Add these two to your want list:

Three Rivers Stadium commemrative
2010 season opener

Also:
Winter Classic at Hienz Field ???? It is a Terrible Towel.

The Myron Cope 1929 - 2008 Terrible Towel has two versions. The one they sell and the one sold on opening day in 2008. It has the steelers logo on one side and heinz field on the other.

I will look to see what others I have. I always wanted to know how many veriations of the towel have been produced and started collecting also. I will keep a look out for you for any of the others.

if you guys enjoy collecting theses towel then you need to visit this this link http://urdb.org/wr/terrible-towel-collection/4150 he is claiming towels that are exactly the same writing just made at a different time to be different varaitions. get on there and post your comments to this so we all have a chance to break the world record. look at the bottom row and the ones on the floor. his record is 31 but it should only be 18-20. post your comments please!!!!!!

NEPA, one of my coworkers asked if I had one of these and I just laughed in his face and said I wouldn't own anything or buy anything from Goodhell's tenure and told him this was Goodhell's lame attempt to capitalize on Myron Cope's great idea.

I recently acquired a 1978 terrible towel from a collector who had season tickets for over 2 decades. I'm looking to sell this item. Anyone interested please let me know.

BPS3 and steelers7810. Let me know if your vintage towels are like mine... I have one that was given to me by a former Pittsburgh resident in the late 80's when she found out I was a big Steelers fan that didn't have a terrible towel. I believe it is one of the first year towels sold at Gimbles. It has no other writing on it other than "the terrible towel". The guy with the "record" collection does not appear to have one.

I have a "Build a Bear" TT.... It is about 3" by 4" and it has an elastic loop on one corner so that it can be placed on my bear's wrist.... I bought it through the BaB website, but I haven't seen it on there for a few years - - I got it about 3 years ago.....

My Colorado kid sent me a Camo TT a few weeks ago - - - I love it.... I am thinking about picking up the St. Pat's one that just came out, but I really have problems with things "green and yellow"..... There is already a glut of those colors in my neighborhood..... Sigh.....
