Next on the belt correction list - the Denver Broncos (and KC)!

Post  bigbluelarry on Tue Jun 25, 2013 4:51 pm

I'll apologize upfront Bill, but here's what I've found so far [this list is not yet comprehensive]

Working backward from 1977 - belts are blue
Denver @ Cincinnati 10/23/77


Denver @ San Diego 11/13/77


PreSeason Devner vs St.Louis 9/14/75


Denver vs San Diego 10/20/74


Denver vs Kansas City 10/7/73 {KC belts white}


Denver @ Pittsburgh 11/18/73


1972 - belts are white
Denver @ LA Rams 11/12/72


Denver @ Oakland 12/19/71 - white belts with the orange pants too



Denver vs Kansas City 10/4/70 - are these belts orange or blue?


1970 - orange belts with orange pants
Denver @ San Diego 11/8/70



Denver vs Kansas City 10/5/69 - white belts with white pants


Denver @ Kansas City 11/27/69 - blue belts with orange pants {KC belts white}


Denver @ Boston 11/3/68


Denver @ San Diego 10/20/68


More digging needs to be done!

Kansas City Chiefs - might as well finish the AFC West, right?

Kansas City vs Oakland 12/8/74 - red belts with white pants



Kansas City vs Cleveland 12/2/73


Kansas City vs NY Giants HOF Game Canton 7/29/72 - red belts with white pants

Kansas City @ Chicago pre season 1972


Kansas City @ San Diego 11/19/72 - white belts with red pants


Kansas City @ Atlanta 12/17/72


Kansas City @ NY Jets 11/7/71 red belts with white pants



Kansas City @ Detroit 11/25/71


Kansas City @ Oakland 12/12/70 - both black and white


Super Bowl IV - both black and white




Kansas City vs Oakland AFL Championship 1/4/70 - both black and white belts


Kansas City @ NY Jets 11/16/69


pre season 1969 - this pic is my favorite, what the hell is Jan Stenerud wearing here? There's no way that belt is team issued. It looks like he took it from a pair of bell bottoms at home!


Super Bowl I 1/15/67 - a mix of white and black belts




Kansas City vs Denver 11/27/69 - a mix of black and white belts with white pants




Kansas City @ Cincinnati 11/10/68

So here's what I see for your Denver fixes...

1977 - blue
1976 - blue
1975 - blue
1974 - blue
1973 - blue
1972 - white
1971 - white
1970 - orange on orange pants, blue (or black) on white pants
1969 - white on white pants (also blue or black on white pants), blue on orange pants
1968 - orange on orange pants, blue or black on white pants
1967 - white
1966 - blue or black
1965 - white and black belts
1964 - white
1963 - white
1962 - white

1965-70 seems like it is problematic as multiple combinations appear. What's the majority?

KC fixins

Post  Bill Schaefer on Thu Jun 27, 2013 4:51 pm

To summarize your KC finds...

1974 - red pants - ?
      - white pants - red belt

1973 - red pants - ?
      - white pants - red belt

1972 - red pants - white belt
      - white pants - red belt

1971 - red pants - white belts
      - white pants - red belt

1970 - red pants - white and black belts (see below)
      - white pants - white and black belts

1969 - red pants - white and black belts
      - white pants - white and black belts

1968 - red pants - (white and ?) black belts
      - white pants - white and black belts (see below)

1967 - red pants - white and black belts
      - white pants - white and black belts (see below)

We need more evidence to fill in gaps for these.

Post  Bill Schaefer on Thu Jun 27, 2013 4:55 pm

This fills in the red pants for 1970 KC...

Week 9 at Pittsburgh - white and black belts in red pants



We can also add black belts on both the white and red pants for 1968. (11/25/68 - HOU@KC & 12/14/68 KC@DEN)



Also add white and black belts for 1967's white pants from this 11/5/67 NYJ@KC photo

Even without seeing red pants from 1973-74, I'm seeing mis-matched belts and pants from 1971-74 (red on white and white on red).

I haven't seen white belts on the 1968 red pants yet but otherwise we have seen evidence of both black and white belts on both the red and the white pants from 1967-70.

I think '68-'69 is mostly blue on white, sometimes with a black or white substitution.
Prior years are mostly white, with some black showing up.

I think '71-'75 is predominantly red belts with white pants and white belts with red pants.
Prior to that its mostly white belts with both pants, with black belts being liberally substituted.

The KC/NYJ photo from 9/15/68 shows both black and white belts for 1968's white pants.

We can now clearly say that they wore both black and white belts with both sets of pants from 1967-70.

If we could get some 'red pants' photos from '73 and '74, we could also say that they wore the mismatched belts (red and white) with pants (white and red) from 1971-74.
