The Waterloo Black Hawks are one of the top teams in the USHL and this past weekend, they busted out some elite throwback jerseys.

Inspired by the Iowa city's first-ever hockey team, the creation seen above paid tribute to the Waterloo Becker-Chapman American Legion Post team, which came together in 1927 and played against teams from Chicago, Kansas City and Winnipeg, among others. Since the original Legion team helped raise money for veterans, the Black Hawks wore their throwbacks on Veteran's Day and they will be auctioned off after Waterloo's Thanksgiving Day game against Cedar Rapids. Profits from the auction will go to Americans for Independent Living, an organization that builds or modifies houses for injured veterans in the area.

Waterloo's squad this year includes Chicago Blackhawks pick Jake Ryczek and likely 2017 first-rounder Shane Bowers.
