1929 was a good year in Green Bay Packers history and that’s why the team will be wearing, for the third time in four years, its throwback blue and gold uniforms again this season when they host the Cleveland Browns Sunday, Oct. 20.

The 1929 blue and gold uniforms with the chocolate brown helmets will be worn by the Packers next season for the third time. They wore them in 2010 against the San Francisco 49ers and again in 2011 at home against the St. Louis Rams. Both games were wins for the Packers. They defeated 49ers in 2010, 34-16, and also won against the Rams, 24-3.

For whatever reason, the Packers did not wear the blues in 2012.

The uniform is based on the duds worn by the Packers’ first championship team and features the front jersey number in a gold circle. A full-sized number adorns the back along with player names to conform with today’s NFL uniform rules.

The uniform also features tan pants and the milk chocolate helmets that simulate the leathered head gear worn back in 1929.

Some of you out there may remember that it was Vince Lombardi who made the change from the blue and gold colors to the green and gold the team now wears.

Tell us what you think, Packers fans … are these uniforms one of the best throwbacks in the NFL or do you have to avert your eyes?
