I know it’s officially baseball season and all, but the NFL draft begins today, and that’s all it takes to get me excited about the upcoming football season. I have been trying to get my hands on a copy of The Illustrated History of the American Football Uniform for quite awhile now, but it appears to be decades out-of-print and very hard to find. Here are a few favorite images I have saved.
Decatur Staleys (aka: da Bears!), 1922 & Green Bay Packers, 1921
New York Giants, 1934 & Detroit Lions, 1940
Chicago Bears, 1936 & Los Angeles Rams, 1948
Duluth Eskimos 1926 & Cleveland Browns, 1950
