Calvin Hill pic on Uni Watch

Post  Rob Holecko on Thu Jul 07, 2011 4:33 pm



Bill & Tim,

Did you two see this pic mentioned on Uni Watch today? I don't know if we know anything about when or where... I was guessing by the filename it could have been 1969 but no 50th Anniv. patch. Also possibly at Philadelphia (Is that an Eagle with infamous white helmet on the left?) ... so maybe 9/20/70 at Philadelphia? Was just his sleeve stripes trimmed off, or were all Cowboys sans stripes?

I'm the guy who submitted it to Uni Watch. I also posted it in the "Post Your Oddities" thread awhile back. The pic is either from 1972 or 1973.

Eagles wore white at home in 1971 and 1973. So that rules out 1972. In fact, the Cowboys never wore the blue jersey in the 1972 regular season.

Cowboys played at Philly on 9/26/71 (week 2) and 10/28/73 (week 7).

Gotta be one of those two games.

Well, if you put it in the "Oddities" thread then it was just him and not the whole Cowboys team, so I guess it won't affect our database...

Oops, right you are. My money's on 1973, then.

Looks like it was the 1973 game. According to famersalmanac.com, both games had highs in the low 60's, but the 1971 game had rain/drizzle and fog whereas the '73 contest appears to be, at worst, cloudy.
