| We've been (well, me at least) a little lazy here at the Gridiron Uniform Database
blog, and we've got many updates that have been piling up on us, so
we'll jump right in and start with one we started discussing last week.|

|1999 Eagles new|
|1999 Eagles Old|
|Jan. 19, 2003 - NFC Championship|
|As late as November 2000, the Eagles were exclusively using |
the 'slanted' wordmark on clothing and jerseys, but as early
as Sept. '99, they were using the "crowned" wordmark logo
in the end zone at Veterans Stadium
This isn't the only discrepancy that this research has come across -- a while back someone in the forum asked about the Eagles 1969-73 white helmet and whether or not it had a black outline around the green eagle wing. After much discussion, our Tim Brulia stated that:
"I've been hearing about this one for years. I can say with 100% certainty that there was NO black outline on the wings."But while looking around the Creamer site, I saw the following:
Could it be possible that Tim's statement about there absolutely being no black outline is accurate with regards to the 1969-72 helmet, yet the 1973 helmet did, in fact, have the black outline? What say you all? Is the Creamer site right and the 1973 helmet different, or do we stand by Tim's statement that there was never any black outline at all?
