ABOUT THIS COLLECTIBLE
RB Franco Harris, a native of Fort Dix, New Jersey, is arguably the greatest running back in Pittsburgh Steelers history. Franco attended Penn State University, where he served primarily as a blocker for the All-American running back Lydell Mitchell (though he amassed 1,359 yards rushing ). In his first season with the Steelers (1972), Harris was named the league's Rookie of the Year by both The Sporting News and United Press International. And in his 13 professional seasons, Harris gained 12,120 yards and scored 91 rushing touchdowns. Hardly the numbers of a blocking back... Chosen to 9 consecutive Pro Bowls (from 1972 through 1980), Harris was part of four Super Bowl Championship team and was the Most Valuable Player of Super Bowl IX. AND he made the "Immaculate Reception," one of professional football's most famous plays. In a 1972 playoff game, the Oakland Raiders were leading the Steelers 7-6 with 22 seconds to play when a Terry Bradshaw pass was deflected away from intended receiver John "Frenchy" Fuqua right as defender Jack Tatum arrived to tackle Fuqua. Harris snatched the ball just before it hit the ground and ran it into the endzone to win the game. The photograph of this timeless play is one of the most famous in football history and is part of our SG Value Series, our best framed value. Quality Framed featuring an 11x14 photo, this beauty is the perfect way to add this classic Steelers moment to your wall at a great price. A terrific gift for any Pittsburgh fan!
