After failing on Steve a year or two ago, I went ahead and got him on these two cards. I think this covers all the Dallas Cowboys cards I wanted him on, but I still have a few set needs from when he was with the Saints to send out in a few years.
Played collegially at the University of Miami, FL for Jimmy Johnson.
From the defensive end position, finished as the school’s all time leading sacker with 39.5.
Also chipped in 267 tackles and 25 TFL.
Second round pick of the San Fransisco 49ers in 1988.
Utilized primarily as a pass rushing specialist, chipped in 6 sacks in rookie season.
Reunited with Jimmy Johnson in draft day trade along with RB Terrence Flagler in 1990 to play with Cowboys.
Paid immediate dividends at DE, with 59 total tackles, 7.5 sacks and 2 fumbles.
After acrimonious holdout, was passed in depth chart by Tony Tolbert and was cut during the 91 season.
Claimed by the Bengals and moved to outside linebacker for the final 7 games of the year.
Had solid season in 1992, racking up a career high 9 sacks.
After a year with the Eagles in 1995, reunited again with college and Cowboys coach Jimmy Johnson to close out career.
Played 3 final seasons with Dolphins and was released in early 1999.
I hadn’t ever gotten Danny at Cowboys training camp as he was with the team just one camp before his holdout. It was a longtime coming, but the Score Supplemental had sat in my deck for years and needed to be signed.
Oddly I got an RTS on Danny even though I had the correct address and saw other people getting back successes from him. I decided to go ahead and try again and luck had it, I got him this time. Maybe his mailbox was full. I am not sure.
Fastest timed receiver in the 1986 NFL Draft, was the first selection of the Dallas Cowboys at #18.
Played college ball for UCLA, posting 121 career receptions for 1857 yards and 8 TDs.
Promising rookie year concluded with 41 receptions for 744 yards and 5 TDs.
Lost 1987 and 88 seasons to a broken leg in separate incidents.
Considered a bust by fans, signed by 49ers via Plan B in 1989.
Continued rehab and joined 49ers for playoffs helping team win Super Bowl XXIV.
Broke right leg again in 1990.
Put together solid campaign in 1992 with 38 receptions for 607 yards.
Signed with Giants as a free agent in 1993.
Dislocated hip and broke hip socket after solid start.
In 1994, scored career highs with 53 catches for 825 yards and 6 TDs.
Joined Denver Broncos in 1996, retiring before the 1997 regular season.
Mike Sherrard is the story of perseverance through pain as he suffered multiple leg injuries through out his career. As of this post, he was a pretty good TTM signer, so I wanted to get him on a few cards of his I liked. Mike has been active in charitable circles for autism, and has begun making the rounds coaching football at the High School level.
Celebrating the game, the players, the cards, and the autographs for over 25 years.
