Nash, Joe

Gameday 1992, #157

Cards: Pro Set 1989, Fleer 1990, Action Packed 1990, GameDay 1992
Acquired: TTM 2020, C/o Home
Sent: 10/13 Received: 10/24 (11 Days)

CAREER SNAPSHOT:

  • Joe Nash went undrafted out of Boston College and was a free agent signee of the Seattle Seahawks in 1982.

  • He was used early in his career as a nose tackle, and then switched over to defensive tackle in 1990.

  • In 1985 Joe had perhaps his best statistical season with 9 sacks and 87 total tackles.
  • During the season opener in 1993 he recorded his only interception- a 13 yard he returned for a TD against San Diego.

  • Played for the Seahawks through 1996, starting 169 of 218 contests, a franchise record.
Action Packed 1990, #255

ACCOLADES:

  • Pro Bowl 1984

  • First Team All-Pro 1984

  • Seattle Seahawks 35th Anniversary Team

NOTES:

Joe Nash also appears in both Tecmo Bowl and Tecmo Super Bowl. He along with Bob Nelson (GB) appear in a 3-4 defensive set, and at the snap could be timed to dive and sack the quarterback. While this is considered an exploit of the game, we banned it entirely from competitive play.

Joe is well loved by old school Seahawks fans. He has returned on occasion as Seattle alumni and has even raised the flag as the 12th Man. He also worked for many years on a pit crew in NASCAR.

Joe’s Pro Set 1989 card really sticks out to me. I just love the photo of the action with the action going on around him. Just so well framed.

NOTES:

I had written the Sidewinder way back in 2011, but at the time he was asking for a donation that I couldn’t afford, so 8 years later I gave him another shot with the money and he signed these two cards. I just figured he could’ve used a sharpie instead of a ball point pen.

Sammy as of 2021 has his own construction company in Mississippi that he started while he was still playing for the Broncos.
