Third Jersey (ACME Packers) Game
Originally unveiled to the public at Fan Fest in March 2010, the Packers developed a third jersey and uniform which served as a re-creation of the team’s uniform from 1929, the year of Green Bay’s first world championship. The Packers donned the third jersey for their showdown with the San Francisco 49ers in Week 13 of the 2010 season, against the St. Louis Rams in Week 6 of the 2011 season and against the Cleveland Browns in Week 7 of the 2013 season.
This Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles, the Packers will bring back the predominantly navy blue jersey, bearing an oversized gold circle on the chest with large navy blue numbers will remind fans, players and all spectators of the unique history and tradition of the Green Bay Packers organization. Due to NFL helmet guidelines, the team will utilize its regular gold helmet without the logo and stripes. A similar helmet arrangement was used by the Packers during NFL “throwback” games in 1994 and 2001.
Packers coaching staff and team personnel also will be wearing the third jersey sideline apparel, which dates back to the 1920s, with many of the selections featuring “Acme Packers,” the team moniker from the 1921-22 seasons.
For fans, uniforms, sideline apparel and other Acme Packers apparel will continue to be available at the Packers Pro Shop, both in the store andonline.
