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.
Terry Poole played OT for San Diego State from 2011-2014.
Selected in the 4th round of the 2015 NFL Draft by the Seattle Seahawks and was with the team through 2016.
Spent 2017 with the Dolphins and Texans.
In mid 2018, he became one of the early signings of the AAF, joining the San Diego Fleet, playing for the team through 2019 before it ceased operations.
Poole was selected by the Houston Roughnecks of the XFL in 2020.
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).
Tani Tupou played college ball for the Washington Huskies from 2010 to 2015 at defensive tackle. He recorded 59 career tackles and was not selected in the 2016 NFL Draft.
The Seahawks liked what they saw out of Tupou during mini camp and invited him back. He made the roster and saw action briefly during the season opener but didn’t record any stats, and be released about a month later. In 2017, he successfully transitioned from the Spring League back to the NFL signing with the Atlanta Falcons. Tupou would be on and off the roster through the season and into early 2018.
After a brief stint with the Arizona Cardinals, Tani signed with the Alliance of American Football. He’d be assigned to the San Diego Fleet for the 2019 season, and recorded 13 tackles, 4 QB hits and a sack in the Fleet’s 3-4 alignment. In April of that year, the AAF folded, so he played for the XFL with the Seattle Dragons in 2020, and then later for the Jousters of the Spring League, during their showcase in San Antonio.
In 2021, Tani made the transition to play for the Colorado XO’s of the World Rugby League and is considered one of the top prospects.
Celebrating the game, the players, the cards, and the autographs for over 25 years.
