Lance Alworth’s Archive – 1964 AFL All-Star Jersey

Lance AlworthLiving in San Diego and researching the American Football League, I have been fortunate to develop a relationship with Chargers hall of fame wide receiver, Lance Alworth.  Lance played an integral role in my first book, Charging Through the AFL, and in the years since it was published, we have worked together on several occasions.  One ongoing project that I have been able to help him out with is the management of the memorabilia that he accumulated during his years of involvement with professional football.  Despite his many successes and accolades, Lance does not care to have a display room to show off his trophies and memorabilia.  Instead, he asked me to catalog and archive it all, to ensure that it was all kept neat and in one place.  As a fan/researcher/memorabilia collector, this was one of the most enjoyable projects that I have been involved with.  There are jerseys, trophies, photos, game balls, cleats and all manner of photographs and publications in Lance’s football “accumulation.” read more
