NYG 1986 Spider patches

Post  bigbluelarry on Wed Jul 20, 2011 8:05 pm

The Giants premiered the Spider patches on MNF @ Dallas in Week 1 of the Regular Season. You should have the plain jerseys labled "worn for Pre Season only."

I did a lot of research on this topic, but came up with very little photographic evidence. I went through my Giants 1987 yearbook, and my 1986 game programs looking for preseason photos. The only one I saw was of Sean Landetta punting, but on his follow through his left arm was elevated and obscured his left shoulder!

Here is a link to an AP photo of the Giants - Steelers Pre Season game in August at Giants Stadium:

Of the Giants 4 Pre Season games that year, they wore their blue jerseys 3 times. At Atlanta the Falcons went WAH, at Green Bay (actually Madison, WI) the Giants wore white, then they of course wore blue for their 2 home games against the Jets and Steelers.

Doesn't look like they were wearing one in the Steeler pre-season game.

Yeah pretty reasonable that if they didnt have it for the LAST preseason game, it wasnt going to show up for any of the first 3 either.
Good find!
