1954 missing game photos - ***CLOSED***

Post  Bill Schaefer on Sun Aug 14, 2011 2:29 pm

Only one to go...
10/31 BALT @ WASH – WASH in burgundy

9/26 LA @ BALT – LA in yellow
10/17 SF @ CHB – Bears in navy
11/21 CHB @ BALT – Bears in navy
11/21 WASH @ CHC – Cards in maroon; WASH in white? - Found by Tim @ LOC
12/4 BALT @ LA – LA in yellow - Found by Tim @ LOC
12/12 NYG @ PHIL - Found by Tim @ LOC

Baltimore had white and blue striped jerseys as well as third stripeless red jersey. Also had blue helmets AND white helmets. Most of their games were on Saturdays.
A small, grainy, newspaper shot possibly shows Washington in a white jersey with over-the-shoulder UCLA style stripes for the Cardinals game in question which has not been documented yet. We seek to confirm it.

10/17: The 49ers definitely wore their maroon jerseys (per Chicago Tribune), but I couldn't determine if they wore the dark belt--all of the Niners in the one picture were either on the ground or being blocked.

11/21: Somewhat frustrated by the fact that the only photo of either Chicago game in the Trib was of Ollie Matson, post-game, with head coach Joe Stydahar. Ollie was wearing the black belt.

Kinda dark but Bears in Navy over white as expected on the right and Colts in mono-white presumably with navy helmets otherwise the white helmet would have shown to SOME degree.
