I have to get creative on some of these Ultimate cards since they do not have the player name on them. I realized that since the player’s numbers were at my fingertips, I could probably locate the actual player on the card. With a 2 on the right pad and a 9 on the left- I was able to trace down 29 as Bill Ragans. From there it was a simple internet search to locate the best fit for the name.
Bill responded in a bit under 2 years. He apologized for the wait as this one had gotten lost on his desk. He asked me to send a few more for his collection, to which I was happy to fulfil for him.
