1962 Vikings socks

Post  Bill Schaefer on Wed Jul 20, 2011 8:35 pm

the 1966 Cowboys turned out awesome! Great job team! Next up...

THE 1962 MINNESOTA VIKINGS

In their second year the Vikings wore 2 different sets of socks with their white jersey/purple pants combo.

One set had purple NW stripes, the other set had 3 equal-sized thin purples. Each of these was outlined in yellow (not gold)


We know they wore the 3-stripe variation in the WEEK 1 opener @ GB and the NW-striping for WEEK 13 @ DETROIT.
What we don't know is which pairs were worn for...
WEEK 3 @ SF
WEEK 6 @ LA
WEEK 8 @ PITT
WEEK 9 @ CHI
WEEK 14 @ BALT

What can you dig up for us?!?

(This thread will self-destruct upon completion...probably not, but that would be really cool!) cheers

According to the 11/5/62 Pittsburgh Press (pg 16 of 23), the Vikes had the purple NW stripes on. There's a photo of Ed Sharockman with said socks:

This is interesting...

10/21 Minnesota @ Los Angeles. I know the picture is not great, but the Vikings are clearly wearing white pants with purple socks, a combo not represented in the database.

Yeah I came across this one last night and sent it in to Tim with the same question.
Tim believes this one is mis-dated from 1961 actually.

The 1961 Minnesota @ Los Angeles had an attendance of 38,594, making for plenty of open spaces in the vast LA Coliseum.

Fuzzy, but the Viking laying on his back to the left of Bears #31 and #25 clearly has NW stripe socks.
