By now, everyone has seen the big reveal for the Cleveland Browns 75th-anniversary limited use uniforms.
While the jersey and helmet were the featured items, we see that the FirstEnergy Stadium Browns ProShop is fully stocked with T-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, and other 75th-anniversary memorabilia containing the logo and general look.

A quick review of Twitter shows fan reaction is overwhelmingly positive.
Surprisingly, there were not too many unhappy people sharing their thoughts because they hoped for an orange uniform.
In the end, the Browns went with tradition, and this look is reminiscent of the 1946 Browns.
