    1984 Steve Young Game Worn Los Angeles Express USFL Jersey. 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.

    Presented here is an extremely rare early career Young gamer from his time spent in the defunct USFL with the LA Express. Exhibiting light wear, the jersey style perfectly matches to the game photo specs, and it has the proper "Russell [size] 46" tag in the tail. In addition, screened on identifiers are displayed on the front, back and sleeves. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
