thanks, Mako -- on that third one, you can kinda see the difference in material, like we discussed with the 49ers...

mako,
Were they purple ALL 3 years (62,63,64)? Or just 64?

In my collection of wire photos I have a lot of undated photos so I have to rely on Corbis

Vikings 1960s purple pants stripes U1347839

Paul Hornung, Green Bay Packer back, has a lot of room as he goes over for a touchdown from the 7 yard line in the first quarter of the Packer-Minnesota Viking game. Viking linebacker (55) Cliff Livingston gets one hand on Hornung. (63) is Packer guard Fred Thurston.
1962 September 16
If 55 is Livingston, he played only in '62 with the Vikings

No pics for '63... I will continue the search

Yeah I came up with this one from 62 or 63 - the 3 equal striped socks - shows Yellow-White-Yellow on pants

I think the White-Yellow-White likely is only 1964

that 1962 pic #55 (posted by Mako) does look like it is gold-white-gold (i.e. not the 1964 change, but it is hard to tell in the B&W), but the Tarkenton is clearer

No, no.... I'm on your side! I did mean "yellow" -- the gold is a 49ers color!

Regarding the infamous 10/11/64 game between the Vikings and Lions where the two teams both began the game wearing light jerseys, here's a not-so-great B & W photo of Minny DB Billy Butler in his monochromatic purple outfit. Interestingly, none of the game accounts I saw mention the uniform screwup:
