Packers to wear third jersey on Sunday vs. 49ers

Posted by Duke Bobber on November 29, 2010 – 4:32 pm

If you’re wondering why Packers.com has a new look, it’s a temporary homage to the uniforms the Packers will wear this weekend vs. San Francisco.

On Sunday, the Packers will be wearing a third jersey that is a re-creation of the team’s uniform from 1929, the year of Green Bay’s first world championship when the team finished 12-0-1 under Curly Lambeau.

That year actually marked the first of three consecutive titles, as the Packers recorded a 34-5-2 cumulative record in official league games from 1929-31. The Packers have won 12 world championships in all.

”We wanted to celebrate the history and tradition of the Packers,” President/CEO Mark Murphy said when the jerseys were unveiled in March. “Those who remember history and follow the history of the Packers know it was a very successful era for the organization.”

The jersey is navy blue with the number on the front inside a gold circle. The circle and number are enlarged a bit 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 that wasn’t present in 1929.

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

When the Packers take the field on Sunday, it will be the seventh time in franchise history that the team has worn throwback jerseys and only the second time ever at Lambeau Field.

The last game the Packers wore a third jersey was in 2003 at Detroit on Thanksgiving Day. In that contest, the team paid tribute to the 1967 team with a re-creation of the uniforms from that season.

Green Bay also wore an alternate jersey on Thanksgiving Day at Detroit in 2001, sporting a look from 1939.

In 1994, the team wore 1937 uniforms in four contests as part of the NFL’s 75th anniversary season.

Here is a look at the six other games for which the Packers sported a third jersey:

Opponent/Date                                   Result
at Philadelphia, Sept. 18, 1994          L, 13-7
vs. Tampa Bay, Sept. 25, 1994           W, 30-3
at New England, Oct. 2, 1994             L, 17-16
at Chicago, Oct. 31, 1994                     W, 33-6
at Detroit, Nov. 22, 2001                     W, 29-27
at Detroit, Nov. 27, 2003                     L, 22-14

Take a look at the third jerseys, which were unveiled back in March.
