I hadn’t ever gotten Danny at Cowboys training camp as he was with the team just one camp before his holdout. It was a longtime coming, but the Score Supplemental had sat in my deck for years and needed to be signed.
Oddly I got an RTS on Danny even though I had the correct address and saw other people getting back successes from him. I decided to go ahead and try again and luck had it, I got him this time. Maybe his mailbox was full. I am not sure.

I remember Jerry being one of the few players at the time that I had cards of for the Glory/ Riders preseason game. The dents on the corners of the Score Supplemental bear the scars of both the preseason game and the infamous Hail Storm Game. I never got Jerry, and put this card away for many years.
Later, when I was coming back to the hobby I put this card aside. I love the Score card, as it not only shows a great action shot of Jerry in a single bar face mask, which was quickly becoming a rarity back then, but also the dirt of Municipal Stadium. Great card.

This is a great looking card of Clarence, and I had always wanted to get it signed. I tried back in 2019 to get him, but ran into a wrong address. I love these players who played a few years, had a few cards and have a great story to tell.
Celebrating the game, the players, the cards, and the autographs for over 25 years.
