Card: Topps 1990
Acquired: In Person 1991, Dallas Cowboys Training Camp
I remember at the same time I got Daryl Johnston in the autograph alleyway at St. Edwards, I was able to corral Vince for his as well almost at the same time. I think it was my second or third day there at the camp back in 1991. I can still remember the sound of their cleats as they walked up the street to the playing field.
A free agent signee from the University of Washington in 1984, Vince Albritton was a ferocious hitting strong safety who spent the majority of his career playing on special teams during his 8 year career. He’d even make the cover of the “Dallas Cowboys Weekly” where he was referred to as “The Lethal Weapon”. During the Dallas Cowboy’s darkest hour in 1989 Vince stepped to the plate starting all 16 games for the team and notched 111 tackles, but quickly by 1990 his season was limited to 8 games due to injury. By 1991, he only suited up for 6 games and then was out of football by the end of the season.
Today Vince is a licensed plumber and recently attended the demolition of Texas Stadium, sharing his memories with public about the stadium.
