When I started expanding the WLAF shrine to include the NFLE/ Europa, I immediately started looking for players who had cards that played for franchises that may not have been represented on their European teams.
As I was digging through the Claymores rosters, I found that Sean had quite a few cards, and I felt very inspired by his Classic ’93 entry. I picked up both that and his 93 Pro Set and sent them out to an address I found. (Sean’s last name obviously is not very common.)
He responded in a bit over a month, signing not only his cards, but including the Proline as an extra, included a business card promoting his Youtube channel and wrote on the envelope, “God Bless your work,” -I am assuming in reference to my ongoing quest to honor as many WLAF/ NFLE/ Europa players with their autograph and adding them to my shrine.
