NFL Saints: All Black Uniform by yurintroubl NFL Saints: All Black Uniform by yurintroubl
The New Orleans Saints have recently joined a number of NFL teams who feature a Black/Black uniform... They have never worn helmets with a color scheme different than their original - Gold Helmet featuring a black fleur-de-lis (outlined in white/black) and a white center stripe outlined in black.

I wanted to see how the Black/Black uniforms would look with a Black helmet...

Too bad the NFL doesn't allow alternate helmets to be worn for regular season games (except approved "throwback" designs).





Regarding credits:

I did not take this picture myself, only manipulate the colors. The player in the image is Pierre Thomas. The pre-photoshop image itself can be found on numerous websites - including NFL.com - [link]

The original image was photographed by Chris Graythen.

@yurintroubl...that's an excellent Photoshop creation! YEARS AGO, I always wondered what my Saints uniforms would look like w/ black helmets/gold fleur-de-lis, and wondered why we never did attempt to even try it. Well, I did my research...and...during the 1969 PRESEASON, the Saints wore a helmet just like the one you have here but w/ grey face masks. But, the owner of the team @ that time didn't consult w/ the NFL association, so the helmets were "banned". I mean, we could try it again during preseason during present day 'n' see how fans like it now, ya know!? Here's a link if anyone would care to see the original "throwback" BLACK Saints helmet...

Hey there... Just wanted to let you know - Yes, I am aware of the pre-season black helmets. In retrospect - I should have said

"They have never worn helmets with a color scheme different than their original for a regular-season game."

FWIW - I actually samples from an original to match the colors for the one on Pierre. I decided, however, to keep the current black face mask rather than the white/light gray from the '69 version.

Thanks for taking the time to relay the info. I'm already looking forward to next season!

No problem man! I like it though, I been saying for years that they should wear the black helmet, with the actual 1969 throwback uniform, but the edit that you did looks good man. I would not mind seeing them play in that at all man looks legit.

"They have never worn helmets with a color scheme different than their original"

I took the above statement from your description, and just wanted to point out that you are mistaken to a point.

Yes, the saints have never wore a different helmet other than the gold helmet and the fleur de lis on the helmet has changed over the years but that is besides the point.

What i wanted to say is that in the 1969 the saint in fact did wear a black helmet. It was in a pre season game only.

Just thought you would like to know this, if you did not already.
