NOTES:

Steve wrote me a very nice note, thanking me for the autograph request and asking for additional cards, since he hadn’t seen this one in quite sometime. He has a great autograph, and the silver sharpie is a nice touch.

Against the San Antonio Riders in Week 8 of the 91 season- he had an improbably long, juggling TD catch, but it unfortunately was called back, because he got pushed out of bounds and came back in.

INSCRIPTION:

Romans 10:9
because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
Leaf Certified Materials 2003, #61

NOTES:

Since his playing days Kyle dabbled in sports broadcasting for NFLE and later the Big 10 Network, and financial advisor. Brady was notoriously booed by the Jets faithful on Draft Day 1995 who wanted Warren Sapp instead, therefore I have always seen him as more of a Jag than a Jet.

Erickson, Dennis

Card: Topps AAF 2019
Acquired: TTM 2019, C/o Home
Sent: 5/16 Received: 5/24 (8 days)

CAREER SNAPSHOT:

  • Dennis Erickson took over at Miami (FL) (after the departure of Jimmy Johnson) coaching the school to the National Title in 1989 and 1991.

  • He departed Miami (FL) in 1994 and was named head coach of the Seattle Seahawks.

  • Erickson compiled a 39-41 record with the Seahawks over the next 4 years.

  • After a successful stint at Oregon St, Dennis returned to the pros again, to coach with the San Fransisco 49ers in 2003.

  • He coached at Idaho and Arizona State after that and at Utah briefly as a positional coach, retiring in 2016.

  • Erickson compiled a 179-96-1 record as a college coach.

  • Dennis heard the siren’s call one last time, and was lured out of retirement by the Alliance of American Football in 2018, coaching the Salt Lake City Stallions to a 2-5 record before the league fell apart.

ACCOLADES:

  • State of Washington Hall of Fame 2017

  • NCAA National Champion¬† ¬†(89/91)

  • College Football Hall of Fame inductee

NOTES:

This is an absolutely terrible card of Dennis. They could have actually airbrushed his face a bit more, but instead he looks like a craggily zombie with that green filter. Dennis has a pretty interesting coaching tree under him that includes Jim Zorn, Tommy Tuberville, Dan Quinn, Ed Orgeron, and Jim Mora Jr.
