Luckman's pants

These are the pants worn in the 1940s by Chicago Bears Hall of Fame quarterback Sid Luckman. Regarded as the first great “T-formation” QB in NFL history, Luckman guided the Bears to a stunning 73-0 win over the Washington Redskins in the 1940 NFL Championship.

His performance in that game led a rush by NFL teams who converted to the T-formation during the decade.

Luckman threw 137 TDs in his career that spanned from 1939 to 1950. He led Chicago to an NFL title not only in 1940 but also in 1941, 1943, and 1946.
