Historic, third jersey to be worn against Cleveland Oct. 20

Posted Sep 18, 2013

Third jersey fan apparel collection 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 Week 7 Packers-Cleveland game on Oct. 20.

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 the 2010 Packers-49ers game, the re-created 1929 uniform includes tan pants, navy blue socks and black shoes. Due to new NFL helmet guidelines, the team this year will utilize its regular gold helmet without the logo and stripes. A similar helmet arrangement was used by the Packers during NFL “throwback” games in 1994 and 2001.

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 www.PackersProShop.com.

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