  • See Alonzo Highsmith

  • Has continued to establish himself as an up and coming front office executive.

  • Joined the Cleveland Browns front office in 2018 as their Vice President of Player Personnel.

  • As of 2020 works in the Seattle Seahawks front office. 


I think I got really lucky with Alonzo, as he signed all 4 of these cards for me, with two of them becoming more recent set needs. He stopped signing shortly thereafter TTM, but I figured since it’d been nearly 10 years, it was OK to come back and tap that vein again.

Mark is a great signer TTM and has a stack of really good cards. I grabbed all of these from 1990 and sent them off covering most of the ones I wanted signed right out of the gate. I especially love the lighting and photography on the Score 1990 entry. While a drop off from the 89 set, this one is highly underrated.
