New Orleans Saints uniform and uniform color history

If you love the New Orleans Saints 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 Saints franchise from its founding as the then 16th franchise in the NFL in 1967 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 Saints fan, you might be interested to know that the 13 pieces of original artwork used to create the Saints’ famous uniform evolution poster — the actual hand-painted watercolor paintings — are available for sale at Heritage Sports Art . 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!
