He finished the season with 27 tackles, 11 assists and a sack for the Monarchs that season as a hybrid LB/S.
During the 1992 season, Wilson secured a 10 yard interception.
Wilson stayed in playing shape and joined the Arena Football League in ’95 as a LB/ WR.
Played for the Connecticut Coyotes in 1995-96, and the Florida Bobcats from 1996 to ’98.
I gave up on Harvey, since I failed on him back in 2017. I saw that a seller on EBay had 3-4 autographed cards from World Leaguers that I wanted, so I threw him out a package offer. I would be surprised if these were forgeries, as there’s little to no market for player autographs from a forgotten league. It appears that Harvey signed this in pen or a fading marker, and then signed over his original graph with a sharpie.
A hybrid linebacker/safety, Proctor was right at home playing in the role, where he helped the Surge win World Bowl II.
Played in 1993 for the Sacramento Gold Miners.
Signed with the San Diego Chargers in 1995, before heading over to the Arena Football League in 1996.
Played 9 seasons of Arena ball at LB/RB, starting with Connecticut and Florida in 1996.
Then one year stops with New Jersey, Grand Rapids, Iowa, and New York through 2001.
Spent final 3 years of football career (2002-2004) playing for the Tampa Bay Storm.
Has been a lightning rod of controversy, thanks to legal issues.
Well there’s a first for everything. I struggled to find Basil even going so far as to looking for him through an offender database. I received the card back damaged and signed on the back, so I’ll take what I can get especially after throwing up a hail mary at the address I found.

In an age of more sexy names, I really hadn’t considered the legacy of Babe, compared to guys like Tom Brady (of course), or even Drew Bledsoe or Steve Grogan for that matter. -That being said Babe paved the way for those guys.
