- Malcolm Frank played for the Baylor Bears back in the day when the team was in the SWC, and was renowned for having a nasty defense.
- A three year starter with the Bears at DB, Frank had 5 picks for 131 yards.
- Going undrafted, he’d sign with the Seahawks, but not see any action in 1991.
- Malcolm was drafted by the Orlando Thunder of the World League in ’92.
- He’d anchor down his CB spot, posting 3 picks and 12 PBUs, enroute to an appearance in World Bowl II.
- After the season concluded, he was resigned by the Seahawks and saw limited action posting 4 tackles and a forced fumble.
- Malcolm joined the CFLUSA initiative, as a member first of the Sacramento Goldminers in 1993.
- He immediately became entrenched as starter, and had 18 PBU and 3 picks in 18 games that season.
- His 18 PBUs set a franchise mark.
- When the franchise moved to SA, so did Frank, where he had 3 interceptions for 113 yards and 2 TDs, including a 67 yarder in 1995.
- After a season off and the end of the CFLUSA plan, Malcolm returned to the CFL as a member of the Edmonton Eskimos in 1997.
- He’d play there through 1998, retiring after the season.
- After a three year hiatus he returned to the Esks with a vengeance in 2002.
- His 2002 seasons remains one for the record books when Malcolm notched 7 picks for 263 yards and FIVE TDs.
- His 5 return TDs is a franchise, if not a football record for a single season.
- After the 2006 season, Malcolm retired and began coaching football in the Houston area.
- 2004 All CFL
After two attempts to get Malcolm, I haggled with an EBay seller over this card to knock this autograph out. Malcolm here has quite an interesting story winding his way through Spring football history to the CFL, and then there, taking a 3 year hiatus and still coming back- in form no less, and dominating the competition. His single season 5 TD mark is an incredible feat at any level of competition, and his career 8 TDs is nothing to sneeze at either.
