The 1929 Green Bay Packers season was their ninth season in the National Football League. The club posted an undefeated 12–0–1 record under player/coach Curly Lambeau, earning them a first-place finish and the Packers' first National Football League Championship. Before the start of the season, the Packers signed three future Hall of Famers, Johnny "Blood" McNally, Cal Hubbard, and Mike Michalske, who along with Lambeau led the Packers to the top of the league. Green Bay's current throwback uniform is based off the ones worn in 1929 in respect of the season that the Packers won their first championship.
