Kemp was a professional quarterback for 13 years. He played briefly in the National Football League (NFL) and the Canadian Football League (CFL), but became a star in the American Football League (AFL). He served as captain of both the San Diego Chargers and Buffalo Bills and earned the AFL Most Valuable Player award in 1965 after leading the Bills to a second consecutive Championship. Kemp played in the AFL for all 10 years of its existence, appeared in seven All-Star games, played in its Championship game five times, and set many of the league's career passing records. He then went on to a very successful career in politics. This is an old Riddell suspension Houston Oilers helmet that was fitted and worn by Jack Kemp in the last AFL All-Star Game in the Houston Astrodome. This Oilers helmet was stripped by the Houston & All-Star equipment manager and then he added the AFL logos for the game. The face mask has since been removed. Size 7-1/2 inside the helmet. Player number “15” stickers are on the back of the helmet. The player number “15” is written on the inside and outside of the helmet and carved twice into the back of the helmet. The helmet shows game-use and with the exception of the modifications made for the All-Star Game appears to have no alterations of any kind. The helmet was originally sourced from the family of the equipment manager.
