1967-69 NFL-AFL Exhibitions

Post  BD Sullivan on Thu Oct 24, 2013 12:22 pm

In compiling a list of who wore what for the 72 NFL-AFL exhibition games played from 1967-69, I've got uniform info on all but five contests. After the short list, I'm noting two trends that likely continued, but since I have no visual proof, can't confirm:

8/19/67: Philadelphia vs. NY Jets (@ Cincinnati, OH)
*8/5/68: Detroit @ Buffalo
8/25/68: Cincinnati vs. Pittsburgh (@ Morgantown, WV)
**8/22/69: Chicago @ Houston
8/30/69: Cincinnati @ Pittsburgh (played at Forbes Field)

*Buffalo wore blue jerseys in their only other home appearance against an NFL team that year (Baltimore 8/22)
**Houston wore white jerseys in their other two home appearances versus NFL teams that year (Baltimore 8/15, Dallas 8/29)

There looks to be a photo of the Bears-Oilers game on this page, but you need to subscribe to see it clearer...

Thanks; it looks like you can make out the "C" on the Bears helmet, which means they wore the dark jerseys as expected.
