Great cards to add Reuben on here. The Action Packed 90 was a set need, but also a beautiful card. Topps 90 checking in here with a *rare* action shot couldn’t be missed. Action Packed 1991 oddly had the Saints with a white fleur de leis, a widespread printing error that wasn’t corrected from what I understand.
The last time I got Warren, he quickly stopped signing again before I could clear out a few more of my set needs and cards I liked- and he appears in all the great sets of the era I collected. I definitely decided to double dipped on this one.
I was pretty disappointed recently to hear that Warren decided to change his tune and is now fully selling the HOUSTON Oilers as part of the Tennessee Titans history. This coincided with the franchise’s late attempt to fully integrate Oilers history into Tennessee, as Houston fans were clamoring again about bringing the derrick and history home. Then the Tacks decided to have a homecoming game where they flew out all the players to Tennessee. Pretty good PR move on their part.
He used to be one of my favorite players, but I saw this as an absolute betrayal. It was odd because he was even quoted as saying that he never played for this fan base or in Tennessee but here he was being inducted into their Ring of Honor.
Oh well, thanks for the memories.
Celebrating the game, the players, the cards, and the autographs for over 25 years.
