Pittsburgh Steelers' jerseys when Nike revealed the new uniforms earlier this month. The Steelers, however, plan to have a new/old look for the upcoming season.
The team is holding a news conference Tuesday at 4:30 p.m. ET to unveil their throwback jersey to commemorate its 80th anniversary in Pittsburgh.
In 2007, to celebrate their 75th season, the Steelers wore a variation of their early 1960s uniforms that featured gold helmets with black stripe, black jerseys with gold numbers and stripes, and white pants with black-and-gold side stripes. Pittsburgh has worn these throwback jerseys twice a year, including 2011 home games against the Ravens and Browns.
The fifth-oldest franchise in the NFL, the Steelers were founded in July 1933 as the Pittsburgh Pirates. Their original uniforms featured a yellow jersey with pronounced black stripes and the crest of the city's coat of arms on the front.
