    1984 Steve Young Game Worn Los Angeles Express USFL Jersey - Used 4/20 vs. Blitz (hand warmers). After a highly successful college career at BYU, Steve Young signed a record 10-year, $40 million contract with the USFL's Los Angeles Express, and joined fellow league superstars such as Jim Kelly, Herschel Walker and Reggie White. That interesting part of Young's career ended after the USFL ceased operations in 1986, and he was picked up by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. After spending his first two years in the NFL with Tampa Bay, Young was deemed a bust, and as a result his team opted for Vinny Testaverde in the 1987 draft.

    The speedy southpaw out of BYU was then traded to the San Francisco 49ers in April of 1987 to serve as backup to legendary quarterback Joe Montana. Following an elbow injury to Montana in the 1990 NFC Championship Game, Young finally got his chance to start at quarterback in 1991. Despite a rocky start, where he battled through injuries and a quarterback competition with Steve Bono, Young eventually put together one of the most impressive careers in franchise history.

    The eventual Hall of Famer comfortably slipped into white mesh jersey, which we have style matched to his team's April 20, 1984 contest at Chicago. A terrific individual performance, Young tallied 302 yards through the air with one touchdown, while he added 120 rushing yards and one touchdown, including two two-point conversion runs. A jersey that has all the bells and whistles, it showcases built-in hand warmers in the front and a major vertical repair on the back. Overall, the finest Young USFL gamer we have had the pleasure of offering, if not the best jersey of the lefty to reach the auction block. LOA from Heritage Auctions.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
