tBBP Posted March 18, 2010 Share Posted March 18, 2010 Two things about helmets back then that are interesting are how some guys had makeshift face masks - apparently the two-bar wasn't out yet at this point...For the longest time, I've been trying to figure out exactly how the numbers were applied onto the KC Chefs' jerseys back in those days--they never appeared heat-pressed, nor did they appear to be tackle-twill to me, probably because they were so "wrinkly". And now I think I see why...the numbers themselves appear to be another piece of fabric with embroidery on the edges. (I know there's another term for this, but I can't think of what it is.) Interesting application method. I can't recall ever having seen any other NFL team's numbers applied that way. (On another note, I've noticed that I've become pretty obsessed with jersey numbers lately. Don't know what that's about...) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
