Thanks to the folks at Ebay I now own a media guide for the 1977 edition of the Liberty Flames. As you can see, the similarities between this and the Chicago Fire of the old World Football League are obvious. I wonder if this the only example of a college team copy catting a team from the WFL?
I am missing information for Liberty for the years, 1974, 1976, and 1978 so I am not sure if the 1977 helmet was used for any of those season or not. Leave a comment if you have any info.
