Fans lined up around the building to check out the merchandise and get their new purchases signed by the former wide receiver.

“To get an opportunity to be out and see the fans and, you know, smile and sign autographs for them and hear them talk about the Super Bowl and how much they remember the catch, it’s just a joy, you know, to your life,” Holmes said. “And every day, you don’t get to hear it. But to be around the Steeler fans, you know, it’s the greatest thing ever.”

The store features clothes, backpacks, and even onesies for the youngest fans.
