That thine alms may be in secret: andthy Father which seeth in secrethimself shall reward thee openly.

-Matt 6:4

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved

-Romans 10:9


Purely needing Eugene on a few more set needs, I decided to hit him up again after a few years for them. The Action Packed cards are particularly beautiful.

Webb, Richmond ‘Bam Bam’ (2)

CARDS: GameDay 1993, Score Supplemental 1990, Action Packed 1990, Fleer Update 1990
ACQUIRED: IP 2022, Big Hits & Politics Book Signing



Richmond was one of the last of the former players to arrive. I was very happy to meet him again after the Houston Fan Fest about 10 years prior. Bam Bam egged me on Twitter to come on out to the event, telling me that, “He’d be there,” As incentive to get me to make the drive from Austin. Very personable and easy to talk to, we covered a variety of topics in a short amount of time before I had to go.

He’s no longer a member of the Texans Ambassador program. That ended about a year ago. Now that the franchise is old enough, they have their own history and players.

Richmond inked these 4 cards, plus two others that were consignments for friends. I had probably 10 other cards, but I didn’t want to overload him. I think he acknowledged that by letting me know that he’d be up in my neighborhood maybe this year to watch a Dolphins game with a fan group and would give me a heads up.

I’m looking forward to it.

Armstrong, Bruce (3)

Fleer 1990, #317

CARDS: Skybox 1992, Gameday 1992, Proset 1989, Fleer 1990

After I got Bruce a few years ago, I remember opening up a box searching for another player and saying, “uggggghhhh…”, After I realized that I had a beautiful Skybox card of him that I wanted to have him sign. I set it aside and waited patiently hoping he’d still be a good signer when the time would come around again.

As the pandemic set in, I started really developing and formalizing a lot of set needs. I used to like to just pick and choose action shots and pretty cards to send to players, but now I’ve become more directed, as all four of these sets became set needs after COVID came and supposedly went.
