Favorite Unis

I've been a Redskins fan for quite some time as you may already know. The Redskins have had numerous uniforms over their nearly 80 year history, and no major changes since the early 70's. 

These uniforms I believe to be my favorite. Here's the burgundy version. I don't like that the stripes on the shoulders are missing from that one. 

My favorite helmet is unquestionably this one. There are people who agree with me, as there are recreations of the helmet for a possible campaign to bring it back. My favorite of those is this one.

The rest of the helmets by specific year:

The Skins wore the 1970-71 helmet during the September 27th game versus the NY Giants during the 2007 season.

They also wore the 1965-69 helmet for home games during the 2002 season.

And During the 1994 season, all teams in the league wore a throwback (retail home and away). This is the helmet.

The Boston Redskins 1933-1936

The redskins began their existence in 1932 as the Boston Braves, but they changed their name after one season to the Redskins.
After doing some searching, they wore these uniforms. Cliff Battles in Boston Braves Gear. Turk Edwards. 
While they were still in Boston, they signed their most memorable and most historic player of Redskins history. Sammy Baugh was the "Father of the Forward Pass", and the only player in NFL history to lead the league in passing, punting, and interceptions in the season. You can read more about him here.

The Washington Redskins 1937-present

The redskins had an interesting number font at some point according to this photo. Judging by this team photo, I believe it was 1937 (look at the gentleman wearing 48 in the front row. his 8 is different from others in the photo) but the font could have been used in the 35-36 seasons.

During the 1982 strike, the Redskins changed their helmet design from this logo, to this logo. Only one player, Joe Washington, did not make the logo switch because his helmet was of a special design

Here's a poster that you can buy at most Redskins stores that shows the jersey through the years.

Tomorrow look for a discussion of Sunday's loss to the Lambs.
