NOTES:

Marty Lyons signed these two cards for me through the mail. I really like the Pro Set Legends 1991 card. He’s got a great autograph, and he even went to the trouble of putting the long ‘J’ on ‘J-E-T-S’. In a unique move he also dated the signatures.

NOTES:

I had written the Sidewinder way back in 2011, but at the time he was asking for a donation that I couldn’t afford, so 8 years later I gave him another shot with the money and he signed these two cards. I just figured he could’ve used a sharpie instead of a ball point pen.

Sammy as of 2021 has his own construction company in Mississippi that he started while he was still playing for the Broncos.

NOTES:

Jamie wrote me a nice note thanking me for writing him. He has an amazing autograph, with just the right amount of pressure and curves, and an elegant enough stroke, at just the right size. Jamie was lucky, to play when he did, as he had some great cards produced during his playing days.
