I agree with you and VRIEL1. The color is more on the bright side of yellow, not the darker/dirtier shade. And if nobody is talking about it, then it will just stay the same. I got a 1970s banner that is clearly GOLD, not yellow.
I reconsidered. The gold helmets don't look too bad. It will be a good change. I still like the spears helmet, but that was already used as a throwback. Check out the helmet the Eagles will be wearing Sept 23rd. I kinda like that helmet as a change in pace. Thanks for posting the site. It was kinda neat checking out the past NFL helmets.
