NOTES:

Shane was a pretty rare signer up until 2021. He has a bevvy of great cards to choose from that I wanted, but these were my top choices. Of note, he’s also one of my few TTM successes from the great state of Montana.

CAREER SNAPSHOT:

See Also: Jim Hart

NOTES:

I had gotten Jim’s autograph previously and thought I’d closed the book on him, but realized after the fact that Action Packed had produced the Whizzer White Award set which had him in it. Like most from this set, it was a spectacular action shot of Jim that his autograph looks great on.

I had been picking up a few of these guys autographs for CFLFaninPhilly, but Derrick elected to keep one of his cards, so CFL told me to keep this one. I am honestly tempted to start collecting this subset.
