Hit List #2 - 1970 Kansas City Chiefs (need 1 more)

Post  Bill Schaefer on Sat Dec 10, 2011 6:42 pm

In 1970, the Kansas City Chiefs wore 2 sets of both their red jerseys and their white jerseys...


White jerseys worn...
Week 1 - 9/20 @ MINNESOTA - white mesh (BDSullivan)
Week 2 - 9/28 @ BALTIMORE (Mon. Nt.) - white mesh (Bill)
Week 3 - 10/4 @ DENVER - white mesh (Bill)
Week 9 - 11/15 @ PITTSBURGH - white durene (Bill)
Week 13 - 12/12 @ OAKLAND (Sat.) - white mesh (Mako)
Week 14 - 12/20 @ SAN DIEGO

Red jerseys worn...
Week 4 - 10/11 home vs BOSTON - red mesh (Bill)
Week 5 - 10/18 @ CINCINNATI - red durene (BDSullivan)
Week 6 - 10/25 home vs DALLAS - red mesh (BDSullivan)
Week 7 - 11/1 home vs OAKLAND - red mesh (Mako)
Week 8 - 11/8 home vs HOUSTON - red mesh (BDSullivan)
Week 10 - 11/22 home vs ST. LOUIS - red durene (BDSullivan)
Week 11 - 11/29 home vs SAN DIEGO - red durene (BDSullivan)
Week 12 - 12/6 home vs DENVER - red durene (BDSullivan)


We need help pinpointing which games wore the mesh and which wore the durene. What can our guys at the GUD-verse dig up?
Bill

I agree!

Somehow missed these on Getty...

Definitely white durene.

And...
Week 2 @ Baltimore

Definitely white mesh.

I'd say white mesh. The letters are pretty tall and seems to be a thicker outline on the numbers than in the white durene photo of Willie Lanier above.

Week 1 @ Minnesota--Presumably White Mesh:

Week 6 vs. Dallas--Not Sure (go to this shaky video at just after 8 min. mark)

Week 1 at Minnesota was definitely mesh. The Vikes themselves wore the purple stripeless mesh in this one.

I'd say Week 6 was red mesh, too.
Gametime temp was 64 degrees.
This screen grab seems to show large/tall letters on the nearest Chief and the one in the background seems to have fairly smallish chest numbers.

Week 5 - too hard to tell
Week 8 - I'm calling red mesh
Week 10,11,12 - I'm calling all three red durene

The Week 9 game in Pittsburgh was 45 degrees and KC was clearly wearing durene.
The game against Cincy was a month earlier in almost identical conditions - 49 degrees.

The bottom image doesn't seem to show the short, squattiness of the typical mesh numbers.
This definitely looks to be red durene.
Good find!

Given the 57 degree temp at kickoff and the short stature of the torso numbers, I'm calling this mesh but reserve the right to change my mind if a better shot is found Smile
