1983 USFL Logo HoodieRegular price $58.00
Conceived by businessman David Dixon, who saw a market for a professional football league that would play in the summer, the USFL was one of the grandest failures in the history of American professional sports. Although many agree the product on the field was solid, most of the franchises faced financial problems and instability from the beginning due to poor ticket sales and bloated player salaries (there was no salary cap). In addition, some franchises had difficulty securing leases in stadiums that were also used by NFL teams, forcing them to scramble to find alternate venues which in some cases turned out to be the team's downfall (i.e. the Boston Breakers playing at BU's soccer field).
After an embarrassing lawsuit led by Donald Trump (owner of the New Jerseys Generals) against the NFL, the USFL folded after only 3 seasons. What we're left with are some incredible 80's-style uniforms and team logos to look back on and, most importantly, one of the best league logos of all time.
