Chargers shoulder bolt

Post  drjwtexas on Fri Jun 24, 2011 4:40 am

Great web site, it’s referenced on Jomo's SportsPicks Customizer Forum for guys who made custom McFarlane football figures.

I do have one question on the Chargers shoulder bolt and direction of the bolt.
Here is a picture from 1965 with the center of the bolt to the inside:



Here are some pictures after 1968 with center of the bolt to the outside.



Anyone tracking the differences? I have no idea when they changed.
Take Care

Looks like it was 1967 when they made the switch, according to this excellent timeline on the Chargers website:

Here's a good one...October 15, 1961.

Jeff Kemp #15 has his bolt center on the outside, Ron Mix #74 has his bolt center on the inside.

drjwtexas,

We are simply using the most prevalent shoulder bolt design for each season. There are likely instances where the Chargers had center bolt up/center bolt down variations for each season. However, it was a GUD decision to just show the shoulder design used by most players for that particular season. We trust you understand.

This site has been a very helpful source for the Chargers uni history:

Thanks for the continued interest and assistance!

Smile
