    Does anyone know anything about the throwback uniforms that we are supposed to wear this season? I heard they will be different from the Acme ones that we have wore the last 5 seasons.

    as far as I know nothing has been announced... My best educated guess would be something from 1927,28 or 1935,36

    35,36 would be my choice

    '35 was the first time the color green was used in the uniform. It's a good bet that might be the one--but they were pretty homely, imo.

    Wow those are homely uniforms. Taken in 1935, the actual colors may not be coming through but sure looks like green and gold to me! Thx JBlood.

    I hope these are the uniforms they use.
    I like them, but then I'm an old timer.

    Yes, the "13 vertical stripes" fit nicely with our current number of Championships. I'd pretty much be ok with anything the Packers come up with, as long as they reproduce the original uniform as closely as possible.

    Here is the definitive site for the history of Packers uniforms through the years: http://packersuniforms.blogspot.com/2010/05/free-market-is-alive-and-well.html

    I'm old enough to remember some of the '50s uniforms, but since there was very little color tv I guess I never knew what was blue and what was green. I like them both.

    I really like the potential of the 23 jersey. You would have to add numbers and name plates. I think you make the jersey solid gold and then have them wear the compression sleeves with the stripes. Not sure what they would wear for pants with that look.

    Chance runs a great site. He is at the the top of my list for Packer fans I would most like to sit and talk to.

    (Helmets is 2nd but he wont ever tell me about his collection)

    I do as well, I would want to see navy pants to go along with the yellow/gold tops.

    This is a Great guess.. I like these. Since they have NFL uniform code this can fit with todays code regarding numbers and what ever else is required on the jersey. For example the old Jerseys that said Acme Packers on the front would not qualify bc they want the number on the front of the shirt.

    I like this style, but wish they had gone with a new throwback.

    whats strange is that Nike and GB would go with a style that you can sill get. The mitchell and Ness version is still available, and sells for less than the Nike version.

    i have the Mitchell and Ness version and I only wesr the throwbacks on the days they wear the throw back uniform, since the Nike version is not much different from the Mitchell version, i dont think will be getting the Nike version, im just going to wear the mitchell version.

    Two now.

    I actually like those 1935 uniforms without the long sleeves of course. Players wouldn't like it though. Covers the guns and the tats.

    Reuttgers was solid. I suspect he's a good educator.
