Washington Redskins Reveal New Alternate Uniform

The Redskins revealed a new alternate today. They are centered around the Sammy Baugh era, with the helmet finish designed to replicate the leather helmets worn in the past. Some lower-quality photos from the reveal event:

And the Nike promotional photos, as well (click for high resolution):

Looks like the lighting at the reveal is making these look very different from the Nike photoshops (pretty standard). We’ll have to wait a little longer to see what they look like on the field instead of screen captures, photoshops, and cell phone photos.

Update: Thanks to HGI, we’ve got some sweet close up pictures of the helmet:

Solid work, as always, HGI. Beautiful helmet. Makes me wonder if the Packers will adopt something like this for their throwbacks…
