A game worn / game used football collection from the CFL, USFL, WFL, XFL, WLAF, NCAA, NFL, and Arena football leagues.

Miami Hooters



It is not easy to find photos of the Miami Hooters in game action. I could only locate this one picture below, hence the waitress photos above. The Hooters were formed when the Sacramento Attack moved to Florida after just one season on the west coast as an expansion team. The team was named through a marketing deal with the popular restaurant chain that lasted three seasons. After the 1995 campaign, the sponsorship ended and the Hooters were renamed the Florida Bobcats. The Hooters had 5-7 records in both 1993 and 1994 before falling to a dismal 1-11 in their final season. 





Ralph Orta - Defensive Tackle (Maryland)



Ralph Orta went undrafted after playing defensive tackle during his college career at Maryland and did not attend a training camp in 1992. In 1993, he was signed in the offseason by the Washington Redskins after Orta sent the 28 NFL teams tape of his college highlights. Orta played in the preseason before he was released. In 1995, Orta played with the Miami Hooters of the Arena Football League where he wore this jersey. He was credited with four tackles, two quarterback sacks, one pass blocked and a fumble recovery. This particular jersey shows some evidence of game wear with some hit marks across the shoulder areas.
