REST OF 1957?

Post  Bill Schaefer on Mon Aug 01, 2011 7:55 pm

Can we locate these games? Google News has nothing for Chicago, Baltimore, LA, SF, or Detroit.

CHICARDS @ SF - Sept 29
CHIBEARS @ BALT - Oct 5
DET @ GB - Oct 6
SF @ CHIBEARS - Oct 13
BALT @ DET - Oct 20
GB @ BALT - Oct 27
BALT @ CHIBEARS - Nov 17
SF @ BALT - Nov 24
CHICARDS @ CHIBEARS - Dec 8
The main reason I'm looking for photos of these games is that I'm noticing an increasing amount of color-vs-color (CVC) games and a mixture of white-at-home (WAH) every so often as I'm looking backwards through the 50s. I don't want to simply assume home-team-colored-jerseys and road-team-white-jerseys.

After a trip to the local library to check the Chicago Tribune, we can knock five more games off the list:

9/29: ChiCards (White) @ SF
10/13: SF (White) @ ChiBears
10/20: Balt (White) @ Det
11/17: Balt (White) @ ChiBears
12/8: ChiCards (Red) @ ChiBears (White)

For those wondering how neither of the Milwaukee papers could have photos of the Lions @ Packers game on 10/6, there's a simple explanation. On that date, the baseball Braves were hosting the Yankees in Game Four of the World Series--the first WS in Milwaukee's history. It appears the sports editors were content with just a game story for the football game.

THANK YOU, KIND SIR!

WOW! THE BEARS WORE WHITE AT HOME? INTERESTING.
WOULDN'T HAVE FIGURED THAT ONE. GLAD I DIDN'T JUST GUESS!

YOUR ASSISTANCE IS GREATLY APPRECIATED!

I'm going to go out on a limb on the other 3.
Baltimore wore blue at home for all other home games, including Week 1, and the Bears and Pack wore white on the road almost exclusively.
The only exception being Week 1 when the Bears helped open Lambeau by going CVC.
I'm going to say those were likely CHIBEARS(W) @ BALT(B) and GB(W) @ BALT(B).

For the last one, Detroit wore white all season on the road while GB wore navy at home all year.
This is very likely DETROIT(W) @ GB(N).

Thanks, guys.
Some more of the same from 1956 will posted tomorrow probably.
