As the Chargers have returned to Los Angeles and are doing what they can to drum up a following among Angelinos, I thought it would be interesting to post the notes of a season ticket brochure that the team distributed during their inaugural season of 1960.  Just $4 for a single game ticket, and $40 for a season pass in their first season, and yet the team averaged just 15,000 fans per game in 1960.  That is 15,000 fans, not necessarily 15,000 paid fans.

Things have changed in 58 years.  According to a Chargers news release of February 14, 2017, season ticket packages range from $700-$3,750 in the StubHub Center, which they deem to be the NFL’s most intimate venue.  It has yet to be seen whether they will attract the fans necessary to fill the 27,000 seats at their new home stadium.

    Those powder blue uniforms,Balboa Stadium, Sid Gillman leading them onto the field, was the best. The people of San Diego deserved a a better fate.
