The early part of the Green Bay Packers uniform history was tumultuous, much different from the stability seen to this day with the familiar green and gold look reaching an iconic status. But, little is known that since 1960 the team’s uniform actually has seen over a dozen subtle changes and this article depicts such changes for the Packers.
The Packers held a familiar ring to their look with some subtle differences. The helmet shells were gold and logoless, only depicting a green-white-green helmet stripe and either green or gold facemask. The home jersey was green with white numbering with TV numbers at the sides. The sleeve striping consisted of gold and white Northwestern stripes, identical to that of the Pittsburgh Steelers. The pants were gold with green-white-green striping on the pants. The green socks depicted the same Northwestern striping as the jersey sleeves and the shoes were black.
The road uniform depicted the same exact look except the jersey was white with green numbering, including a green-gold-green-gold-green sleeve striping pattern.
The familiar G-logo was added. This version of the logo was football-shaped, one that would become rounder throughout the years. Facemasks were also permanently gray.
NOB plates added. The helmet logo also became more oval-shaped.
