Historic, Third Jersey to be worn against Rams Oct. 16

Posted Aug 26, 2011

New Fan Apparel Collection To Be Available At Packers Pro Shop And Online

 The Green Bay Packers will bring back the team’s third jersey, a re-creation of the historic 1929 uniform worn by the franchise’s first NFL championship team, during the Packers-Rams game, Oct. 16, it was announced today.

 The predominantly navy blue jersey bearing an oversized gold circle on the chest with large navy blue numbers will remind fans, players and all spectators of the unique history and tradition of the Green Bay Packers organization.

 First unveiled during last year’s Packers-49ers game, the re-created 1929 uniform includes a solid brown color helmet, without a logo, to best simulate the leather helmets worn during the era, along with tan pants, navy blue socks and black shoes.

Packers coaching staff and team personnel also will be wearing the third jersey sideline apparel, which dates back to the 1920s, with many of the selections featuring “Acme Packers,” the team moniker from the 1921-22 seasons.

For fans, uniforms, sideline apparel and other Acme Packers apparel will continue to be available at the Packers Pro Shop, both in the store and online at the packersproshop.com

This year’s collection, which is currently available, includes several new items added to the already well-received line.
