When did receivers start wearing gloves in the NFL?

If you want a more complete answer, most wide receivers did not wear gloves from the start of football through the 70s and into the 80s. It was a relative rarity until the mid-80s, and it was a big deal that every member of the Redskins "Posse" wore them in the mid-late 80s. Even then, the gloves were nothing like the heavily tackified and sticky gloves that players today wore. Basically, the trend started in the late 80s, but they have become more and more of a tool used for making acrobatic, one-handed catches since the 90s and early 2000s. A fair number of players have admitted to it significantly aiding them in catching the ball today.
