NOTES:

I had failed on Chris way back in 2017 using his old address. I had the envelope sitting around and found a new address recently and decided to give him a try. I thought that the NY/NJ Ultimate 1992 team stats card, had him pictured on the front. It is clearly someone with a 20, but he told me it looked like a 5- and did not sign it.

McKinney, Steve (2)

Upper Deck 2001 Houston Texans, #HT8

Card: Upper Deck 2001 Houston Texans Inaugural Set
Acquired: TTM 2021, C/o Home

NOTES:

I had forgotten that I had gotten Steve previously as part of the Albany acquisition way, way back in 2012. It didn’t really deaden the excitement I felt however getting this autograph, considering Steve doesn’t sign very often, whether due to demand or reluctance, the turn around was pretty quick clocking in at a speedy 6 days. I really like this set, and have tried off and on through the years to get some of them signed but I am hesitant to try to get them signed TTM as these sets seem to be a bit rarer than advertised or sold.
