The Le'Nalors News of The Week - NY Giants unveil 'Century Red' 100th season commemorative uniform

New York revealed a "Century Red" throwback uniform, that will be worn for select home games in 2024. 

The "Century Red" uniform will be worn up to two games in 2024. The jersey is divided by a thick blue stripe underneath white numbers and tan pants paired with red and blue striped socks. The jersey dates back to 1933, when the Giants made the first NFL Championship Game, while the pants date back to 1925 when the Giants were purchased by Tim Mara for $500. 

New York will wear the winged helmet used from 1937 to 1947, including the Giants' 1938 championship season. The uniform will have the "100 seasons" commemorative patch. 

What makes the "Century Red" uniforms interesting is how they debuted a year after the Giants introduced a popular throwback jersey from the 1980s-1990s. The Giants wore the "Legacy Blue" uniform, worn from 1980-1999, twice in the 2022 and 2023 seasons. New York wore the white "Color Rush" throwbacks since the 2016 season, wearing the uniform at least once per season. 

New York changed its "Color Rush" uniform in 2023, thanks to the lifting of the "one-shell rule," wearing the throwback dark blue helmet (worn with the "Legacy Blue" jerseys) with the uniform.
