  • Darion Conner was a 3 time All-Southwestern Athletic Conference Selection out of Jackson State.
  • In 1989 posted 12.5 sacks and 130 tackles.
  • Second round pick of the Atlanta Falcons in 1990, Conner was prized for his versatility.
  • Settled at ROLB, and in first 3 seasons went over 100 tackles each year.
  • In 1994, played one season for the Saints, and had a career high 10.5 sacks, 3 forced fumbles, and an interception for 56 yards.
  • 1995 saw him take his skill set to Carolina, where he added another 7.0 sacks to his resume as an original member of the Panthers.
  • After two largely fruitless seasons in Philadelphia (’96-’97), Darion was signed by the ‘original but new’ Cleveland Browns.
  • Didn’t play a down for the team, so he decided to take his skills to the Arena Football League in 1999 playing OL/DL.
  • Connor was an impactful player in Arena Football.
  • He’d play with the Tampa Bay Storm through 2005.
  • Connor’s football career ended abruptly after he committed DUI-manslaughter and vehiculuar homicide.
  • He was sentenced to 15 years in prison- of which, he has paid his debt to society and is now a free man.


Darion signed all three of these cards for me masterfully with a silver sharpie. The Skybox card looks incredible.

  • After transferring from JC, Ian Beckles played offensive guard for one year at Indiana in 1989.
  • Ian grabbed the attention of scouts who watching film of fellow teammate Anthony Thompson.
  • He’d be selected by both the NFL (5th round, Bucs) and the CFL (1st round, BC Lions) in 1990.
  • Beckles became a mainstay at RG, playing in 101 games for the team.
  • In 1997, he hopped over to the Philadelphia Eagles playing for the team for two seasons.
  • He saw action in training camp with the Jets in ’99 and the Broncos in ’00 before hanging up his cleats for good.
  • Ian is active in the alternative medicine industry, and is a staunch advocate for marijuana legalization.
  • He also enjoys spending time in radio and podcasting.


Well I sent Ian two cards for him to sign. Unfortunately he only sent back the Gameday 1992 card, and kept the Score Supplemental. No big deal really- but the long tom format is not something that I’ve never supported on my website yearly updates.

Ah well- minor complaint, but I am sure glad to add him. He’s got a great autograph and a very nice card.

Greg had some fantastic Upper Deck College Football Legends cards I wanted to get signed. The Decade’s Best and Bowl Game Heroes are some great inserts. Too bad he signed on the back of the Bowl Game Hero card…
