I failed on getting Casey back in 2019. I think I flushed a Loaded Cannon card, but that’s okay. After doing some research I tracked down a good address for him and shot these two cards out earlier in 2022. I was a bit disappointed when someone else who sent to him later than me stole my thunder and got him back first, but the TTM gods granted me their favor and finally I got Casey in the mail. The Classic is a bit smeared but no big deal. It was the Topps XFL 2001 that I was truly after.
Jim had a few cards that came out at the turn of the century that I came across. After researching possible places he lived, I took a shot at where he’s currently coaching. Jim Kubiak is not related to former coach Gary Kubiak.
Finished second on the team in receptions with 34 receptions for 461 yards and 3 TDs.
Had monster game, catching 8 passes for 120 yards and 2 TDs, to help beat previously unbeaten London in final week of season.
Caught 34 passes for 374 yards in 1992.
Returned to World League, and the Dragons in 1995 after league hiatus.
Caught 40 passes for 544 yards and 2 TDs that season.
Played final season in 1996 with the Dragons, catching a career high 43 passes (376 yards and 2 TDs).
At time of retirement, was World League’s all time receptions leader.

A lot of people are looking out for me, and again a special shout out to my friend CFLfaninPhilly for pointing out this auction on EBay to me. I was able to drop in and snipe it out at the last second at a very cheap price. I searched for a very long time for Demetrius, before learning of his passing only a few days after finding a working address. (It was eye opening to discover how many Demetrius Davis’ exist in this world.) As he is covered in all 3 sets, just finding one autographed was a major coup. The seller of the card indicated that he was old and done with collecting and loved going to training camps, through the mail, and spring training, so I figured this one was a low risk/ high reward situation.
Demetrius passed away of a heart attack (enlarged heart) in December of 2012 at the age of 45, following a pickup basketball game. Truck touched a lot of people’s lives with his positivity, humor, and inspiration. CC Sabathia, (Davis’ cousin) a pitcher for the Yankees, renovated a North Vallejo basketball court at 1601 Fairgrounds Drive and named it after Demetrius.
Celebrating the game, the players, the cards, and the autographs for over 25 years.
