CARD: Topps AAF 2019 Certifed
ACQUIRED: 2019, Box Breaker


  • Jude Adejei-Barimah played DB for Bowling Green from 2011-14.
  • A situational starter in the secondary, he wasn’t a fulltime starter in the secondary until his senior campaign in 2014.
  • Still as a Sophomore in 2012, Jude posted 4 interceptions.
  • In 2014, Jude had 82 total tackles, 4 TFL, 1.5 sacks, 2 forced fumbles, a pick, and 11 pass deflections.
  • Signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2015 as a free agent.
  • In 2017, spent nearly the entire season on IR after fracturing his knee.
  • Jumpstarted his career in 2019, signing with the San Diego Fleet of the AAF.
  • After securing a roster spot on the Fleet, was injured in the season opener against the San Antonio Commanders.
  • He’d later be placed on IR with a wrist injury missing the rest of the abbreviated season.
  • Selected by the Tampa Bay Vipers of the XFL 2020 initiative and had contract terminated when the league ceased operations during COVID.

Favorite thing about it (AAF) has been seeing so many familiar faces on other teams that competed with or against in the past.

Jude stepped up for the Fleet as an ambassador after his injury, even doing an AMA on Reddit. He got in what he could during that first game against the Commanders, making a pick, and then taunting SA fans from the Fleet bench- though later in his AMA he admitted he very much enjoyed playing at the Alamodome.

CARD: Topps AAF Certified 2019
ACQUIRED: Box Breaker, 2019

  • Played DL 5 years at Hawaii from 2013-17.
  • Finished with 80 total tackles and 7 sacks over 3 years.
  • Went undrafted in 2018, and spent time in the camp of the Oakland Raiders.
  • Joined the AAF in 2019, playing for the San Diego Fleet.
  • Notched 7.5 tackles and .5 sacks over 8 contests.
  • Spent the remainder of the year in the CFL with the BC Lions, and then later the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
  • In 2022, signed with the Vegas Knight Hawks of the IFL.


Pretty happy to get this certified, but with an underwhelming autograph, I couldn’t help but be disappointed that Meffy didn’t spell out his entire name- though I don’t blame him. Later I pulled a second certified autograph of his that was fully spelled out.

As I was a season ticket holder, I had tried a few times to get Terry’s autograph throughout the XFL season since he had an AAF card, but didn’t ever run into him at preseason activities or exiting after game. With a bit of diligence I was able to track him down via the mail and he responded with a nice note thanking me for being a fan of both leagues (AAF & XFL).
