The Green Bay Packers saga began in 1921 as one of the first teams in the NFL. They are the third oldest team. The nickname Packers came about when the Indian Packing Company out of Green Bay, Wisconsin, agreed to sponsor a local pro football team.
The Packers have gone through a series of uniform changes over the years, but they have consistently used the color yellow.
In 1950, the home jerseys were a bright green with gold lettering. They wore shiny green pants with a gold stripe. At this point there were still a lot of changes in the uniform, and it did not seem so uniform.
The Green Bay Packers have retired the following jerseys: #3 Tony Canadeo, #14 Don Hutson, #15 Bart Starr, and #66 Ray Nitschke.
