Before the Chargers Girls, 1961

Before the Charger Girls, the team and fans had Chargettes. Here they are in 1961. According to a posting on glorifythepast.com, in 1970, "A lot of Bolts were caught up in an NFL drug scandal, and the original Charger Girls, the Chargettes, were disbanded after several of them appeared in a Playboy spread." The man in the photo is quarterback Jack Kemp, who went on to become the Republicans' 1996 vice presidential candidate.
