Overview

Fans and collectors of the Pittsburgh Steelers remember Stallworth fondly as a key offensive weapon and target for Terry Bradshaw during the teams dynasty of the 1970's. As a result, John Stallworth cards and memorabilia hold a special place in the hearts and collections of fans of Steeler Nation. He was part of back-to-back Super Bowl Championships, twice, during his illustrious 12-year career with the Steelers.

The 1978 Topps Football set contains John Stallworth's only rookie card. He does, however, have a 1978 Steelers team issued sheet card, depicting him along with several other players.

Fittingly enough, Stallworth's first certified autograph card was issued in the 1997 Upper Deck Legends set. The signature is on-card. It is not serial numbered and an exact print run has never been released.

John Stallworth's first memorabilia cards are Stadium Stars insert cards from the 2001 Donruss Classics set. He has a memorabilia-only version as well as an autographed memorabilia parallel. The autographed version is limited to 200 total copies, but is not serial numbered.

Stallworth's autographed memorabilia continues to be very popular. He is also a required signature on any team signed item from the Steelers' dynasty.
