Card: Ultimate World League 1992 TV Schedule 3 Acquired: TTM 2019, C/o Home Sent: 10/21 Received: 11/1 (11 days)
Defensive back Greg Eaglin (#26) graces the front of this TV Schedule card featuring the San Antonio Riders versus the Ohio Glory in their 1992 preseason matchup. The return envelope itself appeared to have been run over by a car and then mangled by a dog, but somehow it got back to me. -Regardless of the condition of the card, I am thankful that Greg took the time to sign. As of 2019, Greg resides in the Dallas, Tx area.
Defensive back Greg Eaglin started his college career at Texas, but transferred to University of Arkansas- Pine Bluff.
He was a free agent signee of the Philadelphia Eagles in 1991, but did not make the squad. Greg was selected by the San Antonio Riders of the World League in 1992 as their 28th selection. While with the Riders he intercepted one pass- during the infamous hailstorm game against the Ohio Glory, when a Pat O’Hara pass deflected off of offensive lineman Eric Harmon. He ended the season on the roster of the Frankfurt Galaxy.
Greg joined the CFL in 1993 when he signed with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. He’d finish out the season on the roster of the Calgary Stampeders but was released in July of 1994. Greg resigned with the Ti-Cats, and made an instant impact recording 5 interceptions in perhaps his best season as a pro. He’d sign with the Toronto Argonauts in ’95 and play with them until midway through the 1996 season. He’d then finish his career in the CFL back where he started again- back with the Ti-Cats.
In 1997, Eaglin played one lone season in the Arena leagues for the Iowa Barnstormers as a WR-LB.
Charles Puleri played ball at New Mexico State and saw action in both 1991 and 1992. Playing in 17 contests Puleri completed 257 of 456 passes for 3634 yards, and 21 touchdowns to 17 interceptions as a traditional dropback passer.
He joined the CFL in 1993 and played briefly for the Sacramento Gold Miners- attempting 2 passes, and then riding the bench for the Shreveport Pirates in 94. In 1995 Puleri joined Arena Football League. He played for the Miami Hooters that year and then the Texas Terror in 1996 throwing 3 TDs. Charles then went overseas and played in the NFLE for the London Monarchs. Seeing more mop up duty he threw for 488 yards and 2 TDs. Afterwards he again tried his hand at Arena football playing for the Iowa Barnstormers in 98. He saw his best season as a pro throwing 11 TDs on 67 attempts that season. In 1999 he played sparingly as a backup for the New Jersey Red Dogs, and then was in the camp of the Dallas Cowboys in 2000 but did not make the squad.
Charles is perhaps best known for his time in the XFL in 2001. Selected by the New York/ New Jersey Hitmen, Puleri was the starter for the squad entering the season, but was benched in favor of Wally Richardson during week 2. The league was… different than the NFL. They scripted some of their events including a fake controversy between Puleri and Richardson.
After the end of the XFL, Charlie returned to the Arena Football League, playing two more seasons for the Detroit Fury (2002) and the Buffalo Destroyers (2003).
Since football, Puleri has worked his way into mortgage finance. He signed these two cards for me, wrote me a nice note and included a few business cards.
Card: Wild Card World League 1992 Acquired: TTM 2019, C/o Home Sent: 8/24 Received: 9/7 (14 days)
Phil Logan played college ball for the Kentucky Wildcats from 1987 to 1990. In his Senior campaign, Phil caught 37 passes for 565 yards and 4 TDs. He finished ranked 4th on the school’s charts with 83 receptions for 1219 yards and 4 TDs. He also had a memorable 85 yard kick return for a TD (his only return of the year) in his Junior season as well.
Phil joined the World League in late 1991. He’d be selected by the Ohio Glory in 1992. During the season Phil caught 17 passes for 256 yards and 2 TDs- including a 51 yard barnburner. After the league failed, Phil played a season with the Massachusetts Marauders of the Arena Football League.
Phil had this really solid Wild Card entry that I always wanted to get signed, and over the last year or two I’ve really made a breakthrough with locating many players in the World League- especially those with common names. Phil was very gracious and kind in his response to me and thanked me for writing him and really making his day.
Celebrating the game, the players, the cards, and the autographs for over 25 years.
