Justin Blackmon is a sad story along the lines of Ryan Leaf or Todd Marinovich. I really hope that Justin gets another shot if he wants one. It’d be a great comeback story- even if it was with the Jags.
Had 7 catches for 130 yards and a TD for the Apollos during their abbreviated 2019 season.
Best game came against the Birmingham Iron when he caught 3 passes for 61 yards and a TD.
Waived during Tampa Bay’s final cuts of 2019, he later signed with the Eagles, but was cut at the end of the year.
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.

Andy had a lot of cards throughout his career. Oddly he didn’t make the cut with any of my favorite pet sets, but he happened to be in my favorite draft- 1989. His son currently plays OL for the Houston Texans.
Celebrating the game, the players, the cards, and the autographs for over 25 years.
