  1. Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there. Found this picture of my dad from 1948 and, of course, decided to do a modern template throwback to the uniform. The helmet is accurate (or maybe "accurate") but the pants are a complete guess. I've only seen grainy B and W pictures and the color is indistinct.
  2. I'm a big fan of that uniform, too. Do you mean you just want to see it rendered on this template, or do you want to see an update of it? I'm not sure what I'd change on it, although they'd never use that name or logo today.
  3. And, if they want to keep blue and red, we can have a slight variation with crimson and blue/gray.
  4. Next, wine and orange. Again, very unique color scheme, and a connection to both the Browns and the Cavaliers.
  5. I did this Cleveland Spiders' concept, and I'm trying out various color schemes. Obviously they could keep navy and red (in fact, my guess is they will), but rebranding is a good opportunity to reduce MLB's overabundance of navy/red teams. First, brown and scarlet. Completely unique color scheme in sports and an easy connection to the Cleveland Browns.
  6. Well, thanks so much to @NicDB for the initial catch and to you for the corroboration. I couldn't stop myself from correcting the concepts and reposting... And all the talk recently about the new Packers throwback, and the possibilities of it being the 1936 version made me want to go back and add that one, too. It's a beaut. Also, thanks for the kind words for the concept in general. I guess as a rule I like all my concepts or I wouldn't post them, but this one does seem to be a no brainer.
  7. Hmmm... I've seen that picture before, but I've always suspected it was artificially colored, and therefore might be incorrect. Gridiron database has them in canvas colored pants that season, although I'm sure that site has it's mistakes... Hey, @Gothamite, you want to weigh in? Did the '44 Packers wear gold pants, or tan/canvas pants?
  8. Adding a couple of AFC teams with the "all-white alternate, one throwback" plan....
  9. Yeah, I shouldn't have said "60's numbers" like that was an actual thing. It's just a quirk I'd seen in some old pictures that some jerseys had a slightly different font, specifically the 1,2,4, and 7. I just thought it gave a nice subtle vintage feel that really didn't overly alter the basic aesthetic. So are you saying the pants for that uniform were yellow/gold and not that standard brown/tan canvas color?
  10. Yeah, that's what some people here in Southeast Michigan are pretty upset about. Back when the Nassar stuff hit, ESPN went really hard after MSU, even implying that Izzo and Dantonio must have known and should be called to the carpet over it. Now the same thing is happening at U of M, only this time directly tied to football, and it's just crickets, nationally. With all the on-air personalities with Wolverine ties at ESPN makes you wonder.
  11. Is what's happening at the University of Michigan getting any play nationally? Today's statement from Bo Schembechler's kid is pretty stunning.
  12. Believe it or not, it's apparently from Packer.com! https://www.packers.com/news/infographic-100-seasons-of-packers-uniforms
  13. Just some google image search rabbit hole I crawled through. I'll see if I can retrace my steps and let you know
  14. Gridiron Database has them wearing a cream/off white color on the numbers and stripes. On my computer it's so light it's easy to miss. On my phone I can tell the back numbers didn't get the fill. Thanks for the catch. I'll fix it.
