Bishop, Keith

CARDS: Pro Set 1989, Score 1989
ACQUIRED: TTM 2022, C/o Home
SENT: 5/31 RECEIVED: 6/10 (10 days)


  • Keith Bishop was an offensive lineman, drafted out of Baylor by the Denver Broncos in the 6th round of the 1980 NFL Draft.
  • Would have been drafted higher, but injuries riddled his final year of college and early on in his pro career.
  • Prized for long snapping skills.
  • Versatile, aggressive, with a touch of finesse, played Center and Guard over career.
  • First offensive lineman in Broncos history to be named to the Pro Bowl.
  • Played for Broncos from 1980-89.


  • Pro Bowl 1986, ’87


Keith works for the Broncos as the Vice President of Security. I had a set need with Keith on the Pro Set 1989, and realized after sifting through cards late one night, he had a great Score 1989 card. I’m a sucker for cards with big men that have dirt on them. This one definitely checked all the boxes so I had get Keith.

Fahnhorst, Jim

CARDS: Topps 1990, Proset 1989
ACQUIRED: TTM 2022, C/o Home
SENT: 10/31 RECEIVED: 11/14 (14 days)


  • Jim Fahnhorst played LB for his home state Minnesota Golden Gophers.
  • 4th round pick of the Minnesota Vikings in 1982.
  • Eventually ended up playing in the USFL for the Chicago Blitz in 1983, and the Arizona Wranglers in 1984, making a pair of interceptions and recovering 4 fumbles over his career.
  • Signed with the ‘9ers in 1984, and was witness to 3 49ers Super Bowl titles over his career.
  • Hardworking, versatile, determined player, was a chief backup in the ‘9ers LB corps.
  • Best season came in 1986 starting 14 games, recording 4 interceptions and a sack playing RILB.
  • Retired after the 1990 campaign.


Jim didn’t receive the trading card accolades due to him until really late in his career, however the Pro Set 1989 was probably enough to blow his socks off. Since he had a Topps ’90 as well, I thought I’d drop that one in too. He appears in the original NES game Tecmo Bowl as a LB for San Fransisco.

He’s got an amazing autograph. Love the blue and the pen pressure on this is solid across the board- powerful. The ligature of ‘Jim’ shortened into a J and the interesting pointedness of his F leading into a series of loops, really is intriguing.
