Mike Sherrard is the story of perseverance through pain as he suffered multiple leg injuries through out his career. As of this post, he was a pretty good TTM signer, so I wanted to get him on a few cards of his I liked. Mike has been active in charitable circles for autism, and has begun making the rounds coaching football at the High School level.

Leaf Rookies & Stars 2000, #274


Mark during his college days was featured in a two page profile spread in Sports Illustrated (print).

He was pretty easy to find on the internet, so I went ahead and dropped him his Leaf card in the mail to sign. He responded and attached a nice sticky note to the card.

“Thanks for being a fan!”
