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.

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.
Brian Noble was a 5th round pick out of Arizona State that quickly established himself as a starter in the Packers LB corps.
A tackling machine, Noble posted 104 tackles and 3 sacks his rookie season.
Best season came in 1989, with 138 total tackles, 2 sacks, 1 fumble recovery, and 2 interceptions.
Had 6 seasons of 98+ tackles over career.
At the beginning of the season he had 843 total tackles.
Incredibly durable up to that point, Noble started 119 games, but a career ending knee injury ended his season after only 2 games.
Noble has been busy since retirement, first going into broadcasting.
Later he owned the AFL2 Green Bay Blizzard, before the league ceased operations in 2009,
He’s moved into coaching currently at the high school level in Nevada.

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.
