I purchased this Terrible Towel about 30 years ago and have never seen another one like it. Just wondered if anyone knew anything about it.

    Towel has no tag ,I purchased it directly out of the Pittsburgh Steelers Catalog .

    I did some checking and the people who work at the Pittsburgh Steelers told me that the first Mailed Merchandise catalog came out in 1994 ,so the Towel is around 18 years old . So my 30 year estiment was way off sorry .Still would like to know how rare it is having never seen 1 like it before .

    I do have two questions. Who did you contact and how? I have some towels that I would like to do some research on.

    FYI from wikipedia:The Terrible Towel is a rally towel associated with the Pittsburgh Steelers, an American football team in the National Football League (NFL). Created in 1975 by then Steelers radio broadcaster Myron Cope, The Terrible Towel has spread in popularity; fans take their Towel to famous sites while on vacation. There are a lot of pics on the web but I can't find one just like yours.

    I called 1-800 -team -tuff ,they told me that the catalogs first came out in 1994 but thats all they could tell me .What I would like is the catalog from then I still get one every year but they pretty much have gone internet.
