NOTES:

Andy had a lot of cards throughout his career. Oddly he didn’t make the cut with any of my favorite pet sets, but he happened to be in my favorite draft- 1989. His son currently plays OL for the Houston Texans.

Fleer Update 1990, #U-35 Pro Set 1991, #520

NOTES:

I had tried previously to get Don’s autograph but had failed twice. The first time was an RTS with his new address, so I packed everything up and resent. Everyone else got their stuff back but me. After waiting a few years and reloading I decided to give him another shot and got him on these great cards.
