Packers to wear 1950s-inspired uniform for Jets game
GREEN BAY, Wis. — The Packers are throwing things back next month with uniforms inspired by the team’s look from the 1950s.
The classic look will be worn during the game against the New York Jets on October 16. The team announced the move on Wednesday.

The uniforms are green, with gold numbers and stripes. The helmet is solid gold and the iconic ‘G’ is missing from both sides. The look pays homage to the teams from 1950 to 1953, the second time in team history that the Packers donned the green and gold.
The teams of the early 50s were not great, but the decade was a historic one, culminating in the hiring of legendary coach Vince Lombardi in 1959.
This is the second time in two seasons that the Packers have worn the 50s throwbacks. The look made its debut on October 24, 2021, in a game against Washington. Green Bay won that game, 24-10, thanks to three touchdown passes from Aaron Rodgers and a Mason Crosby field goal.
