Well after two failures early on in my collecting return- ten years later I finally square away Stump Mitchell. Stump holds a special place in my heart due to his association with the San Antonio Riders and the WLAF.
Jim had a few cards that came out at the turn of the century that I came across. After researching possible places he lived, I took a shot at where he’s currently coaching. Jim Kubiak is not related to former coach Gary Kubiak.
CARDS: ProSet 1989, Topps Stadium Club 1992, Topps 1992 ACQUIRED: TTM 2022, C/o Home SENT: 2/7 RECEIVED: 3/7 (28 days)
Bruce Kozerski played C at Holy Cross.
Selected in the 9th round by the Cincinnati Bengals (1984 NFL Draft).
Played all over the line during his career, and as a bonus was the team’s long snapper on placekicks.
Stared at RG in ’86, eventually settling in a C by ’88 helping anchor one of the league’s leading offenses.
During the ’91 season, was pushed around the line due to injuries playing all 3 positions on the line.
Retired after the 1995 season, after 172 games, and 138 starts.
Coached at the HS level for sometime, leading his team to a 2A State Championship in 2011.
Bruce was extremely underrated and underappreciated during his tenure playing for the Cincinnati Bengals. He had some great cards over his career, including this Pro Set card, but for once, Topps NAILED it with their 1992 card. Just a great and inspiring shot of Bruce.
Celebrating the game, the players, the cards, and the autographs for over 25 years.
