I know the database does not show helmet numbers at the present time, but I came across something new and interesting today that I had never been aware of.

The Giants used to have red numbers on the back of their helmets.

Of course, they went to the bold white numbers on both the front and back in 1957, and kept them until they introduced the white stripes in 1975. I never had any idea about these red numbers until I saw them today while watching the film highlights of the 1956 championship game against Chicago. I did my best to get a couple of screen grabs. I know they're not great, but you can make them out. I guess these red numbers don't show up on the B/W photos, so I have no idea when the originally showed up.

Here's the link to the video. FF to 14:40.
