Panini Rookies & Stars 2010, #15

NOTES: Evans came to my attention when he burnt the Houston Texans secondary for two 83 yard touchdowns, and over 200 yards in a contest during 2006. Lee is not a TTM signer and has some beautiful cards, so I had to do a paid signing. I was a big fan of these two sets, so I didn’t hesitate to send them at a very affordable value.


Brown, Chykie

Card: UT Upper Deck 2011
Acquired: 2019, Paid Signing

I had been beating myself up for various reasons about not getting Chykie Brown. He originally appeared at a Texas Longhorns Neighborhood Bowling event way back in 2012 that Rod had invited me to, but I didn’t see him among the participants and only figured out after the fact I had missed out on getting his autograph on this card. As I have closed in on finishing this set off, he’s become quite the white whale for me. His certified card for some reason frequently fetches somewhere in the neighborhood of 100.00 on Ebay. Well out of my tastes and price range. So I stumbled luckily upon a signing and knocked him out for a reasonable 10 bucks and called it a day.

Chykie played for DBU (that’s Texas) from 2007 to 2010. He started 29 games at CB and posted 106 total tackles, 2 interceptions, 4 sacks, and 2 forced fumbles. The defensive minded Baltimore Ravens selected him in the 5th round of the 2011 NFL Draft. He’d go on to play 6 seasons in the NFL, playing for the Ravens (2011-14), Giants (2014-15), and Bengals (2016). He’d earn a Super Bowl ring in 2012 with the Ravens.


Davis, Will

Card: Topps AAF 2019
Acquired: 2019, EBay

Cornerback Will Davis brought a wealth of experience to the Salt Lake City Stallions when he joined the team in 2019. The corner played collegially with Utah State from 2011 to 2012 finishing with 99 total tackles, 8 tackles for loss, and 5 picks for 100 yards and a TD.

A third round selection of the Miami Dolphins in 2013, Will played with the Ravens and 49ers before returning to Salt Lake City- recording an interception, 5 pass deflections, and 30 combined tackles. Routinely tested on the outside, Davis recorded 14 pass deflections, 1 interception, 2 fumble recoveries, and 26 total tackles for Salt Lake.

After the AAF imploded Will was spotted on the roster of the XFL 2020 Showcase in Houston but did not join the XFL.
