Verne Troyer lived out a lifelong dream as a die-hard Pittsburgh Steelers fan ... meeting all the players after watching them whoop-up on the Kansas City Chiefs at Heinz Field.
Verne's loved the Steelers since the '70s but never got to a game, so superstar wide receiver Antonio Brown made it happen. We're told Verne watched football with AB all day at his house, then scored pregame sideline passes.
He headed to Brown's suite to watch the Sunday night matchup -- a dominating 43-14 Steelers victory -- and hung out with the team afterward. Check out the pics ... he even met Bob Costas (guess who's taller).
Antonio says Verne brought him good luck -- he scored 2 TDs -- so there's a good chance he'll be back later this season. Keep your Terrible Towel handy, Verne!
