Hi guys,

it seems the Raiders played at least one game wearing the previous year's unis

1963 Raiders AP630804020

Head Coach Al Davis of the Oakland Raiders, who is also general manager, shows deep concern as he watches his players in action at Youell Field in Oakland, August 4, 1963 against the Boston Patriots in first exhibition game of the season. Davis had a happier appearance after the game ended, with Oakland upsetting Boston, 24 to 17. Davis took over his dual post at Oakland last spring. (AP Photo)

Golly I love the Oakland Tribune!

Looks as though the Raiders wore 1962 unis for the ENTIRE Preseason.

8-17-63 vs KC (@ Seattle) - white '62 unis
1963 Raiders 1963_010

8-31-63 @ SD - black '62 unis (this was the last preseason game)
1963 Raiders 1963_011

I'll get this in the pipeline. In hindsight this shouldn't be a surprise. I remember seeing a photo of Al Davis standing between 2 Raiders at a practice with one in the old helmet and the other in the new silver and black one. Oh, here it is...

Hi guys,
it's been awhile!
No free time at all the last couple of months...

I think it's not at the top of your to-do list, with the new Nike uniforms and all... but you have to add the 1962 uniforms as preseason only for the '63 Raiders!

Back in July 2011 I wrote in the forum that, to my knowledge, the font in 1962 remained the same as 1961.

Now I have a photo to prove I was right

That's Bill Hudson (Chargers 1961-1962, Patriots 1963) pressuring Cotton Davidson.
The Raiders obtained Davidson via trade during the '62 season, Bill Hudson was traded to Patriots on 1963-07-18 (according to this site), so the photo is from the 1962 season.

I found that photo on Tales from the American Football League, one of my favorite sources.
