From The Archives – Charger Girl Shelby C.

In the early 90’s, I was a Los Angeles Raiders season ticket holder and when Al Davis packed his bags and went back north to Oakland, I decided to check out a few San Diego Charger games to get my fill of NFL football.  In this installment of From the Archives, I present one of my earliest photographs of the Charger Girls, taken with my old Canon film camera.

The environment at old Jack Murphy Stadium was much more family friendly than the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and the excitement and pagentry of the NFL was so compelling that I soon became a San Diego Charger season ticket holder.  Of course, the Charger Girls were also one of the reasons for becoming a Charger fan, as you can tell from this photograph of Shelby C. from the mid 90’s.

Check out how high the waist is on this version of the venerable Charger Girl skirt!  It’s almost Victorian by modern day standards, but still, perhaps, my favorite version of the uniform.

  1. My 2007 mini-dvd handy-cam video is challenged by your focus excellence of the old Cannon. (Yes, I have personal vid of alumni
    Line-captain Ashley from 2004-07). Great subject matter either way. What does the wife say about In and Out Burger being open that late that so far away from Qualcomm?

  2. I LOVE the uniforms from that era!! Almost as much as the uniforms from the 80’s!! Thanks for sharing this pic from the archives and please share more! Did you catch this rare video that surfaced a few months back? It’s the Rhein Fire Pyromaniacs from the same era – 1997.

  3. Sara, that’s a cool video. Thanks for posting. Speaking of the NFL Europe, I was always kind of partial to the London Monarch cheerleaders, myself.

    More vintage Charger Girl, Raiderette and other cheerleading squads to come, so keep watching.

  4. I love this shot of Shelby from the Charger Girl archives. I also love the old uniforms,high wasted and all. As the Charger Girl who stood in line right next her back in 95′ it brings back great memories. (I’ll be sure to contact her on Facebook in case she hasn’t seen this yet.)Thanks for making me smile today!

  5. I like this great shot of a cheerleader Shelby a Charger Girl in the 1990’s. The outfit was colourful and with tremendous taste.
