Calvin Miller was an All-American at Mississippi Gulf Coast before moving to Oklahoma State for two years, including the 1974 Fiesta Bowl season. Miller started his pro career by playing in all 12 games in 1975 for the Birmingham Vulcans of the World Football League. The Vulcans were the top team in record (9-3) and attendance when the WFL folded in mid-season. Miller spent 1976 in the CFL, appearing in 8 contests with the Edmonton Eskimos and 2 for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. He resurfaced in 1979 with the New York Giants seeing action in 11 games at nose tackle and finished his pro career playing 2 games in 1980 with the Atlanta Falcons. After retiring, Miller coached for many years including at his alma mater, Oklahoma State.
Miller wore this fishnet jersey for home games at Legion Field in 1975 with the Birmingham Vulcans. The Vulcans used two sets of jerseys for the year, they wore a fishnet set in the first half of the year while the weather was hot and shifted to their regular mesh set for the October 12 contest against the Memphis Grizzlies. The neck tag remains but is very faded. The numbers and stripes are screened on while the name is sewn onto a nameplate. The jersey shows moderate game use with several impact marks on the shoulders.
