Mike Schad (OL) was a 1st Round pick of the Los Angeles Rams in 1986, who hailed from Queens, Canada. At the time, was the highest Canadian born player selected in NFL Draft (#23 overall). Injuries derailed Schad’s first two seasons in the NFL so badly, he was left exposed by the Rams in Plan B during 1989. Joined the Eagles in March of ’89 and was immediately slotted in as starter at LG. Ironically earned a game ball for helping the Eagles beat the Rams in 1990, 27-21. Played with the Eagles through 1993 and the Browns in 1994. Started 55 games (62 played) over NFL career. Returned to Canada for final season with the Ottawa Rough Riders in 1995.
I think Mike had 3… maybe 4 cards total in his career, so the fact I had 50% of them, and one of them was a set need- I think it was a good sign to go ahead and send these two out to him.

Yeah so I had a lot more set needs I needed to corral when it came to Mike Tomczak. -Three of them are represented here. He was kind enough to inscribe them as well. Basically this should close the book on any further need to get Mike TTM further.
Celebrating the game, the players, the cards, and the autographs for over 25 years.
