Jersey and Helmet Styles

Here are the various styles of jerseys and helmets used by the Eagles during this blog's time period.


For most of the 1960s, the Eagles wore a plain green jersey, with small numbers on the sleeves.

At some point prior to 1966, narrow and wide stripes were added to the sleeves.

From 1966 to 1969, the jerseys had double striping around the shoulders. Topps showed this jersey as late as 1973 on some cards.

In 1970 the team went back to the early-1960s look. Just solid green, with no striping.

In 1972 they added a black outline to the numbers.

A major change occurred in 1974, adding lots of stripes to the sleeves and moving the numbers up on top of the shoulders. As time went on, these jerseys became see-through.

 Helmets: The Eagles wore green helmets with silver wings prior to the 1969 season.

For 1969 home games, and all games in 1970 to 1973, they wore white helmets with green wings. The colors were reversed for away games in 1969 - green helmets with white wings.

They went back to green helmets in 1974, this time with two-tone wings.
