Packers Throwback Uniforms Are Back: Your Need to Know
Those of you who love throwback uniforms, rejoice! The Green Bay Packers throwback uniforms will return in 2013 after a one-year hiatus.
They’ll make their appearance during the Packers Oct. 20 game against the Cleveland Browns.
Who is pumped about this? You, me, Aaron Rodgers and Tim Masthay!

The Packers unveiled these throwbacks in 2010 and they’re patterned after the team’s 1929 uniforms. The difference being the numbers on the chest of the originals were a lot smaller and the helmets were leather. Hence the reason the current throwback helmets are brown.
These were also the unis Donald Driver scored the greatest touchdown of his career in. Surely, you remember this.
On top of it all, the Packers are playing the Browns, who have worn throwback uniforms for their entire history.
