He’d anchor down his CB spot, posting 3 picks and 12 PBUs, enroute to an appearance in World Bowl II.
After the season concluded, he was resigned by the Seahawks and saw limited action posting 4 tackles and a forced fumble.
Malcolm joined the CFLUSA initiative, as a member first of the Sacramento Goldminers in 1993.
He immediately became entrenched as starter, and had 18 PBU and 3 picks in 18 games that season.
His 18 PBUs set a franchise mark.
When the franchise moved to SA, so did Frank, where he had 3 interceptions for 113 yards and 2 TDs, including a 67 yarder in 1995.
After a season off and the end of the CFLUSA plan, Malcolm returned to the CFL as a member of the Edmonton Eskimos in 1997.
He’d play there through 1998, retiring after the season.
After a three year hiatus he returned to the Esks with a vengeance in 2002.
His 2002 seasons remains one for the record books when Malcolm notched 7 picks for 263 yards and FIVE TDs.
His 5 return TDs is a franchise, if not a football record for a single season.
After the 2006 season, Malcolm retired and began coaching football in the Houston area.
2004 All CFL
After two attempts to get Malcolm, I haggled with an EBay seller over this card to knock this autograph out. Malcolm here has quite an interesting story winding his way through Spring football history to the CFL, and then there, taking a 3 year hiatus and still coming back- in form no less, and dominating the competition. His single season 5 TD mark is an incredible feat at any level of competition, and his career 8 TDs is nothing to sneeze at either.
Recommended and quickly reunited with his former college QB Kerwin Bell.

Galen didn’t have any cards of himself made. I considered making one, but at the time I was artistically uninspired, so after arming up with a few World League helmet cards, I decided to fire one off to him. Now, my big thing recently is getting coaches to draw me up a play. I also peppered him with questions about the spread offense and his time in the World League. Although he didn’t give me any insight into his time in the WLAF/ NFLE, he did author two plays for me. They are run plays, but I’m very happy nonetheless he took the time to put these together.
One of my latest retry replies came through after I saw a few successes pop up in some of the Facebook groups I frequent. I shot these cards out immediately and he graciously signed after a nail biting 16 days where I saw a couple of others get theirs back first! I’m also not really sure what he inscribed outside of Thunder and #49, but I’m happy to cross Roger off the list.
Celebrating the game, the players, the cards, and the autographs for over 25 years.
