1994 Packer Throwbacks

Post  BD Sullivan on Tue Jul 26, 2011 1:45 pm

In the article below, it was noted that the Packers made a TV-based decision to slightly alter the 1937 jerseys that would be worn for '94's "Throwback weekend." Brett Favre had tested a throwback road jersey, and it was determined that the yellow numbers on a white jersey were too hard to read, so they were changed to blue "to accomodate TV."

Another interesting factoid: "1937 was the year that leather was replaced by a one-piece fiber crown helmet. The helmet featured sponge rubber padding on the inside and was much sturdier and lighter than the leather helmet."

Hmmm.. Interesting -- the guys might need to look into this....in our database we only have the yellow-numbers on-white for 1944 to 1948, but according to this article, they apparently wore that in 1937.

Based on my research, the Packers wore their navy jerseys for all 11 of their games in 1937.

yeah, they probably just had to come up with a white version for modern-day home-away rules. I'll re-watch that Halloween '94 Green Bay at Chicago MNF game and see if Frank, Al and Dan say anything about the uniforms but they probably won't...
