Pretty pleased with myself on this one. Lots of things I liked about this one. First is that I just don’t get very many Jaguars’ autographs. Second was that Quinn played in the NFLE for the Berlin Thunder. Third was that he was World Bowl IX MVP.
A great autograph here from Jonathan. I really like the Pacific ’02 card, but something that really bugs me about the photo is the tangent on his facemask near his mouth. I can’t tell if I’m looking at his mouth, a shadow, or his mouth piece. It’s distracting because it reads as a second mouth.
