RetroCards presents it's first Pittsburgh Steelers set!  Coming off their 3rd Super Bowl win in five years, the Steelers were stacked with future Hall Of Famers.  The rule changes to the offense in 1978 opened up the passing game and Terry Bradshaw became a prolific passer.  The running game took a back seat and though Franco Harris and Rocky Bleier carried less of the load, Lynn Swann and John Stallworth picked up the slack.  This was fortunate because the mighty Steeler defense was not the stifling unit it had been in 1974-75, but it still came up with the goods.

This RetroCards set features the first of several custom Lynn Swann cards.  Starting with 1978, Swann never had another card although he played through 1982.  Look for other Steelers sets in the not so distant future!  Check out the full 18-card 1979 Pittsburg Steeler RetroCards set by clicking here.
