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.
