Beginning Friday and running through January of next year, the Heinz History Center will display five rings that belonged to Pittsburgh Steelers legend Franco Harris.
Four Super Bowl rings and a Pro Football Hall of Fame ring will be in the museum’s “Super Steelers” exhibit as part of an installation that remembers Harris’ life and career.
Harris died on December 20, 2022, days prior to the 50th anniversary of the Immaculate Reception. As part of the celebration, the Steelers retired his No. 32 during a halftime ceremony in a game against the Las Vegas Raiders.
A key part of the Steelers dynasty, Franco Harris rushed for 12,120 yards and won four Super Bowls with Pittsburgh. He eclipsed 1,000 yards on the ground eight times — including five instances that came in a 14-game schedule. Only Emmitt Smith has more than his 1,556 rushing yards and 16 scores in the postseason.
Harris finished his career in eight games with Seattle and called it quits as the NFL’s third all-time leading rusher behind only Walter Payton and Jim Brown.
Fans will now get to see a piece of history when they attend the museum, which is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day of the week.
