Catch a ball off a guy's head in a big game, and 36 years later you too could launch your own line of furniture. You hear that, David Tyree?!
Yes, it's every football player's dream to someday sell out for the sake of high-end leather chairs. Franco Harris, the former Pittsburgh Steeler who made the so-called "Immaculate Reception" in a playoff game in the early '70s, is trotting out an "Immaculate Collection" furniture line, just as his old team is about to compete for its sixth world championship.
The first piece is a "generously proportioned" chair conceived by Helen Hoey, who partnered with national lifestyle designer Barclay Butera. There will only be 500 chairs made, and they are numbered and autographed by both Harris and Hoey. Thus, Harris will achieve every football player's other dream—of having his autograph next to that of someone who's also famous for luxury linens.
