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 I thought after training camp and cleaning up at HEB a few years ago in San Antonio I was done with Robert Jones, but then I realized I glaringly missed his Skybox 1992 card; An absolutely glorious card catching him in his college duds. As of 2022, the 1993 Skybox Premium or ‘Colors’ set has become a big draw to me, especially based on how it looks. I just love how these cards are designed. With this I’m probably done with Robert, all though I wouldn’t be surprised if I missed a Classic 92 blister card or something out there I still wanted to get him to sign.
Well 2 out of 4 isn’t bad as it’s apparent that Albert is a big collector of his own cards. He kept his Score 1989 and Action Packed 1991 that I sent him, but I still got these two nice autographs back on his Fleer 1990 Update and his Skybox 1992.
He also refuses to sign his Gameday 1992- claiming that it isn’t him. -And I mean with good reason, as he was cut by the Colts before he even played that season and later on joined the Steelers. Now I can confirm that Gameday, like other card makers was engaged in the quiet, slick practice of using old player photos for current cards because they just looked good, so it’s entirely possible that they did get a good shot of him from a few years prior so that they could include him in the set with the Colts uniform on.
Celebrating the game, the players, the cards, and the autographs for over 25 years.
