I got Scott many years ago TTM, and then later, I got Scott again as part of the Canton Acquisition back in 2011 on his Topps and Pro Set (’89) cards. Still there were a few more cards of his I wanted to get his autograph on, including his Fleer ’90 card.

Well played Jeff! Well played. So… I sent off to Jeff, a career non-responder, and was surprised to get an autograph from him on one of the two cards I sent, and a note, asking for more cards for his kids. After digging through my boxes and ordering a few extras, I reloaded and sent Jeff a stack of cards, asking to trade a few autographs in exchange for them. I was surprised to get so many others back, but hopefully his kids really liked the ones he kept.
Jeff appears in Tecmo Super Bowl. He adds much needed power to the Dolphins defensive line front.

Well, card companies cashed in on Leonard after he got that NFL Player of the Week Honor in 1989 for roughing up the Oilers. He had zero cards before that and then Score, Topps and Fleer all added Leonard in their respective sets for 1990. The shot above from the GameDay card is probably from that game as well.
Celebrating the game, the players, the cards, and the autographs for over 25 years.
