I remember Jerry being one of the few players at the time that I had cards of for the Glory/ Riders preseason game. The dents on the corners of the Score Supplemental bear the scars of both the preseason game and the infamous Hail Storm Game. I never got Jerry, and put this card away for many years.
Later, when I was coming back to the hobby I put this card aside. I love the Score card, as it not only shows a great action shot of Jerry in a single bar face mask, which was quickly becoming a rarity back then, but also the dirt of Municipal Stadium. Great card.

Jason Wallace played defensive back and returned kicks for the Virigina Cavaliers from 1988 to 1990. He finished his college career with 11 interceptions for 72 yards and a TD. Against Maryland he took a punt 60 yards for a TD in 1990- while tallying 32 punt returns for 410 yards on the year.
Wallace was heartbroken not to make the Colts as a free agent in 1991. He signed with the Ohio Glory of the World League in 1992. He matured quickly under the tutelage of positional coach Dennis Thurman, but during the 3rd quarter of the opening game, he tore ligaments in his left ankle. The doctors didn’t believe he’d play again, but somehow Jason only missed 5 games, and intercepted 3 passes over the back half of the season. The Glory elected to protect him going into 1993, but the league suspended operations, and wouldn’t be seen again until 1995.
He joined the Arizona Cardinals but did not make the squad, so he hopped on over to join the CFL revolution with the Sacramento Gold Miners in 1993 and 94, and then joined the franchise when it moved to San Antonio in 1995.
Retired, he lives in Texas, where he is involved in a variety of football and sports related initiatives.

Phil Logan played college ball for the Kentucky Wildcats from 1987 to 1990. In his Senior campaign, Phil caught 37 passes for 565 yards and 4 TDs. He finished ranked 4th on the school’s charts with 83 receptions for 1219 yards and 4 TDs. He also had a memorable 85 yard kick return for a TD (his only return of the year) in his Junior season as well.
Phil joined the World League in late 1991. He’d be selected by the Ohio Glory in 1992. During the season Phil caught 17 passes for 256 yards and 2 TDs- including a 51 yard barnburner. After the league failed, Phil played a season with the Massachusetts Marauders of the Arena Football League.
Phil had this really solid Wild Card entry that I always wanted to get signed, and over the last year or two I’ve really made a breakthrough with locating many players in the World League- especially those with common names. Phil was very gracious and kind in his response to me and thanked me for writing him and really making his day.
Celebrating the game, the players, the cards, and the autographs for over 25 years.
