The Color of the Aggies and Rams - 1949 to 1960
Prior to the 1970s, it was rare to find any color photos in a Silver Spruce Yearbook. Usually only one or two could be found in the front of the
book, but by the mid-1950s an occasional color football photo could be found. This special feature are photos from the Silver Spruce along with
some from the 1949 Raisin Bowl film.
Still shots from the 1949 Raisin Bowl film show the color of the uniforms with white jerseys. The photo at right has four CSU hall of famers.
