Donnie Shell Donating Rare Items to Pro Football Hall of Fame



Steelers legend Donnie Shell is donating some unique and rare memorabilia to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, as he prepares to be enshrined as part of the 2020 class.

A number of exclusive items are being donated, including jerseys, personal artifacts, and awards.

The jerseys are Shell’s college jersey from his time a South Carolina State, as well as a throwback Steelers jersey.

Among the many personal artifacts in the collection are Shell’s Bible used during his career, a 1974 Steelers team photo, his Terrible Towel and even a commemorative ball from his second-career interception.

Also included are two of Shell’s awards from his years at South Carolina State, his 1973-74 Sportsmanship Award and his 1973 All-American Award.

Shell spent his entire 14-year career with the Steelers. His 51 career interceptions are the third-most in Steelers history.

Shell will be inducted as part of the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Centennial class, along with fellow Steelers Troy Polamalu and Bill Cowher.

Steelers fans can check out all the donated memorabilia here.
