Game Worn Football Jersey 

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

Ottawa Renegades

Dan Crowley - Quarterback (Towson State)

Dan Crowley was the Towson State Tigers' MVP in 1994. He turned pro the following year by signing as a free agent with the Baltimore Stallions, where he was a member of the only American team to win the Grey Cup. Crowley moved with the team to Montreal in 1996 and saw very limited action at both stops. He spent 1998 and 1999 in the Italian Football Federation where he led the Bergamo Lions to back-to-back titles while earning the championship game MVP honors both years. He returned to the CFL later in 1999 as the third-string quarterback with the Edmonton Eskimos. Crowley moved into a starting role with the expansion Ottawa Renegades in 2002 and completed 223 of 454 passes with 16 touchdowns and 19 interceptions that season. He wore this jersey before he was released three games into the 2003 season after the team acquired quarterback Darnell Kennedy from the Calgary Stampeders. In his 7 CFL seasons, Crowley completed 402 of 816 passes for 4,933 yards with 29 touchdowns and 40 interceptions.

Yo Murphy - Wide Receiver (Idaho)

Llewellyn (Yo) Murphy began a well-travelled career by signing with the BC Lions in 1993. He spent two years there, catching 46 passes and winning a Grey Cup in 1994. Murphy then spent three of the next four seasons in the World League with the Scottish Claymores (1996-97, 99). In that time, he caught 113 passes for 1,609 yards and was the World Bowl MVP in 1996 with a 3 touchdown performance. In 1999, Murphy made the Tampa Bay Buccaneers roster and caught 4 passes in 7 games before being released. He signed with the Minnesota Vikings and played 1 game for them later that year. Murphy resurfaced in the XFL with the Las Vegas Outlaws in 2001 where he made 27 receptions for 273 yards. He returned to the NFL later that year and saw action with the St. Louis Rams in 2001 and 2002. In the NFL, Murphy played in 35 games and had 9 catches for 51 yards. Yo returned to the CFL in 2003 after a 9-year absence with the Ottawa Renegades where he remained until the end of 2005. He had his best season with Ottawa in 2004 with 61 catches for 1,090 yards and 6 scores. He spent two seasons with the Saskatchewan Roughriders to close out his career after the 2007 campaign. His CFL totals included 213 receptions for 3,175 yards and 16 touchdowns in 74 games.

This size 44 Puma jersey was worn by Murphy in 2003. It has the correct 2002 tagging on it, including the last year of this style of CFL neck logo with the newer style logo sewn overtop of it. Any 2002 recycled jerseys used in the 2003 regular season have the new CFL logo sewn overtop the old one. The jersey also has the Molson Canadian Light sponsors patch on the left breast. Numbers are sewn on as is the name to the nameplate. The jersey shows moderate game wear consistent with the number of games Murphy played in 2003. It was obtained from Brad at Fairmore Sports in the fall of 2004.

This size 44 Reebok jersey was worn by Murphy in 2004. It has all the correct tagging including the CFL neck logo. The Molson Canadian Light sponsor patch on the left breast was removed and there are remnants of stitching and glue where it once was. I have seen the away jerseys with the sponsor patch missing, but home ones with them still on. I suspect there was some disagreement near the end of the year and the patches were removed for the final game(s). On the right chest is the Grey Cup 2004 Ottawa patch, which was worn the entire year. Numbers are sewn on as is the name to the nameplate. It shows moderate game wear with a large hole on the back of the left sleeve. This jersey was obtained from Classic Auctions in 2012.

Mike Maurer - Fullback (Regina)

Mike Maurer broke into professional football with Saskatchewan after being a territorial exemption pick by the Roughriders in the 1997 CFL Draft. He made his pro debut in 1998 and spent his first two seasons in Regina before moving to the BC Lions for two years. In 2002, Maurer was selected in the expansion draft by the Ottawa Renegades and spent three seasons in the nation's capital. He wore this jersey in 2004 for road games with the Renegades as evidenced by the Grey Cup patch that was played in the city that year. In 2005, Maurer joined the Edmonton Eskimos for two campaigns. In Edmonton, he won the Dick Suderman Trophy as the Most Valuable Canadian in the Eskimos 38-35 victory over Montreal in the 2005 Grey Cup. Maurer retired in May 2008 but the lure of the gridiron pulled him back to play another four games in 2008 and two more games in 2009 for the Eskimos. In his career, Maurer rushed the ball 34 times for 115 yards and a touchdown and added 64 catches for 643 yards receiving and three majors in 167 regular season games.

Aubrey Cummings - Wide Receiver (Acadia)

Aubrey Cummings entered the pro ranks as a 4th round pick (24th overall) of the Calgary Stampeders in the 1998 CFL Draft. He earned a roster spot on an absolutely loaded Calgary receiving unit that included Allen Pitts, Vince Danielson, Terry Vaughn and Travis Moore. He had his best year statistically in 2000 when he caught 53 passes for 578 yards. After four seasons with the Stamps, Cummings signed with the expansion Ottawa Renegades in 2002 and he would play the final three seasons of his career there. Over his seven years in the CFL, Cummings made 176 receptions for 2,203 yards and 7 touchdowns in 106 regular season games.

This size 42 Reebok jersey with all the correct tagging was worn by Cummings in 2004. Only stitching and glue remnants remain where it once had the Molson Canadian Light sponsors patch on the left breast. I have seen away jerseys with the sponsor patch missing but home jerseys with them still on. I suspect there was some disagreement near the end of the year and the patches were removed for the final away game(s), the last of which occurred in Montreal. There is no Grey Cup 2004 Ottawa patch on the right breast and no evidence apparent that one was ever there. The numbers are sewn on as is the name to the nameplate. It shows no game wear but has been custom shortened. Cummings only played 3 games in 2004 so it’s possible this jersey was never worn in a game, explaining the absence of the Grey Cup Patch. This jersey was obtained from Classic Auctions in 2014.

Sean Bennett - Running Back (Northwestern)

Sean Bennett signed with the Ottawa Renegades as a free agent in March of 2004. He played three games for the team that season, catching 4 passes for 74 yards and a touchdown. In 2005, Bennett suited up in five games for the Renegades. He carried the ball once for 12 yards (the only carry of his career) and added 4 receptions for 76 yards. When the Renegades folded after the 2005 season, Bennett was selected by the Toronto Argonauts in the dispersal draft of players under contract to Ottawa. With Toronto, Bennett dressed for three games in 2006. He caught 2 balls for 49 yards in what would be his final season in the Canadian Football League. As far as I can tell, the Renegades only wore their alternate red jerseys on two occasions, a 2005 Canada Day 39-36 overtime win over the Montreal Alouettes at Frank Clair Stadium and in the franchise's final game, a 27-17 victory over the Toronto Argonauts on November 5, 2005.
