10/10 @ Oakland: ? A terrible photo, but perhaps someone can make an educated guess:

I don't think that last one from LODI is going to help us. Too tough to make a call.

On the 9/19 Miami game I making the call that it was white mesh. The last photo - taken after the game- seems to show very wide numbers that are also kinda squat on the front. Typical for the mesh number font.

A check of the 12/6 Chicago Tribune shows White Durene in each of the three photos.

Nov 1, 1971 Palm Beach Post - p41 of 55

Looks to be very thin outline around the TV number 0 on Jerry Simmons' left arm.
The previous week was 60 degrees in Cleveland (85% humidity) and the Broncos clearly wore durene instead of mesh.
This game was 63 degrees in Philly (88% humidity) - almost identical conditions - and this looks to be orange durene as well.

The 11/14 Cincinnati @ Denver game. Unfortunately, the number of only Bronco (Floyd Little) is almost completely obscured:

Sometimes I get better luck checking a paper for the 'other team.' Any Ohio (or north Kentucky) papers with a better shot?

Week 4 - 10/10 - home vs Oakland

Another lousy photo (pg. 20), but perhaps someone can make something out:

We may need another photo for this one as the only Bronco is totally obscured by Ben Davidson (and his moustache!)
