Denver Broncos uniform and uniform color history

If you love the Denver Broncos and their colorful history, then you’re going to love this terrific two-minute video by NFL Films which chronicles the uniform color history of the Broncos franchise from its founding in Denver in 1960 as part of the upstart AFL – American Football League – to the modern era. Narrated by Scott Graham, one of the great voices of NFL Films, this video features three uniform history experts: Joe Horrigan who is VP Communications and Exhibits at the Pro Football Hall of Fame where he has worked for more than 35 years; Michael MacCambridge, author of “America’s Game: The Epic Story of How Pro Football Captured A Nation” and many other books as well as editor of the massive “ESPN College Football Encyclopedia”; and Scott Sillcox, sports uniform historian.

If you are a huge Broncos fan, you might be interested to know that the 13 pieces of original artwork used to create the Broncos’ famous uniform evolution poster — the actual hand-painted watercolor paintings — are available for sale at Heritage Sports Art http://www.HeritageSportsArt.com . When you watch this NFL Films video, you will see 4 of the 13 actual painted uniforms — and you can actually own that original artwork!

    It seems like the Broncos only wear their alternate orange jerseys and they don’t really wear their blue jerseys

    They need to go back to the blue uniforms.

    Why do so many teams use orange as one of their primary colors? the Bears, the Bengals, the Browns, The Broncos, and the Dolphins all use orange as a primary color. What is it about the orange?

    I’m not a Broncos fan, but for me… Denver has the best uniform.

    Orange are their best ones imo

  14. UngarToTheMax on February 19, 2020 at 6:52 pm

    Why do the Broncos has blue as one of their colors if blue isn’t in their logo?

  15. UngarToTheMax on February 19, 2020 at 6:59 pm

    Why don’t the Broncos wear their traditional home blue jerseys? Most of their home games are in their orange jerseys

    The all blue monochromatic look was just wrong.  For any team

  17. Ray Aguilera on February 19, 2020 at 7:04 pm

  18. UngarToTheMax on February 19, 2020 at 7:09 pm

    Where did Denver get orange and blue from?

    the modern uniforms SUCK.  the blue helmet with the d and horse and orange jerseys were so much better.
