Las Vegas Posse

Greg Battle - Linebacker (Arizona State)

Greg Battle began his pro career by signing with the Denver Broncos in 1986 but was released. He signed with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers late in the 1987 season. He would play seven seasons in Winnipeg in his first stint with the Bombers and was a dominant force. Battle was the runner up for the Schenley Most Outstanding Defensive Player Award in 1989 and won the award in 1990 and 1991. He left Winnipeg in 1994 as a free agent to sign with the expansion Las Vegas Posse. The Posse traded him to the Ottawa Rough Riders for future considerations late in the season. Battle again moved south of the border in 1995 as a free agent, inking a deal with the expansion Memphis Mad Dogs. When the American CFL teams ceased operations, Battle was picked in the 2nd round of the US Dispersal Draft by the Saskatchewan Roughriders. The green Riders released Battle after the 1996 campaign and he returned to Winnipeg for two final seasons in 1997 and 1998. Among his notable accomplishments, Battle set a record in the 1993 Grey Cup for most defensive tackles in the championship game with 14. Over his 12-year CFL career, Battle collected 26 sacks, 31 interceptions, and 26 fumble recoveries. He was inducted to the Canadian Football Hall of Fame in 2007.

Battle wore this Starter size 46 long jersey for road games with the Posse. The numbers, name and logos have all been screened on. It has spandex side panels and cuffed sleeves for a tighter fit. There is some cracking and flaking to the back number 3 in a couple of areas along with some light staining around the front number 3. The jersey shows moderate game wear with plenty of impact marks and paint transfers. 

Judd Garrett - Running Back (Princeton)

Judd Garrett followed a decorated college career at Princeton, where he set single season and career records for carries, yards and touchdowns, by being drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the 12th round (201st overall) of the 1991 NFL Draft. He was cut at the end of camp and inked a deal with the Dallas Cowboys a little over a week later but was injured shortly after arriving and was waived injured. He spent the next two seasons with the London Monarchs of the WLAF. In 1991, he registered a league-high 71 receptions in helping the Monarchs to the first ever World Bowl Championship and grabbed 13 passes in the title game. He signed with the Buffalo Bills and attended training camp in 1991 but was released. In 1992, he hauled in 55 passes in his second year with the Monarchs. After that season, he signed with the Seattle Seahawks but was cut prior to the season. Garrett signed with the Dallas Cowboys in 1993 and spent time on the team's practice squad. In 1994, Garrett carried the ball 50 times for 232 yards and 3 majors with the CFL's Las Vegas Posse. He signed with the Carolina Panthers and went to camp with them in 1995 but did not make the squad. He signed with the CFL's San Antonio Texans for the remainder of the season. Garrett has held several coaching jobs in the NFL since his playing days ended and has worked for many years as the Director of Pro Scouting for the Dallas Cowboys.

Garrett wore this Starter jersey for home games at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas while with the Posse in 1994. It features some hit marks and cuts in both elastic sleeve cuffs for a looser fit on the arms. Garrett's name has been screen printed on a black tape-like covering over the original nameplate. I have never seen anything quite like it but you see some strange things on equipment from teams operating on a shoestring budget. There is no doubt the jersey is authentic. I could find no other Posse player who wore #33 in their lone season so my best guess is that this jersey was recycled for Garrett and used by another player who did not make the squad in preseason. I sold this jersey to Garrett's wife in 2017. 

Here is Judd Garrett's Starter road jersey that he wore with the Posse in 1994. It shows solid game wear with several impact marks scattered across the jersey, mainly on the shoulders. There is also one team repair present.

Brent Huff - Defensive Back (Oregon State)

Brent Huff earned All Pac-10 honors in each of his three seasons at Oregon State University. Huff wore this Starter size 42 long jersey in the preseason for the expansion Las Vegas Posse in 1994 and spent some time on the Developmental Roster for the team. Huff later had a try out with the Toronto Argonauts. Since his playing days concluded, Huff worked for several years as a high school football head coach in California including at St. Genevieve in Panorama City.

James Bullock - Defensive Back (Arizona)

James Bullock played in 10 games for the Las Vegas Posse in 1994 and totalled 13 tackles, 9 on defence and 4 on special teams. He did score two touchdowns in his limited playing time on fumble recoveries. When the team folded, Bullock was selected by the Baltimore Stallions in the 2nd round (25th overall) of the Posse dispersal draft but never suited up for them in a regular season game.

Alfie Burch - Defensive Back (Michigan)

Alfie Burch signed as a free agent with the Dallas Cowboys in 1994 but was released at the end of training camp. He signed in the CFL with the expansion Las Vegas Posse in mid-season shortly after. Burch wore this jersey for road games with the Posse. Overall, he appeared in 6 games for the team and was credited with 9 tackles. After the demise of the Posse, Burch was selected by the Ottawa Rough Riders in the 3rd round (31st overall) of the Posse dispersal draft but never appeared in a regular season game for the Riders.

Alfie Burch wore these Ripon size 28 "Desert Sand" coloured pants during his time with the Posse as denoted by the "24" written in black marker on the inner waist. The pants completed a very sharp-looking uniform for the club. It has the original belt and a Posse logo patch sewn on the right hip. There are faint green stains on both knees of the pants, which appears to have come from contact with artificial turf as opposed to natural grass.

Jeff Cummins - Defensive Line (Oregon)

Jeff Cummins was a first team All-American at El Camino junior college prior to transferring to the University of Oregon. He began his pro career with the Las Vegas Posse of the CFL in 1994, notching a sack in 9 games. After the Posse folded, Cummins spent single seasons with the Toronto Argonauts in 1995 and the Ottawa Rough Riders for their final year of existence in 1996. He did not play in 1997 and Cummins rounded out his CFL career with three seasons and a Grey Cup with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Over his six years in the CFL, Cummins amassed 34 sacks in 94 games. In the spring of 2001, he saw action in two games for the XFL Champion Los Angeles Xtreme. Cummins then plied his trade in the Arena league, playing 2001 for the Toronto Phantoms where he was credited with 3.5 sacks in 7 games. He finished his career playing in 2002 for the Arizona Rattlers and a final season with the Georgia Force in 2003. Cummins has been head coach of the Acadia Axeman university program since 2004.

This Starter jersey size 48 long was worn by Cummins in 1994. The tagging is correct and Cummins verified that this was his jersey to the owner personally while drinking beer at a Grey Cup event a few days before the big game. It has the old style CFL neck logo with the numbers and name screen printed. The screened on areas are cracking and fading moderately. The nameplate stitching has started to come loose. The jersey exhibits plenty of game wear including rips on the shoulders and many black contact marks consistent for a lineman of Cummins' stature. It was obtained from eBay in 1999.

Phillips - Unknown Player

This Las Vegas Posse Starter size 48 jersey is a bit of a mystery as there is no player listed in the CFL Facts and Figures books under the name Phillips that played for the Posse. It shows no discernible wear on it and appears unworn. The jersey has the old style CFL neck logo and the numbers and name are screen printed on, with the nameplate sewn. The name is in a different font from the other Posse jerseys on the site and the nameplate is ½” taller than the one affixed to the Cummins jersey. It may have been added at a later time but there is no doubt this is a team-issued jersey. It was obtained from Grey Flannel Auctions in 2011.
