NOTES:

With renewed vigor I have begun assembling the autographs of the members of the NFLE to pair with their member teams. Ron had quite a few cards and I was lucky to get him on all of them (Bowman, Topps, Leaf) in one shot TTM. I like all 3 of the sets, but I tend to lean a bit more towards the Leaf set.
