Great cards here of Greg. It took a lot of digging to find his address but after cross referencing a few sources, and researching his success percentage, I decided to give him a shot on these cards. I rarely get the chance to shoot out Star Pics cards, so this one was a special treat to get back after an extended wait. I love how he signed his Action Packed card in between his two hands. Great placement there.
Rushed for 230 yards on 50 carries for the Knights.
Also turned a screen pass against the Galaxy into a 67 yard TD.
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.
Played college ball for Ohio State returning 24 kicks for 520 yards and catching 8 passes for 142 yards and a TD over 1984 and 1986.
Selected in the 7th round of the 1987 draft by the San Diego Chargers.
A blazing long distance runner, he was part of the Ohio St 400 Meter Relay team.
Saw time as a wide receiver, kick returner, and moonlighted occasionally as a runningback over 3 seasons for SD.
Best season came in 1988 when Jamie logged 810 yards on 31 kick returns, scoring a 94 yard TD.
During 1988 also had 536 Yards receiving and a TD on 39 catches.
Over 3 seasons ran 10 times for 82 yards.
Traded to the Los Angeles Raiders in 1990, seeing time exclusively as a kick returner.
Started 3 games in 1992 playing for the Cleveland Browns starting 3 games.
Played for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in 1994, catching 35 passes for 485 yards and 2 TDs.
Split time with the Blue Bombers and the Roughriders in 1995 retiring after the season.
Jamie wrote me a nice note thanking me for writing him. He has an amazing autograph, with just the right amount of pressure and curves, and an elegant enough stroke, at just the right size. Jamie was lucky, to play when he did, as he had some great cards produced during his playing days.
Celebrating the game, the players, the cards, and the autographs for over 25 years.
