Throwback AFL Uniforms

As a part of the 50 year AFL anniversary, 8 teams including the Raiders will be busting out throwback uniforms during selected games in the 2009 season.

From NBCBayAreaSports:

“Interestingly, the throwback Raider uniforms are not the original uniforms they wore in 1960, the season we're celebrating the anniversary of here. From 1960-1962, the Raiders wore gold and black. But Al Davis switched the team colors to silver and black when he took over as coach and general manager in 1963.”

Here are the 4 games that the Raiders will be wearing their 1963 uniforms and helmets:

Monday, September 14: Chargers at Raiders
Sunday, October 25: Jets/Titans at Raiders
Sunday, November 15: Chiefs/Dallas Texans at Raiders
Thursday, November 26: Raiders at Cowboys (Thanksgiving Day game)
