1992 Classic, #31


I failed on getting Casey back in 2019. I think I flushed a Loaded Cannon card, but that’s okay. After doing some research I tracked down a good address for him and shot these two cards out earlier in 2022. I was a bit disappointed when someone else who sent to him later than me stole my thunder and got him back first, but the TTM gods granted me their favor and finally I got Casey in the mail. The Classic is a bit smeared but no big deal. It was the Topps XFL 2001 that I was truly after.

  • At the turn of 1970, Alexander was traded to the LA Rams.

  • Byron Whizzer White Award 1972


I had coveted Kermit on this Action Packed card of his for sometime. After writing him back in 2019 I was surprised to get these cards back unsigned as he had a very good signing track record. I suppose that he may have taken offense to something I wrote in my letter, as I was unaware of his family tragedy.

Later a friend of mine got him through the mail and told me that in his response a family member stated that Kermit was struggling with his memory, so I figured now was as good as any time as any.

There was this quiet pipeline of offensive talent that came out of SFA in the mid to late 80s and Floyd was among them alongside guys like Patrick Jackson, Todd Fowler, James Noble, and Larry Centers. While Floyd’s Pro Set 1989 is a real head turner, his Score 1991 is a pretty goofy looking shot. No wonder you don’t see very many card shots of players after they’ve been tackled to the ground.
