cowboys early 70s? tripe stripe jerseys?

it appears that dallas had 3 stripes or at least mel renfro did after adopting the double outline on the helmet star logo. I think the photo is from 1971 or after. it looks like it was taken at Vet Stadium.

That must be the TV number that looks like a third stripe at the top.

this game used mel renfro jersey found on google search clearly only has two stripes used in the early 70s.  





What I also found is that Roger Staubach apparently had his blue 1969 jersey that did not have the black outline in his stripes.  Well at least that's what mitchell and ness thinks.  I can't find visual proof of this but there are several cowboys from the 1969 season that don't look like they have the black outline.

That blue 1969 jersey is curious for sure. You can't always trust throwbacks, but maybe there is something to that one?

OP is correct, the Cowboys DID wear 3 stripes at times in the early '60s:



I was sure I had seen some pics in the Meredith era that had this stripe pattern and I remembered this post.

After using their initial combinations for the 1960-63 seasons (and the 1964 preseason), the 'Boys began wearing combinations similar to what they still wear. The one difference is that for 1964-65, the jerseys had three sets of stripes rather than the typical two of today. In 1966, they wore the 3-stripe set for a few early season games before switching over to the 2-stripes we have today. To see which games featured 2-stripes and which featured the 3-stripes, consult the weekly matchups for 1966 here...
