Packers to wear third jersey on Oct. 20 vs. Cleveland

After a one-year hiatus from wearing them, the Packers are slated to bring back the re-creation of their 1929 uniforms in Week 7 of the 2013 season, for a home game against Cleveland on Sunday, Oct. 20 (3:25 p.m. CT).

The Packers have worn the third jersey twice previously, in Week 13 of 2010 against San Francisco and in Week 6 of 2011 against St. Louis, both at Lambeau Field. The Packers beat the 49ers, 34-16, and the Rams, 24-3. The Packers did not wear the alternate uniforms during the 2012 season.

The third jersey is based on the Packers’ 1929 jerseys, which were blue with the jersey number in a gold circle on the front. The modern re-creation uses a larger gold circle and also includes a full-sized number on the back along with the player’s last name, to conform with NFL uniform regulations.

The alternate uniforms also feature tan pants and a solid brown helmet, representing the leather helmets that players of that era wore. The Packers won the first of their 13 NFL championships in 1929.
