Hooded Football Shirt
Calling an Audible.
Football was different.
I’m not sure when the audible was invented, but I don’t think they were screaming things like “Omaha,” “Green 80,” “Tupac,” or “Blue 42” in 1924. The spread offense was not the norm.
Fields didn’t have hash marks. Goal posts (there were 2 at the time due to the “H” shape) were at the goal line, only to be moved to the back of the end zone in 1927, then moved up again to the goal line in 1933, then back again… you get the gist.
Things change. Evolve. Sometimes for the worse (Tampa Bay’s uniforms), sometimes for the better (instant replay). This is an example of the latter.
Hooded Football Shirt (No. 6058). We’ve called an audible on our own classic. Same vintage design but now in a quarter-zip, hooded style. The rumor is that they field-tested these back in the 20s, but too many guys nearly lost their heads (think a more extreme version of the horse-collar tackle). 100% cotton pique. Three-piece hood with drawcord and metal zipper. Underarm gusset. Self-fabric elbow patches with quilting. Same striking bold colors; better for weathering the elements at Lambeau. Imported.
