Turn Back The Clock – 1924

The Giants have been time traveling this year. We’ve gone from 2012, to the 1962 team reunion, to turning back the century to 1912, to the 2002 team reunion, to our final time-stop – 1924. Although the game didn’t go the Giants way, the team still looked great in the red, white & blue (& gray) of the New York Giants road uniform.  This jersey,  and the jersey and hat from our 1912 Turn Back The Clock game, can be purchased on the Giants web site.

Happy 4th of July!
