Packers unveil 1950s-inspired throwback jerseys

Green Bay Packers

The Packers will be sporting a new throwback jersey for their October 24 game against the Washington Football Team.

The team unveiled a new look inspired by uniforms they wore from 1950 to 1953 on Thursday. The Packers have worn blue and gold throwbacks from the 1940s in recent seasons, but the new ones are all green with gold numbers and stripes.

“The 1950s were one of the most interesting times in our organization’s rich history, creating the bridge between two of the greatest eras in pro football,” Packers president/CEO Mark Murphy said in a statement. “With the NFL growing rapidly, this time period set the stage for the construction of Lambeau Field and for the team’s success in the 1960s and beyond. We hope our fans enjoy celebrating our history with this new alternate uniform.”

As interesting as the times might have been for the Packers, the 1950-53 years were not successful ones on the field. The team went 14-31-1 under Gene Ronzani and lost their final two games in 1953 after Ronzani retired. We’ll see if they can have more luck in those jerseys this time around.

  1. Based on that pic, I’d say that uniform is a significant upgrade to their current uniforms… I know some people, actually a lot of people, prefer the “classic” looks, I just dont. The Colts? AWFUL. The Packers? Awful. You get the idea. But there is a fine line between making improvements and ruining the look. Seahawks and Jags are an example of “went too far”. Cleveland had no hope with those colors. Teams like the Ravens, Bucs, Patriots, Dolphins, Texans all have great uniforms. Packers, Colts, Steelers, WFT, Cowboys, meh.

    I know a lot of people are hating this post, and thats fine. Not saying I’m right, I just dont understand the love for many of the “classics”.

  2. Love them! What a rich history this team has, and it should be brought to light. The 50’s were not the best in the golden age for the green and gold so to give that era some pub is long overdue. Great throwbacks. Go Pack Go!!

  3. Those are sweet!

    Best throwback unis in the league. I am not big on throwbacks, but I plan to get a couple of these jerseys. Get ’em autographed, and framed. These are music/sports cave worthy.

    You think thats crazy, wait for this. I HATE the old red Patriot uniforms that everyone loves. Are we just going to ignore that the Patriots are representative of the revolutionary war era minutemen (who wore Navy) and fought the British (who wore Red). It just doesnt make sense to me. The logo, sure, I like the logo. But the uniforms, no. I’m just crazy like that.

  6. If these jerseys were from an era of unlucky outcomes, why bring them back, even if they look good?

  7. To call that “gold” is simply ridiculous. That “gold” is straight up Process Yellow from the Pantone Color System. …And do these also pass for their “color rush” unis? Yuck.

    Real Packer fans call it School Bus Yellow!

  9. Went over to Packers Pro after practice and nabbed a #12 and #23 throwback. Aaron Jones and Davante are the others available. More soon.

    At Taverne(correct) In The Sky for lunch.

    Practice was intense. Cobbie involved in a fight. Aaron broke it up.

    Aww cute did your parents let you stay to try and get high fives from the players while you pushed kids out of the way again?

  11. Maybe free donated his bike to one of the players before practice and he has the bicycle seat framed now?
