Don’t read if you don’t remember 1960

The recent discussion about player’s names on the back of jerseys reminded me when names originally were placed on uniforms.  As I recall, the old AFL was the first to add names (along with red penalty flags) but not in the jerseys.  The Dallas Texans, for at least one season, had names above the hips in the back if player’s pants.  I have looked and looked fir a photo, as the GMG rule is “no photo, it didn’t happen.”  The names on pants seemed odd then as today.  However, it made a lot of sense for down linemen and any player in a 3 or 4 point stance.  Search your old Dallas Texans memorabilia and see if you see a name on the hips.
