  • Alvin was a top flight safety that the Redskins sniped in the 3rd round of the 86 draft.
  • There wasn’t a ton of tape on Alvin since he had academic issues while playing CB at Kansas.
  • Started 4 games his rookie campaign at S and paid immediate dividends, raking in 75 tackles.
  • Had 2 interceptions in 87, and led team in tackles with 148.
  • An enforcer on the line of scrimmage, racked up 11 tackles for loss that season.
  • In ’88, had monstrous campaign putting together 196 total tackles, 3 picks, and a sack.
  • Again, had a team high in tackles in ’89 with 137, and led team with 4 interceptions, including 1 for a TD- despite missing 3 games due to injury.
  • In ’90, returned a Cardinals interception 57 yards for a TD, and led the team for a 4th consecutive year with 143 tackles.
  • 1991 was largely a wash after suffering a shoulder injury during the contest against the Cowboys in week 2.
  • Lost out in a numbers game during camp in 1992 and was cut.
  • Out of football 3 years, reemerged with the Baltimore Stallions of the CFL in 1994 playing LB.
  • Helped the team win the Grey Cup, in 1995 recording 38 tackles- retiring after the season.


Alvin had some great cards during his time in the NFL. I mean on top of this he still had a great Pro Set ’89 and some other set needs. I had been looking for him for a bit, and was happy to get these back in no time flat.

I tried to get his autograph a few years ago but didn’t have any luck so when a cheap signing came along I went ahead and dropped these two cards in the mail. Drummond appears in Tecmo Superbowl as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles.





Clark, Robert

The holder of 34 individual player records at WR for North Carolina Central at the time of his departure in 1986, Robert Clark was a 10th round pick of the New Orleans Saints in 1987. He’d make the squad, and play for the team in both 87 and 88, finishing with 22 receptions for 283 yards and 2 TDs, but couldn’t crack the starting lineup, thanks in part to an injury he sustained his rookie season.

In 1989 the Lions were fully committed to their Silver Stretch offense, so they needed 4 wide receivers to make that happen. They’d run out and sign Robert as an unconditional free agent, and he’d step right into the starting lineup posting a gaudy 18.2 receiving average, as he finished second on the team with 748 yards on 41 receptions.

Robert finished second on the team with 52 receptions and led the squad with 8 TD receptions in 1990. In 1991, Robert continued his consistent production, setting a career single game high catching 10 passes for 143 yards against the Packers, where 9 of 10 of those receptions went for first downs. He’d conclude the 1991 season with 47 catches for 640 yards and 6 TDs.

A precise route runner who is quick in traffic, Clark was fearless over the middle, but could also turn on the jets when it counted- particularly against division opponents. Over his time in Detroit, Robert started 45 of 46 contests. He’d then spend one largely forgettable season with the Dolphins in 1992, catching just 3 passes for 52 yards.

As the CFL invaded the USA in 1993, Robert joined the league playing for the Toronto Argonauts. He immediately established himself as one of the top dogs in the CFL, leading wide receivers at the midway point in receptions and yardage. On the season, Clark finished with 50 receptions for 900 yards and 3 TDs. He’d then spend his next two final seasons with the Baltimore Stallions helping the team win the CFL championship.

I have always been a friend to the Run N Shoot system, partially due to my Houston roots, so I was very happy to get his autograph on these cards, especially considering he’s such a rare signer.
