    How did you figure out the colors of some of these teams, like Muncie and Tonawanda, that have practically zero information out there? Anyhow, your site is very helpful!

      I was able to find color descriptions from a source who owned some very old NFL guides, and then derive estimates for the actual shades based on what I believe to be era-appropriate colors.

      As with all of the older color estimates – always up for debate.
