This was the only season Apex was the official supplier of the Lions' uniforms.
They are interesting for a number of reasons:
First: they had sewn-on numbers, for the first time since the Wilson
durene jerseys of the early 1970s.
Second: the white road jerseys had the players' names in Honolulu Blue
lettering, to match the numbers. (Prior to that, the players' names were in navy blue.)
Third: 1994 was the first year for "throwback" style uniforms. To
commemorate the League's 75th Anniversary, the Lions wore this 1934-1961 style in five home games.
Fourth: in 1995 Reebok became the official supplier of the Lions'
uniforms. However, the Lions also reused many of their 1994 Apex jerseys in 1995. On
those, the team removed the Apex sleeve logos and tail tags, replaced them with Reebok logos and tail tags, and
left the Apex "94" year tags.
The six Apex below used exclusively in 1994 (four throwback, two road) all have their original, correct 75th
Anniversary patches, with the hidden "HAY" letter code.
Apex supplied jerseys to the Giants (1992,
1993, 1994), Cowboys (1993, 1994) and Lions (1994) prior to going out of business.
