My CFL Uniform Database

Recommended Posts

https://imgur.com/a/o4ujGwJ - For a while, I've always wanted to see a CFL Uniform Database (because of the Gridiron Uniform Database), but there has been somewhat of a dearth of information on uniforms from the team over the years, especially before the mid-1970s.

 

With that said, here is what I have (as of right now) for my CFL Uniform Database. It covers only the seasons from 1978 to 1993 (the first U.S. season for the CFL). I hope in the future to get all seasons after 1993 and before 1978 (up to 1958, the establishment of the CFL, so I don't end up in a bottomless pit of research).

 

I hope you all like this. If anybody wants to help me with this CFL Uniform Database, I'm all ears. Cheers. :D

I'm in for helping out! Always wanted to see something like this. As a TiCats fan, I've always wanted to see our uniforms from start to present

^ Sure. :) As I said, I am all ears (or on a message board, all eyes).

That's awesome! I've hoped for a similar CFL database like the Gridiron Uniform Database too. Good for you for taking it on. I've done some research myself, but mainly for the past 30 years. It's pretty difficult finding images for the CFL considering not all games used to even be televised. It looks like you have a good grasp on it since your info looks pretty accurate at first glance, but let me know if you need a hand. Are you also looking at doing a weekly match-up tracker?

I'm glad to see this.  I have an off-and-on CFL fixation, so it's good to see it getting some love around here.

 

Keep up the good work!

Uni Watch had some information when Leo Strawn provided some information.   Articles (two precious article are mentioned and linked to) are from a couple years ago so has quite a bit of "link rot" (if you could contact Leo, he may have a lot of valuable information)
