Packers unveil throwback jersey for 2015
The Green Bay Packers will debut a new look in 2015 that’s entirely unoriginal. That’s because the new uniform is a throwback to the team’s unis from the 30’s and 40’s. The team unveiled the latest throwbacks at the annual shareholder’s meeting Tuesday.
The uniforms feature the team’s Acme Packers colors of navy blue and gold with the shoulders in gold and the torso in navy blue. The helmet is solid yellow.
Longtime Packers fans might remember the uniforms as those of the Don Hutson era. Hutson played from 1935 to 1945 and retired owning 19 NFL records. Younger fans might remember the uniforms too. They are very similar to throwback uniforms the team wore in 1994 as part of the NFL’s 75th anniversary season.
The Packers will wear the throwbacks at Lambeau on October 18th against San Diego.
