NOTES:

When I sent to Stanley way, way back in 2011, he graciously signed 3 of 4 cards. Unfortunately he didn’t sign the card I truly wanted him to sign most of all- Action Packed Rookies 1990, a dire set need. I chocked it up as a lesson learned, and decided after a few years wait to give him another shot in 2017. This time he flat out didn’t respond. I was an outlier to a player who is typically a solid signer TTM, so I waited again a few more years, and finally in 2021, nabbed him on these three beautiful cards.

NOTES:

This signing was quite affordable- I believe coming in at $10.00 a card, so I threw 3 out there. He’s nearly impossible to get by mail so I was very happy to get him on my Action Packed Rookies as it is a set need. It is a disappointing card, as it is his back… looks like in a huddle, and his face and hands are completely obscured.

Pro Set though- great cards. In fact he shares a Pro Set 1990 #800 with Emmitt Smith that was part of the Update set you mailed out for, as well as card #1 in Pro Set 1991. If another signing comes around this cheap, I will try again, even though his autograph is quite pedestrian.

Mark Carrier makes his debut in Tecmo Super Bowl and is a monster on defense for the Bears secondary clocking in as the 5th rated defensive back with the highest interception ability.

Wooden, Terry

CARD: Action Packed Rookies 1990
ACQUIRED: EBay, 2021

Terry Wooden played LB for the Syracuse Orangemen. He was a second round pick of the Seattle Seahawks, who were reloading on defense and spent their first 3 picks on defense during the 1990 draft. Terry got off to a fast start but was injured after 8 contests, finishing with 39 tackles. In his first full season with the franchise in 91, Terry posted 105 tackles, 2 sacks, and 4 fumble recoveries in 15 starts. His best season came in 1994, when Terry had 127 total tackles, 2 fumble recoveries, and 3 interceptions for 78 yards, including a 69 yard TD. After the 1996 season, Terry joined the Chiefs in 1997 for a year and the Raiders for one season in 1998.

As of 2021, Terry is one of the many upcoming talented scouts in the NFL and works in the front office of the New Orleans Saints. He is a notorious non-signer, so I figured I might as well get this one off of Ebay.
