I hadn’t ever gotten Danny at Cowboys training camp as he was with the team just one camp before his holdout. It was a longtime coming, but the Score Supplemental had sat in my deck for years and needed to be signed.
Oddly I got an RTS on Danny even though I had the correct address and saw other people getting back successes from him. I decided to go ahead and try again and luck had it, I got him this time. Maybe his mailbox was full. I am not sure.
