Steelers preseason 1964

2 interesting things in this photo of Ben McGee (preseason 1964 in Canton?)



Pant stripes: the yellow stripe is thicker than the one you have in the database

old and new: look the slleve of the player in foreground

As Tim is the Steelers guy in these parts, I'll defer to him but...

the jersey - we indicate that the diamond sleeve jersey was "worn in Preseason only" so that's OK. The other jersey was their regular season jersey so we don't need an indicator like "Also worn in Preseason" b/c then we'd need that to put that on just about every current jersey. I think our status with the jerseys is OK.

the pants - I'm not sure on. I think I'd be more concerned if 'diamond-sleeve' guy in the foreground had the same pattern going on but it appears that he has the normal BYB equal striping. I want to say that its being stretched like the current Giants' pants get stretched but I don't think this is the case. I'd be interested to see more pics of this season to see if it was only isolated to Mr. McGee or others had it too.

YES, I meant it as a "post your oddities" kind of thing

It seems to me they're not of equal size. I'm looking for other photos of that period in my hard drive and I'll post them as soon as possible
