Who doesn’t love USFL ephemera? I know I do, so this 1983 Los Angeles Express USFL ticket brochure scratches me right where I itch. It’s so full of hope and optimism, it almost makes me sad again that the league failed.
The front of the brochure has a really cool team graphic that is one of the first I’ve seen that really reinforces the train motif.
The cheapest Express season ticket package (9 games) sold for $67.50 in 1983. By comparison, a four-game package for UCLA football cost $50 that year. The cheapest package for the Raiders, who were newly arrived in L.A. that year, were $100 (10 games including the preseason).
