Packers Pro Shop To Have Third Jersey Collection Tuesday

Posted Jul 26, 2010

Team To Wear Third Jersey Dec. 5 Against San Francisco 49ers.


The Packers third jersey, a re-creation of the team’s uniform from 1929, the year of Green Bay’s first world championship, will be available to fans exclusively at the Packers Pro Shop July 27-29, both in the store and online at www.PackersProShop.com.

The third jersey collection, which also includes a variety of sideline apparel, additionally will be available all season after the exclusive window this week at the Pro Shop.

“There’s been a lot of anticipation for the jerseys and clothing, and we’re excited to have them available for fans,” said Kate Hogan, Packers director of retail operations. “We have put together a selection that we feel brings back the glory from 1929 in a new and different way, and will appeal to all Packers fans.”

The Packers will wear the third jersey at Lambeau Field Dec. 5 against the San Francisco 49ers.

The jersey is navy blue with the number on the front inside a gold circle. The circle and number are enlarged slightly from their 1929 size to comply with NFL regulations regarding jersey numbers. An enlarged number is also on the back, with a nameplate above the number, another modification from the 1929 jersey.

The helmet is a solid brown color without a logo to best simulate the leather helmets worn during the era. The uniform pants are a tan color.

The sideline apparel theme also dates back to the 1920s, with many of the selections featuring “Acme Packers,” the team moniker from the 1921-22 seasons.

The collection will be available online at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday at www.PackersProShop.com.The uniform was unveiled this past March at Packers Fan Fest.

    For now, Ohio State’s Curtis Samuel is listed as a wide receiver, but he did just as much damage as a running back and returner in college as well. That leaves his NFL future somewhat in doubt, as far as where he fits best, but that’s nothing new to this explosive, hybrid weapon.

    A first-team All-Big Ten selection two years in a row at guard, Pat Elflein was asked to move to center in 2016. How did he do?
