Based on a photo we received from Leo Strawn...

I set out to identify this game.

PFA does not list any preseason contests between DEN & KC for 1967 and 1968 - likely years this combo could have been worn by Denver.

HOWEVER...
It turns out that the teams did play each other on 7/24/67 in KC's 'fourth annual Grocery bowl.'
Here is the article from the KC Times...

These may never get ID'd.

Two new finds from Bill.

Both are from the Steelers in 1946 - note that they are wearing their 1945 jerseys that do not have sleeve stripes:

The newly re-christened Brooklyn (Dodgers) Tigers headed west to Cheyenne, Wyoming, to play the Ft. Warren Broncos...and lost. This would mark the last time that an NFL team would lose to a non-NFL team (not counting AFL/NFL games).

Missing Uniform Info on Preseason Games from 1950-Present? - Page 9 Empty Major "White Whale" found!

Post  Bill Schaefer on Sun May 05, 2019 9:35 am

Despite suffering a $10 1-day membership, I found 2 photos from the 8/24/46 SD Union-Tribune for the 49ers vs. Dons game played in San Diego.
Of note...
SF is wearing red jerseys with serifed font numbers. (They went sans-serifs on their red jerseys during the regular season.)
LA is wearing red/blue "spider-striped" leather helmets. (They wore plain red helmets during the regular season.)
