Default Show Us Your Favorite AFL Items

In my opinion, the AFL doesn't get enough respect. There's not enough former AFL'ers in the HOF and AFL records are sometimes discredited.

Show any and all AFL items (cards, photos, memorabilia, etc.) you love in this thread as an ode to THE American Football League!

Great idea for a thread, Jeff! When it comes to football, the AFL is my favorite. I just picked this up. I hope it shows up this weekend. It is a 1965 Chargers AFL West champs team ball with 34 signatures.

I like this item from the first AFL - the Grange league in 1926. It's a reminder of how the various AFLs really struggled for a share of the market against the NFL for half a century. Here are the two best teams of the first AFL sharing a double bill with a high-school game on Thanksgiving in New York City

This is in my collection. It is Sid Gillman's team-signed game ball from the 1963 AFL Championship Game.

Wow, wow, wow! I wondered if any 63 championship balls were out there. Someday one of my main goals is to have one, along with other such items from that seaaon. I really like your display case items as well, particularly the We Love Lance Alworth sticker and the program. Just terrific stuff, Todd!

Here is a proof ticket from the 1963 AFL championship game, a super-rare candy try produced by Coca-Cola, showing the '63 team, and Sid Gillman's 63 championship tie clip and bracelet.

Have you ever been to the Vatican library - they have twenty items in one display case that would be a stand alone center piece of any other library in the world - and then they have 10 more cases just like that. Todd is the Vatican of the AFL!
