Stephen was really surprised to see that there are a few fans of his still out there, and shocked that I had so many of them. He knew my friend Nathan and while they were packing up stopped to sign them for me. Nathan couldn’t find any cards of Braggs, so I spotted him a few extras that I had floating around from over the years.
Stephen’s Fleer 1992 photo was probably the best looking of the bunch, although the design was quite boring. The framing of the Browns helmet with the outline of the NFL logo is unnecessary and the angled Browns helmet is an absolute no-no. Of the 3 the Topps 88 is probably more of a classic than the others, just because the design style (as boring as it was) matched the aesthetic of what was being created then.
Coach Braggs, as of 2017, was head coach now at Trinity Episcopal School in Central Texas. He also serves as the track and girls basketball coach. Stephen also runs the Stephen Braggs Foundation.
