NOTES:

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!”

NOTES:

Rodney is not a TTM signer, so when my friend offered to trade me Rodney and Mel Gray for a Jamaal Charles autograph consignment, I jumped at the chance. Hopefully I’ll get another shot at him on a few more set needs in the future.

NOTES:

Great autograph here from Scott. I think that my buddy Mark from Mark’s Signing Bonus floated this address along to me. I think that Scott could’ve really had a career in Spring ball if he had just kept chugging with the XFL and USFL.
