Thanks Mako. I had this same photo for the longest time but it was undated and I never bothered to look at the socks until a week or so ago when I began charting the individual games for 1953. The Rams unis are worthless since they only wore the same combo for about 6-7 years in a row. BUT, the Colts of 1953 (1st year) wore solid socks and added 3 stripes to them in 1954. This photo is definitely from 1953. That's the good news.

However, with the 2 games between these teams being @ BALT on Nov 22 and @ LA December 5, I'm much more inclined to think that this sunny day took place in LA in early December than in Baltimore in late November.

I think seemingly 95 percent of the games in Baltimore from November on were either played under cloudy skies or fog, so I would strongly second the theory that it's the game in LA. Plus, the seating automatically makes me think of the Coliseum.

Eagles wore white in the 12/6 game at Washington (p 16 of 26):

Colts in navy over white with white lids.
Redskins as expected in burgundy over gold.

From Tim (Live at the LOC)

1953:
10/25: WSH at BAL: WSH gold/burgundy/gold/burgundy. BAL: white/blue/white/blue (Baltimore Sun)
10/31: GB at BAL: Sun did not have a pic from this game. Can make educated guess of GB: gold/green/green/green and BAL blue/blue/white/blue.

THIS CLOSES 1953!
