  • Donald Driver played WR at Alcorn State catching  88 receptions for 1993 yards over his college career.
  • Late 7th round pick of the Green Bay Packers in the 1999 NFL Draft.
  • Stuck behind Antonio Freeman and Corey Bradford early in his career, but with Bradford’s departure to Houston in 2002, things quickly changed.
  • He’d start all 16 games in 2002, and go over 1,000 yards for the first time in his career on 70 catches.
  • After a down year in 2003, Driver went on a very improbable run, going over 1.2K yards the next 3 seasons, and over 1K yards the following 3 seasons after that.
  • In 2009, Donald became the Packers all-time leading receiver, finishing eventually with 743 catches when he retired following the 2012 season.


  • Pro Bowl 2002, 2006-08, 2010.
  • Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame


I really wanted Donald’s autograph, but after missing out on him back in 2015, I didn’t really expect to get another shot, so I never reloaded. When he started signing, about the same time of year as he did back in 2015, I just grabbed what I could and sent it out as soon as I could with a small donation to grease the wheels.

That thine alms may be in secret: andthy Father which seeth in secrethimself shall reward thee openly.

-Matt 6:4

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved

-Romans 10:9


Purely needing Eugene on a few more set needs, I decided to hit him up again after a few years for them. The Action Packed cards are particularly beautiful.

Brian had some great cards over the years so it was a hard choice for me on what to send him. He appeared in all the major sets and later, maybe in another 10 years or so I might try him again as there are so many that I still would like to get him on.

He was a great signer 10 or so years ago and then pretty much just stopped. I had his cards in my priority shoe box for a very long time, so I shot these out as soon as he popped up again.
