NY Giants 1960's vs 1970's

Post  maddog on Tue Sep 30, 2014 8:16 pm

Looking at some game used helmets from the 1960's and it looks like the helmet color was much lighter than in the 70's?
Does anyone know what color the helmet was during the 60's?
Having a hard time differentiating the shades Crying or Very sad

Thanks,

Charlie.

To the best of my knowledge,

and admittedly I am not familiar with the game used equipment world, the Giants always wore dark blue/navy blue shells from 1949-1999.

Here is a general photo timeline. I hope this helps.

Kyle rote 1953

Giants vs Pittsburgh 11/15/59


Giants vs Dallas 12/16/62


Jim Katkavage 1968


Fran Tarkenton 1970


Giants vs Washington 11/9/75


Doug Kotar circa 1977-1978


Giants vs Dallas 11/9/80


Giants vs San Francisco 10/8/84

Thanks Bigblue, that's what I thought, but if you go to Helmet Hut, they have a 1960's Homer Jones gamer that looks
much lighter thank those used pre '63 and post '68. I doubt that it's just lighting?

...and one more - Giants vs St.Louis Cardinals 12/17/67 - you can see the #45 on the top of his helmet.



You're right about that one on the Helmet Hut site, it seems unusually light, almost the same color as the blue jersey.
