Going for the Gold, Part One

After wearing navy jerseys in the team's first four seasons, Curly Lambeau unveiled a radical change for 1923, when the Packers switched to a gold jersey with nine thin navy stripes on each sleeve. It was worn with gold socks and dark gold pants, creating the team's first monochromatic uniform.

Here we see Curly proudly modeling his new look:

This is a shot of the uniforms in action:

This uniform would be worn for two seasons before being replaced with another gold jersey, this one featuring a navy blue shoulder yoke.
