Barely missing the top 10 cut of longest waits is Charles Arbuckle. Obviously I felt I was never getting this one back but lo and behold at my old address, there it was some 880+ days later.

I never noticed until now that the UCLA logo was airbrushed off the helmet. By 1990, I thought that card companies stopped doing this, but I guess the NCAA or UCLA had something to say to Score about their logos. Great card though. The photography and color is spot on.

Once I knew that Charles was on the coaching staff of the Hotshots I moved him up in the queue to write to.


Armstrong, Harvey

Fleer 1990, #224

CARD: Fleer 1990, Photo Memorabilia
ACQUIRED: TTM 2022, C/o Home

Wow. Harvey Armstrong is just that guy you have to love. I mean here’s a guy who thought he was going to be a 2nd or 3rd round pick, and then was actually a 7th instead! He was upset and even considered going to the CFL but decided to stick it out with the Eagles, and it was a whirlwind ride for him. He did what we should all do and listen to veterans for advice and follow in their path. Harvey was able to carve out a nice career for himself over the years, and although the Super Bowl titles didn’t come to him, he saw accolades from SMU and a Fleer 1990 card- his only card ever produced at the end of his career.

He wrote a lot of inscriptions all over the envelope and enclosed the photo memorabilia as well. It can not be understated how important Harvey was to the SMU program on defense, giving them some football respect at the dawning of the 80s.
