He finished the season with 27 tackles, 11 assists and a sack for the Monarchs that season as a hybrid LB/S.
During the 1992 season, Wilson secured a 10 yard interception.
Wilson stayed in playing shape and joined the Arena Football League in ’95 as a LB/ WR.
Played for the Connecticut Coyotes in 1995-96, and the Florida Bobcats from 1996 to ’98.
I gave up on Harvey, since I failed on him back in 2017. I saw that a seller on EBay had 3-4 autographed cards from World Leaguers that I wanted, so I threw him out a package offer. I would be surprised if these were forgeries, as there’s little to no market for player autographs from a forgotten league. It appears that Harvey signed this in pen or a fading marker, and then signed over his original graph with a sharpie.
Matt was easy enough to find online that I shot these last two cards out to him. I absolutely love this Leaf Rookies & Stars card. It’s not just the figurative elements and dynamic pose, but the lighting is really what does it for me in this one. Great card.

I’ve never had anyone personalize my cards in quotations- but okay.
Despite finishing near the top of the statistical receiving charts at the time of his career- spanning 3 eras from the 60s to the 80s, Harold has not been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Whether it’s a combination of the infamous logger jam at receiver, or the fact his stats just don’t stand out as much because it was during the dead ball era, Harold is still waiting to hear his name called.
It’s interesting, cracking down on Harold’s stats, that he has such a high yards per reception (17.9 on 579 catches), but his longest catch is just 79 yards.
Great cards- Always love the Topps 71 set. It’s classy, and it’s grown on me over the years specifically. It’s still a casual collect for me, but among Topps sets it’s one of my favorites.
Celebrating the game, the players, the cards, and the autographs for over 25 years.
