NOTES:

I can not remember if I got help from Mark (Mark’s Signing Bonus) on this one- but if I must give credit where it is due. Over the years we’ve collaborated so much and he’s been very helpful and encouraging all along the way.

I had been searching for Marquise to get him specifically on these cards. The Panini Prism card was one that I had hoped to get signed when he played for the AAF, but later I just went ahead and bought a base certified autograph of. – And of course the XFL 2020 one was something I wanted to get shortly after the set came out. Marquise signed the back of my card for him and returned it, which was nice of him, but it was intended for him- in case he ever wanted to visit the shrine.

Great autograph here from Scott. I think that my buddy Mark from Mark’s Signing Bonus floated this address along to me. I think that Scott could’ve really had a career in Spring ball if he had just kept chugging with the XFL and USFL.
