Redskins 1940 (?) - white jersey

Post  Mako Mameli on Sat Jun 29, 2013 11:20 am

Just found this undated photo. According to the database it should be the 1940 season.
The "head" is positioned higher than in the database's image. They seem to have 2-tone pants, too. White socks?



Dick_Todd - Ray_Flaherty - Sammy_Baugh, no other info

I think it's a sad commentary on my state of mind currently that the first thing I noticed was that their belts matched their pants!

We'll have to get word from Tim as to the authenticity of this jersey as to whether or not it was 'game-used.'

Of course, that was implied.

Redskins wore this (white) jersey November 10, 1940 for game at Brooklyn. Have not seen this particular photo before, but have seen game action pics from the WSH @ BRK game.

So we need to move the logo to the corners of the shoulders?

Yes, need to be hiked up and a little bigger AND...

I think the socks need to be all WHITE. Take note of Todd's and Slingin' Sam's calves!

Funny how the 1938 version still had the logos down on the biceps rather than on the tip of the shoulder.
