I was looking for a Steelers jersey for my dughters pup, Bennie. And I came across this website, with dog Steelers jerseys and leashes etc. My only problem with it is, there are some Steelers fact listed on the site, one of them is how the Steelers dont retire numbers. This part is true, but then it list 7 or 8 players numbers that "mysteriously" dont get handed out, although they dont retire the numbers. Well they list #31 Donnie Shell ? Doesnt Mike Logan wear #31? And they list #47 we have a Ronald Stanely on the roster with that number?

Anyway I know we havent had a #12 since Bradshaw. And I dont recall a #32 0r #58 or #75. Are these correct, and am I missing any? Maybe Ernie Staunter #70 ??

Anyway besides their Steelers facts being off, it still looks like a cool place to get a Steelers dog jersey

They would unofficially retire 88 and 82 but there are just not enough 80's numbers vs the number of current players that need a number to be able to not hand them out.

It's a safe bet though you'll never see a 12, 32, 58, 75, 36, or 52 handed out to anyone else.
