My boss was a season ticket holder and we went to the Silverdome for a Chicago Whales Baseball shirt (one player at each table) where they were presented with their Championship rings. Jim Branstetter and his wife Robbie Timmons were there and spoke. I have Bobby Hebert, Anthony Carter, and John Corker’s jerseys from the locker room. A friend of mine was a defensive end, Ronnie Pagett. You serious I use to love the USFL some great players played in that league Before they went to the NFL I loved that league. Sorry about that. You are absolutely right. For some reason, I couldn’t get Heisman Trophy out of my head.

Best Chicago Whales Baseball shirt
Jeff Grant Nice! I used to have that Chicago Whales Baseball shirt. We had season tickets when I was a kid. Loved the USFL! Nothing like having championship football in the Silverdome. Want to read a great book about USFL history, check out Jeff Pearlman’s “Football for a Buck.” Came out a few years ago. Went to the first NJ Generals home game and the last Championship Game/last USFL game ever at the Meadowlands. Sat 50 yard line 2nd level, in the luxury box behind us were Joe D and Magic. I saw a couple of Oakland Invader games. One was an MNF game vs the Gamblers and Jim Kelly. I sat on the upper deck and it seemed like there were 20 people in the entire section. Great fun. Shame that Trump ruined that league by insisting they play in the fall. There’s an excellent book about the league called Football for a Buck you should read.
