ACCOLADES:

  • World Bowl IX MVP
  • NFLE Offensive Player of the Week (Week 5, 2001)
  • 2001 All-NFLE

NOTES:

Pretty pleased with myself on this one. Lots of things I liked about this one. First is that I just don’t get very many Jaguars’ autographs. Second was that Quinn played in the NFLE for the Berlin Thunder. Third was that he was World Bowl IX MVP.

A great autograph here from Jonathan. I really like the Pacific ’02 card, but something that really bugs me about the photo is the tangent on his facemask near his mouth. I can’t tell if I’m looking at his mouth, a shadow, or his mouth piece. It’s distracting because it reads as a second mouth.

NOTES:

Who knows what really happened to Anthony Smith?

“I’m a member of BMAP- the Black Male Achievement Program. I go to different schools to tell young people that if drugs are what they want to do, that if they want to destroy their lives, go on and do it. But stay away from the people that don’t want to do it.

Go ahead, kill yourself, but don’t kill other people. Don’t try to urge other people to accept what you bow to. I try to convince kids that there are a lot of things you can do to be productive with your life”
