With the season winding down, I thought it would be good to start working again on our remaining gaps...
Here's what's left of 1956. Remember, we need solid photographic proof.

What we are unsure of is in bold...

10/6 (N) - DET @ BALT
12/2 (D) – SF @ BALT
12/9 (D) – PHIL @ WASH
12/16 (D) – PITT @ Wash

Colts are DEFINITELY wearing white, while the Lion (on the ground in the back) has a dark jersey on:

Nice one!
I wish we could find a reliable source for the 53-56 Colts.
Missing shots from quite a few of their games.

Spotted this for the December 16 game PITT @ WASH...

Is that white of a Steeler jersey behind Al Dorow's backside? The story says the field was extremely muddy and I would think that a black jersey would appear as dark as the Skins' burgundy.

Around the spine of the Steeler player, there also appears to be at least a hint of white.

REALLY happy with this one.
Page 6 shows both Skins and Eagles full combos.
