Game Worn Football Jersey 

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

Tampa Bay Bandits

The 1985 Tampa Bay Bandits

The Tampa Bay Bandits used both Speedline and Champion jerseys during their three-year history. One odd thing about the Bandits is that their lineman generally wore jerseys that had no logos on the sleeves unlike the other players on the team as seen in the photo below.

Tony Office - Linebacker (Illinois State)

Tony Office played one season in the USFL and wore this jersey for the Tampa Bay Bandits in 1985. Office registered one quarterback sack during the season. He also appeared in three games with two starts for the Detroit Lions in 1987, presumably as a replacement player during the NFL players strike although I have not been able to confirm this. This jersey features a couple of team repairs and has some flaking on the numbers, which is common among Bandits jerseys. Office is seen in the photo observing the coin flip prior to the Bandits 1985 game versus the Express at the LA Coliseum.
