The Arizona Cardinals are technically one of the oldest teams in the NFL. The origins of the franchise date back to 1898 when Chris O'Brien formed the Morgan Athletic Club in Chicago, Illinois.
Uniform used until 2004
The Arizona Cardinals' uniforms have stayed consistently the same over a number of years. When the team was originally in Chicago they used the cardinal red jerseys that O'Brien bought. Since then, no matter the location of the franchise, they have worn cardinal red jerseys at home. Only minor details have changed since the early years of the team.
When the team moved to Arizona, the state flag was added to the sleeves of the jerseys. In the spring of 2005, the Cardinals introduced their first major uniform changes in over a century.
