Okay, guys I need your help, those of you who have posted newspaper research pics before.. I need as many actual newspaper pictures as we can find of the 1933 and 1934 Pirates. As you know in 1994 the Steelers wore throwbacks with the city seal design from the 1933 season, and this year they will be wearing throwbacks purported to be from the 1934 season. It is the GUD's contention that the current throwbacks were not ever actually worn in the 1934 season, but actually only worn in the 1933 season. I need as many of these newspaper photos as you all can find from these two seasons for a piece I am doing on this.

Please post them in this thread.

Thanks in advance!

This is a POOR reproduction from google archives.
No criticism of Bill whatsoever. It's the best he could find out there.

The microfilm image from this game (I think the Post-Gazette) would show horizontal stripes on the sleeves of the Pirates, which would indicate the "prison" jersey being worn. The city seal jersey had two vertical stripes on the sleeves.
