The Detroit Lions and their colorful uniform history – a video

If you love the Detroit Lions and their colorful history, then you’re really going to like this terrific two-minute video by NFL Films which chronicles the uniform color history of the Lions franchise from its early years in the 1930's to the modern era and magnificent Ford Field. Narrated by Scott Graham, one of the great voices of NFL Films, this video features three uniform history experts:

1. Joe Horrigan, Vice President of Communications and Exhibits at the Pro Football Hall of Fame where he has worked for more than 35 years

2. Michael MacCambridge, author of “America’s Game: The Epic Story of How Pro Football Captured A Nation” and many other books as well as editor of the massive “ESPN College Football Encyclopedia”

3. Scott Sillcox, sports uniform historian, owner and founder of Maple Leaf Productions and Heritage Sports Art.

My name is Scott Sillcox and for 15+ years I owned Maple Leaf Productions. We were a licensee of the NFL, MLB, NHL and through a partner company, the NCAA, and we created and sold a number of products, the most famous of which were our horizontal posters. The Lions’ poster showed the evolution of the team uniform from the early days to the modern era – click here to see the poster or see the poster below. Our other products – all of which celebrated the history of team uniforms - included fridge magnets, clocks, playing cards and FanFrames.


If you are a huge Lions fan, you might be interested to know that the 16 pieces of original artwork used to create the Lions’ poster shown above – the actual hand-painted watercolor paintings – are available for sale at Heritage Sports Art. When you watch this NFL Films video, you will see 4 of the 16 actual painted uniforms – and you can actually own that original artwork – how cool is that!

Please note: Some of the 16 pieces of original Lions uniform artwork may have already been sold to other avid Lions fans, so you may want to act quickly if you would like to own what we lovingly, and honestly, call a “somewhat famous” piece of art. A lot of sports art is terrific, as is our art, but not many pieces of sports art have been reproduced thousands of times and can be found hanging in people’s homes and offices across North America – to me that’s what makes buying and owning this original art so cool.

Each piece of original artwork is beautifully framed in a tasteful and attractive way, and the engraved plate contained within the framed piece tells the story of that particular piece of original art and how it has been reproduced in thousands of posters and other products sold across North America. These framed pieces make a great gift – birthday gift, anniversary gift, retirement gift - and considering that you are buying original artwork that is also somewhat famous with a fun story behind it, they really are very reasonably priced.

Here is what a framed piece looks like.
