A game worn / game used football collection from the CFL, USFL, WFL, XFL, WLAF, NCAA, NFL, and Arena football leagues.

Memphis Mad Dogs

Jarvis Perry - Running Back (Roman)

Jarvis Perry played college ball at NCAA Division III Rowan University where he earned a second team All-Conference selection in 1991 and first team All-Conference honors in 1992.  He only spent a brief time in the CFL in 1995 with the expansion Mempis Mad Dogs.  He logged 8 carries for 19 yards and caught 1 pass for 5 yards in 4 games for the Mad Dogs.  He also saw some action in the secondary adding 3 defensive tackles and another 4 tackles on special teams.  After his time with the Mad Dogs, Perry signed with the Dallas Cowboys in April 1997 and participated in their training camp that year but was released prior to the season.  After that, Perry played semi-pro ball with the West Deptford Broncos in the American Football Association.  

Chris Gardner - Kicker (Mississippi State)

Chris Gardner's stay in the CFL was a brief one, wearing each of these jerseys in just one regular season game (and presumably one more game each in the preseason).  He made the Mad Dogs roster out of training camp and suited up week 1 on the road against the Calgary Stampeders, where he made a 49-yard field goal.  The next week, Gardner would play his final CFL game in the Mad Dogs home debut at the Liberty Bowl.  Memphis lost 31-13 to the BC Lions where he would miss four field goal attempts and was replaced by former University of Memphis standout, Joe Allison.  Overall, Gardner made 4 out of 10 field goal attempts in his two games.  The Mad Dogs continued to struggle in the kicking game as they would move on from Allison (1 of 3) after one game and quickly discard Donald Igwebuike (3 of 7) before Nick Mystrom (37 of 47) solidified the position.  Gardner has coached for several seasons with the Northwest Rankin Cougars high school team in Mississippi.  The Mad Dog jerseys were notoriously long and as you can see, the bottoms have been cut off of both of these.
