You already know we love Throwback Jerseys, so when we get wind of a brand new uni getting set for a debut on the field, it’s big news. The Buffalo Bills are the latest NFL team to dust off an old design for the 2012 season, thanks to new on-field NFL partner Nike. The details, from the Swoosh:
This weekend the Buffalo Bills will wear a unique Nike Football throwback uniform combination modeled after the uniforms that the club wore during their 1964-1965 AFL Championship seasons. The modern interpretation of this historic design was originally showcased during the 50th Anniversary of the AFL back in 2009 and this weekend will be showcased on a Nike NFL Elite 51 chassis. As one of the eight original AFL teams, all elements of the Bills throwback uniform — jersey, pant, helmet, sock — differ from the team’s regular season look. In addition to a modernization of the stripe pattern, the helmets feature the Red Standing Buffalo logo that the club used as its primary mark from 1962 through 1973.
