SENT: 9/23 RECEIVED: 11/28 (66 Days)

CAREER SNAPSHOT:

NOTES:

Way, way back in 2010, I got Dan on a few cards care of the Lions where he was coaching. Almost immediately after gorging on four cards, I realized that there was this Pro Set 1991 MVP card that I had never gotten or recall seeing from my early days of collecting. I picked a copy up and held onto it for about 10 years before sending out to him again- just on the off chance another card I’d never seen before would appear.

In the meantime, Danny continued to build his coaching resume, working with the Bills from 2013 to 2018, and since then at his current stop with the Miami Dolphins.

Casillas, Tony

Pro Set 1991 (Update), #820 Upper Deck College Legends 2011, #5

NOTES:

Tony was one of those players at Dallas Cowboys Training Camp back in the early 90s I never was able to get. He rarely signed and when he did he was always too far down the line to get. I also thought that I had tried him previously and failed but this success was the first attempt that I had made to him TTM. He’s got lots of great cards, but these really stood out to me.

What I always remember most about Tony is when the Cowboys were playing the Lions in the playoffs in 1991, and Barry Sanders did what he does, and essentially turned Casillas around in a circle trying to chase Barry down.

Fleer Update 1990, #U-35 Pro Set 1991, #520

NOTES:

I had tried previously to get Don’s autograph but had failed twice. The first time was an RTS with his new address, so I packed everything up and resent. Everyone else got their stuff back but me. After waiting a few years and reloading I decided to give him another shot and got him on these great cards.
