Highsmith, Alonzo (2)

Cards: Pro Set 1990, Action Packed 1990, Fleer 1990, Topps 1990
Acquired: TTM 2021, C/o Home
Sent: 4/27 Received: 5/14 (17 days)

CAREER SNAPSHOT:

  • See Alonzo Highsmith

  • Has continued to establish himself as an up and coming front office executive.

  • Joined the Cleveland Browns front office in 2018 as their Vice President of Player Personnel.

  • As of 2020 works in the Seattle Seahawks front office. 

NOTES:

I think I got really lucky with Alonzo, as he signed all 4 of these cards for me, with two of them becoming more recent set needs. He stopped signing shortly thereafter TTM, but I figured since it’d been nearly 10 years, it was OK to come back and tap that vein again.

I tried to get his autograph a few years ago but didn’t have any luck so when a cheap signing came along I went ahead and dropped these two cards in the mail. Drummond appears in Tecmo Superbowl as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles.

NOTES:

I was very excited when Jeff joined the Oilers. It didn’t make much waves but I was convinced that he was going to be that missing part that was going to take the receiving corps to the next level. He then just disappeared in camp and I never heard from him until he was cut. I am not sure if he was an injury settlement, but I just remember being very disappointed.

Jeff had some great cards over the years and I was very happy to get these finally knocked out as they had been in ‘the box’ for a long time waiting for him to appear.
