Pittsburgh Pirates

These are Steelers' throwbacks. I think this is a good looking set, with a unique helmet, the backside pant stripes, and the classic gold and black. This also give us a different look than what their current throwback presents.

Detroit Lions

Alright, so its been awhile, but I've got a few more of these done. Here are the Lions. This isn't much different than their Thanksgiving set, the only difference being that they actually used two different numbers fonts on the front and back. I'm not sure if there is a rule about that now, but if they were to bust those out on Thanksgiving they would be as close to authentic as they could probably get.

Great work! Crazy to see pants stripes on the backs of the legs. Great, another reason for the ladies to look at the "tight pants".

Need some Boston Redskins with the Indian head on the chest.

If you want to go with numbers on the front, use this from the later 30s/40s:

Don't worry I've got the Redskins ready to go. Unfortunately there wasn't an Indian head on the jersey that year. This was actually the year between the Indian on the chest, and and the logos on the sleeves.

New York Giants

The Giants provide a lot of variation from the other teams at that time. They had a blue stripe around the edge of the helmet and blue side panels, no other team had that. The stripes on the back of the pants, which were surprisingly common during that time, were strange to me, but awesome at the same time. If would be so cool to see a NFL team wear a throwback like this.

These all look great and all...but what is the black and brown circle on the sides of the helmets? Am I missing something here?

I'm not sure what you mean. The black circle around the ear hole was just how the helmet was designed. Is that what you mean?

Yeah, I guess so. I was just curious if that was a specific reason for it being there. I think the angle of the helmet makes it look a little weird.

I've actually considered just doing unique throwbacks for each team, I may do that once I finish up this season. I really want to do that Pirates' set, and the Eskimos would be perfect for the Vikings.

Looks good, but i ahve a problem with the striping. The white one has it on the shoulders and sleves, but the orange one has it only on the sleves. if these were to be a set it would be better if the striping was on the shoulders and the sleves on both jerseys.

As DPV713 said, that's how the uniforms looked that year. Why would I change that and present an inaccurate throwback?

Just a quick question: Will you include tan like pants for certain teams like the Packers or the Steelers? I would kill to see that kind of throwback look here on the boards.

Tan pants are definitely gonna be included.

So, 1936 had one of the more interesting years as far as uniforms go. There were a lot of unique looks at that time, and I thought it would make a great series. This is only an 8 team series, but I think it will still be fun and interesting.

Chicago Bears

First up are the Bears, they were my inspiration in this whole thing. I thought they were beautiful. The striped socks, the striped shoulders, the helmets, all of it. I definitely think it was a great look for them in their history.

C&C Please!

looks great but if you are doing throwbacks to the pre face mask era I think the mask should be the same color as the helmet...gray makes the mask very conspicuous (as opposed to blending in with the helmet) which defeats the purpose of achieving the look of the era.

one last thing I'd like to see the names left off.

I think a helmet-colored mask looks too modern (would be great if you were updating throwbacks to make modern sets inspired by these). Grey says football no matter what era you're replicating, and I think it's rather inconspicuous myself. The players of this era who did wear masks surely didn't wear helmet-colored masks. They were generall either grey or brownish-colored. I'll never understand these gents that seem to think that grey is such a distracting color, clashing with others and drawing attention to itself, when it really does the opposite, in my opinion.

Like andrew said, I don't see the problem with gray facemasks. Colored ones are definitely more modern.

Thanks for all the feedback! Its all very helpful. The one thing a lot of people asked for was stripes on an undershirt. The problem is, I don't have a template with an undershirt. Is there a version of this template with an undershirt?

Go to Paint Users Paridise, and it's listed as procombats tops under Football.

Boston Redskins

Honestly, the Redskins' uniforms aren't much different than the Lions, a very simple look with their classic colors. Unfortunately there was no Redskin head that year. I plan on changing this over to a unique throwback concept. When that happens, I'm sure whatever set I choose will have the head.
