I really liked the Star Pics set at the time. (It was battling Classic for the college draft card market at the turn of the 90s.) As it was quite a niche market, unfortunately Star Pics was one of the first inglorious victims of the card market implosion by 93. As I casually collect the set, it’s more for the design and photos than player notoriety.
Highly regarded OL out of the University of Michigan, played for the Wolverines from 1987- 91, starting 48 consecutive contests.
Over that period he was an offensive captain and a finalist for both the Outland Trophy and the Lombardi Award as a Senior.
Selected near the top of Round 2 by then then Los Angeles Raiders in 1992 who started him at tackle.
Played for the Raiders through 1995, however suffered from a variety of injuries and disagreements with the coaching staffs.
Signed as an unrestricted free agent by the Carolina Panthers where he saw a renaissance blocking for the franchise in 1996-97 at guard.
Rejoined the Raiders in 99 but was released in camp and subsequently retired.
Played in 68 games, starting 56 contests.

Great cards here of Greg. It took a lot of digging to find his address but after cross referencing a few sources, and researching his success percentage, I decided to give him a shot on these cards. I rarely get the chance to shoot out Star Pics cards, so this one was a special treat to get back after an extended wait. I love how he signed his Action Packed card in between his two hands. Great placement there.
Celebrating the game, the players, the cards, and the autographs for over 25 years.
