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!”
