Wilson, Harvey

Wild Card World League 1992, #111

CARD: Wild Card World League 1992
ACQUIRED: EBay, 2023
FAILURE: TTM 2017, C/o Work


  • Harvey Wilson was a 4 year starter at DB for Southern from 1986-’90.
  • He’d be selected by the London Monarchs in the 1991 World League Draft.
  • He finished the season with 27 tackles, 11 assists and a sack for the Monarchs that season as a hybrid LB/S.
  • During the 1992 season, Wilson secured a 10 yard interception.
  • Wilson stayed in playing shape and joined the Arena Football League in ’95 as a LB/ WR.
  • Played for the Connecticut Coyotes in 1995-96, and the Florida Bobcats from 1996 to ’98.


I gave up on Harvey, since I failed on him back in 2017. I saw that a seller on EBay had 3-4 autographed cards from World Leaguers that I wanted, so I threw him out a package offer. I would be surprised if these were forgeries, as there’s little to no market for player autographs from a forgotten league. It appears that Harvey signed this in pen or a fading marker, and then signed over his original graph with a sharpie.





Kennan, Larry (2)

Pro Set World League, #86

Card: ProSet 1991 WLAF
Acquired: TTM 2019, C/o Home
Sent: 11/9 Received: 11/16 (97days)
See Also: Larry Kennan
Failure: TTM 2010, C/o Work



Ah Larry Kennan. After getting his autograph sometime ago, I realized I didn’t get Larry’s autograph on this lone World League card in the Pro Set Series II insert set.

Kennan coached at the University of Incarnate Word for 4 seasons, compiling a record of 20-48 from 2014-2017. He’s retired and as of 2020 lives in San Antonio, Texas.

He responded to my request for his autograph in a very short amount of time and wrote on my letter, “My pleasure”. I had to do the digging for Larry’s address on my own, and was very surprised after getting a hit on him, that other people contacted me for his address as well.

Crossman, Danny (2)

Pro Set 1991, #708

CARD: Pro Set 1991
ACQUIRED: TTM 2020, C/o The Miami Dolphins
SENT: 9/23 RECEIVED: 11/28 (66 Days)



Way, way back in 2010, I got Dan on a few cards care of the Lions where he was coaching. Almost immediately after gorging on four cards, I realized that there was this Pro Set 1991 MVP card that I had never gotten or recall seeing from my early days of collecting. I picked a copy up and held onto it for about 10 years before sending out to him again- just on the off chance another card I’d never seen before would appear.

In the meantime, Danny continued to build his coaching resume, working with the Bills from 2013 to 2018, and since then at his current stop with the Miami Dolphins.
