Well there’s a first for everything. I struggled to find Basil even going so far as to looking for him through an offender database. I received the card back damaged and signed on the back, so I’ll take what I can get especially after throwing up a hail mary at the address I found.

Jason Wallace played defensive back and returned kicks for the Virigina Cavaliers from 1988 to 1990. He finished his college career with 11 interceptions for 72 yards and a TD. Against Maryland he took a punt 60 yards for a TD in 1990- while tallying 32 punt returns for 410 yards on the year.
Wallace was heartbroken not to make the Colts as a free agent in 1991. He signed with the Ohio Glory of the World League in 1992. He matured quickly under the tutelage of positional coach Dennis Thurman, but during the 3rd quarter of the opening game, he tore ligaments in his left ankle. The doctors didn’t believe he’d play again, but somehow Jason only missed 5 games, and intercepted 3 passes over the back half of the season. The Glory elected to protect him going into 1993, but the league suspended operations, and wouldn’t be seen again until 1995.
He joined the Arizona Cardinals but did not make the squad, so he hopped on over to join the CFL revolution with the Sacramento Gold Miners in 1993 and 94, and then joined the franchise when it moved to San Antonio in 1995.
Retired, he lives in Texas, where he is involved in a variety of football and sports related initiatives.

A three year starter at the University of Akron at tackle, John Buddenberg clocked in at 6’5″, 279. He’d be selected in the 10th round of the 1989 NFL Draft by the Cleveland Browns and then later spent time on the rosters of the Minnesota Vikings (1989) and Pittsburgh Steelers (1990). During his time in the NFL, Buddenberg was shifted inside to play guard.
In 1991 John was selected by the Sacramento Surge of the World League of American Football. A stalwart member of the Surge’s offensive line front, he played in all 20 regular season games for the franchise over the lifetime of the World League (1991-1992), earning first-team All-World League in ’92. For both years he’d return to the NFL and was on the practice squad of the Atlanta Falcons.
After the World League reorganized following the 1992 season- the Sacramento Surge jumped to the CFL and became the Goldminers. John joined the franchise and played both guard and tackle for Sacramento in 1994, and (for the franchise when it moved to San Antonio and became) the Texans in 1995.
John currently lives in Ohio. He responded with a nice note and two extra autographed cards (the Jogo ones) thanking me for being a fan of the World League.
Celebrating the game, the players, the cards, and the autographs for over 25 years.
