This item is by far the pinnacle of my AFL memorabilia.

When the AFL turned 5 years old, AFL founder Lamar Hunt created a composite piece to give to each of the eight AFL owners. The piece includes a photo of each of the eight AFL teams. As the owners had always called themselves the "Foolish Club" for taking on the NFL, that is the inscription he put on the piece. I have the one that was originally given to Jets majority owner Sonny Werblin. I know the one Hunt had made for himself hangs in the Kansas City Hall of Fame but have not been able to track down the location of the other six.



Like all things AFL, this item was originally in Todd Tobias's collection.

Great stuff. Aside from a program from the 1968 season and some cards My Jets AFL collection is a tad light, lol. I will live vicariously through the fantastic collections I see here.

That certainly is a beauty, Jeff. I am glad that you are enjoying it. I especially like the Patriots photo, which shows Jess Richardson, the last professional player to not wear a face mask.

Huh. Didn't know that, Todd. That's a great piece of AFL trivia.
