The Pittsburgh Steelers do not normally retire numbers, however, they have chosen to not distribute several numbers. The only official retired number is Ernie Stautner's 70. The numbers 12, 32, 52, 58, 59 and 75 will probably not be seen in the near future. Also, I wouldn't expect to see 36 again anytime soon.
These players have worn number 58 for the Pittsburgh Steelers: * Jack Lambert (74-84) * Chuck Allen (70-71) * Ed Pine (65) * Gail Clark (63) * Roger Pillath (60)

Never knew they were, since the 70's they have always been near the top.
