Do you love the throwback uniforms that the Green Bay Packers have worn for the past five years? Do you long for a day when you could barely read the numbers on the front of the jerseys and when players wore brown pants?
If so, then we have bad news for you - those uniforms are on their way out. The Green Bay Press-Gazette's Wes Hodkiewicz confirmed that with team CEO Mark Murphy at the NFL Meetings on Wednesday:
This comes as no big shock, as the Packers Pro Shop has had the Acme Packers gear on sale for a while now. Still, it's nice to finally have official confirmation from the head of the organization.
Of course, the question becomes what sort of throwback are we looking at? A replica of the uniforms worn in the 1940s (or the road version here) seems unlikely, as the Packers wore those in 1994. Perhaps the early-50s era uniforms, with the gold numbers on green jerseys, might make a comeback? Otherwise, the Packers' uniforms haven't changed much (aside from a few changes in sleeve and pants stripes) since the days of Vince Lombardi.
What do you think we'll see when the new uniform is announced?
