Ticket From Herschel's Pro Football Single Season Rushing Record Game


Above is a nice piece of memorabilia, which I am pleased to add to the Herschel Hoard.  This is a full ticket, from the June 10th, 1985 New Jersey Generals vs Jacksonville Bulls USFL game.  In this game, Herschel Walker set a new single season, professional football rushing record, when he surpassed Eric Dickerson's previous mark of 2,105 yards.

Walker rushed for 162 yards on 28 carries and two touchdowns.  At the completion of the game, which was the General's 16th, Herschel season total was 2,129.  Dickerson's NFL mark also came in 16 games.  Herschel's final total yardage for the 1985 season was 2,411 yards.
