Great autograph here from Scott. I think that my buddy Mark from Mark’s Signing Bonus floated this address along to me. I think that Scott could’ve really had a career in Spring ball if he had just kept chugging with the XFL and USFL.

SAGE Hit 2013, #117

NOTES:

Denard was pretty easy to find on the web, but he wouldn’t sign from home. It took him a while to get back to me, but it appears he signs his fanmail once a year through the Jags right now.

I was pretty disappointed in the Topps AAF 2019 entry. The fact that the certified is just the same as the base card minus a few effects is quite lazy.
