I need some help. I just realized that I do not have a copy of the game program from the Rogues very first game on April 1, 1978 against the Rowdies at Tampa Stadium. Does anyone have a good quality scan of the cover or better yet, a spare copy they would be willing to sell? Please let me know if you can help by e-mail at gorogues@gmail.com.
Thanks!

EARLY ROGUES JERSEY, 1978


I believe this is one of the earlier Rogues jerseys that was later used by the reserve team. In the publicity head shots of the players they are wearing Admiral jerseys like this one. It is the correct style for Admiral jerseys of the late 1970's and has the the sewn-on Admiral logo which was used on the professional versions of uniforms. If anyone has more information, please let me know.
