Interesting observation - I know the Giants went to white in 1975. It looks like 1974 might've been a mix of white and black.

Giants vs Washington 9/15/74


Giants at Washington 10/20/74


Giants at Detroit 11/17/74



Giants at St.Louis 12/15/74

Hard to tell. I definitely think the bottoms of those cleats are green - not that that means anything, though.

This video from the Eagles' site seems to confirm that black cleats were the majority - except for WRs, maybe - in 1973.

Morning, Larry!

This video from the Eagles' site seems to show mostly black cleats for everyone (not green) - except for the WRs - in 1973.
