2003 Topps Draft Picks & Prospects, #14

Didn’t have much in the tank left for Jimmy, except really for this one set need out of Gameday 1992. Outside of that Spoodog- who you may recall from my in person adventures from a few years prior, was downsizing his collection, or just got so bored of the hobby he was not really into it anymore. Anyway, he gave me a bunch of unsigned cards and this Jags card of Jimmy was among them, so, inspired, I thought if I ever got another shot I’d send this one out too.

I got really lucky getting Jimmy on these cards. During the pandemic he popped up on Twitter and offered to sign for fans. This lasted all for… 3 months before he quit again.

  • Played college ball at Illinois State University from 2003-06.
  • Set school single season records as a Junior catching 86 passes for 1465 yards and 12 TDs.
  • At the time of his departure from the school in 07, owned multiple career receiving records (192 catches, 3007 yards, and 29 receiving TDs).
  • Selected in the 3rd round of the 2007 NFL Draft by the Atlanta Falcons
  • As a rookie caught 37 passes for 437 yards and a TD.
  • After a disappointing season in 2008, the Falcons traded Laurent to the St. Louis Rams for a 5th and 6th round pick.
  • In 2010 had 34 receptions for 344 yards and 2 TDs.
  • Signed with the Chargers for the 2011 season but was cut in camp.
  • Immediately picked up by the Cowboys and went on to notch career highs with 54 receptions for 858 receiving yards and 11 TDs.
  • Signed with the Jaguars in 2012 for a big payday, but injuries- primarily concussions ended his career.


Some great looking cards here of Laurent. I mean I guess he’s best remembered for his brief time in Dallas. One wonders how it would’ve turned out if he stayed put with the Cowboys.


Amukamara, Prince

Upper Deck College Legends 2011, #85

CARD: Upper Deck College Legends 2011
ACQUIRED: Box Breaker, 2019


  • Prince Amukamara was a highly regarded athlete that played CB for the Nebraska Cornhuskers from 2007-10.
  • With measured speed and leaping skills from his days in track and basketball, he emerged as a lockdown DB in his Junior and Senior years for Nebraska.
  • He’d be the second DB selected off the board in the 2011 NFL Draft by the New York Giants.
  • Unable to break into the starting lineup behind Aaron Ross and Corey Webster, Amukamara finished with 14 total tackles, a pick and 3 pass breakups.
  • He started 11 games in 2012, with 53 total tackles, a pick and 7 pass deflections.
  • 2013 saw a career high 85 total tackles for Prince, 14 pass deflections, and another interception.
  • Prince had a career high 3 picks in 2014.
  • After the 2015 season, Amukamara signed a free agent contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars, earning nickleback duties.
  • From there he joined the Chicago Bears in 2017.
  • In 2018 Prince had his first career NFL TD, to go along with 3 picks on the season.
  • He played one final year in Chicago in 2019, but was cut in a cost cutting move.
  • He then spent 2020 on the practice squad of both the Raiders and Cardinals, and the 2021 offseason with the Saints.
  • Prince is currently considered a free agent.


A devout Christian, I am surprised that he didn’t put an inscription on all his cards. When Prince was drafted it came out pretty early that he was still a virgin. This briefly overshadowed his early playing career news. -He later married in 2014.
