Green Bay Packers Sport 1929 Throwback Blue and Yellow Uniforms

If you tuned into the Packers-49ers game on Sunday expecting to see Aaron Rodgers, Clay Matthews, and the rest of the boys bringing the heat, you probably were surprised to see a team that resembled the Toledo Rockets on the field. That’s because the Packers were wearing their 1929 throwback uniforms that made them look more look twister board games than football players. Instead of their iconic green and yellow unis, the Packers had brown helmets, blue jerseys with yellow numbers, and gold pants. Check em out:

I know they didn’t understand how to trade on margin in 1929, but I didn’t realize they were also color blind. Brown helmets, blue shirts, gold pants, and blue socks? Yuck. These jerseys were so damn outrageous they were almost cool. So what do you think? Thumbs up or down? Should they make the list of worst throwback jerseys ever?

    I think it looks great- some of those bright colors teams are wearing sear my retinas. Although, I do like the nuclear green the Seahawks added.

    PS the helmets were brown because in 1929, helmets were made of leather and brown. And the pants were meant to be more of a khaki than a gold.

    I like it. If I owned that team, the Unis would all be old school. I don’t mean the mishmash of colours like these are. But I’d go the way of a drab old green
    jersey, same colour helmets, tan/gold pants and matching numbers. The best Detroit Lions jerseys every year are those old plain blue

    Ah, that makes a lot of sense. The brown helmets didn’t make sense otherwise but now it does. And they do look khaki too
