1975 Daryl Lamonica Signed Football Contracts WFL Southern California Sun Official Team DocumentsGo Back
Daryl Lamonica was the 25th player to jump from the NFL to the World Football League (WFL) on April 16, 1974 when he signed a multiyear contract to join the Southern California Sun in 1975. He went 9 for 19 for 90 yards and one touchdown in limited playing time in his only season in the WFL which folded in late-October of that year.
Presented is Daryl Lamonica’s original playing contract for that 1975 WFL Southern California Sun team. This is the original team contract and originates directly from a team source. The documents break down into different categories and are what the team kept on file.
Three of the documents in the contract are the blue cover “Club Copy” from April 10, 1974 with one stamped Received on July 9, 1974. One is unsigned, one is signed by the Vice President and General Manager (Fred L. Morrison) as well as Secretary (John C. Garett) and the last one that was stamped Received (the official one) was signed on record by Daryl Lamonica, Garett, Larry Hatfield (new President) and Gary Davidson (WFL President). Lamonica applied his name flawlessly in black pen (“10”) in the same trademark style he had throughout his career above the league President who also signed it.
Lastly included in the paperwork, is a yellow “League Copy” which is unsigned as well as a 9-page Addendum which is basically additions or clarifications to the contract which had to be signed and filed. Lamonica signed the addendum twice which was notarized.
Important to note, is this was Lamonica’s last professional football contract as the WFL closed shortly after (October). Overall, the contract papers are EX/MT with an expected filing and natural storage wear. It is truly a special privilege to offer one of the rare career documents from one of the most memorable Raiders quarterbacks who played in the unique football league.
