12s have known for some time that the Seattle Seahawks would be wearing throwback jerseys at least once in 2023. One of the games will be in Week 8 at Lumen Field when Seattle plays the Cleveland Browns. But until Wednesday, we didn't know what the throwback jerseys would look like other than they would be Kingdome-era uniforms.
Oh, we thought they would be nice. Linebacker Bobby Wagner called the jerseys "fire" when he first saw them in May, but he still wished they were black. Of course, that wouldn't have fit with the Seahawks' color scheme.
Safety Quandre Diggs, who must have someone who gives him secret intel in the Seattle front office because he seems to know about breaking news before the team itself announces whatever the news happens to be, tweeted a video of the shoes he will be wearing when the Seahawks wear their throwback jerseys.
The jerseys changed a small amount in the early years of the franchise - the numbers moved to the shoulders, the stripes changed - but then the jerseys completely changed in 2001. Seattle wore an all-blue home uniform until 2011 when the jerseys changed again. Of course, Seattle has had its greatest run of sustained success while wearing their current uniforms so maybe they don't want to change too much (if you happen to be a bit superstitious).
But now we know what the jerseys look like, and you can purchase them at Fanatics. I can honestly say they were worth the big unveil. They are classic 1990s jerseys with a blue top and gray pants. The old-school logo is back on the shoulders along with the green stripe under the logo. The numbers are white and the socks are blue. The helmet is silver with the original logo. In other words, they are fantastic.
