Shining through

This wire photo shows the Packers in a 31-14 loss to the Steelers in Pittsburgh on November 24, 1953:

PITTSBURGH: Jim Finks (7) Steeler quarterback goes over for first touchdown in first quarter of game with Packers here tonight 10/24. Blocked out on the play were Packers Howard Ruetz (75) and Clayton Tonnemaker (55).
The Packers are sporting their short-lived early 1950s ensemble of green pants, gold jerseys and metallic gold helmets. Love the shiny twill numbers. Head coach Gene Ronzani was fired at the end of this season, and as was so often the case, incoming skipper Lisle Blackbourn would bring his own uniform designs to the Packers for 1954.
