I really respected Matt. -He always had the Texans number. I wrote Matt right at the end of the 2012 season, after he said that he was very good with fan mail. I tossed these two cards in, because I couldn’t find the Score 2009 or the Donruss Rookies & Stars 2009 I wanted to send.I never knew what a journey it’d be for these cards…
It took roughly 8.5 years to get these back. In that time, I got a job, got married, moved 3 times, and had a kid. I never thought I’d see these again, but Matt now represents the longest wait I’ve had for any TTM ever, besting Santana Dotson by… 2 and a half years or so.
