Well after two failures early on in my collecting return- ten years later I finally square away Stump Mitchell. Stump holds a special place in my heart due to his association with the San Antonio Riders and the WLAF.
I had gotten Jim’s autograph previously and thought I’d closed the book on him, but realized after the fact that Action Packed had produced the Whizzer White Award set which had him in it. Like most from this set, it was a spectacular action shot of Jim that his autograph looks great on.
Cards: Upper Deck Legends 1997, Top Notch Signature Select Acquired: TTM 2018, C/o Home Sent: 9/15/18 Received: 1/13/20 (487 days) See Also: Bill Bradley ‘Super Bill’
Bill Bradley signed my custom card of him, and also sent back the extra with more inscriptions upon it. A solid return, he wrote me a nice note with a full page of additional inscriptions and thanked me for being a fan and putting this website together with my shrines to the multiple leagues.
I hadn’t seen Bill since he appeared in Austin for the Upper Deck set signing back in 2011. In the meantime, while he was coaching at Lamar (2012-2014) I found this Upper Deck Legends card I really wanted to get him on, but I opted not to try him through the mail yet.
Bill’s secondary in the AAF was an exciting unit to watch and led the league in turnovers. His coaching legacy now also includes the AAF Defensive Player of the Year Derron Smith, and a bevvy of players who were signed to NFL, Arena, and XFL rosters.
Celebrating the game, the players, the cards, and the autographs for over 25 years.
