A set I created in 2013 which emulates the Topps Inception Look. I will create a number of customs in this set, but the primary set will be a tribute set to the USFL.
Walter Lewis (Memphis Showboats)
One of the original dual threat Quarterbacks, Mr. Lewis often doesn't get the credit he deserves for his pioneering of the position. He returned 3/4 customs (K1AO) in 37 days. This return leaves one team remaining. I have the card made, just have to send when I get confirmation that the athlete is signing again.
Matt Ferguson (Jacksonville Bulls)
Really struggled to find a good quality pic of a Bulls alumni that signed consistently. After some digging, I finally found a good pic of former Bulls QB Matt Ferguson. He returned 3/4 customs (K1AO) in 18 days. This leaves me with two teams to go... I have one out, and one to send. Getting excited!
Kit Lathrop (Oklahoma/Arizona Outlaws)
Awesome return! Didn't have an address for him and I took a shot off some research. He sent a great note and personalized 3 cards to my kids and me. But, he signed them all on the back. I will send one more and request a signature on the front. Love the return... just want a signature on the front of the card to match the set. I sent a second request to Mr. Lathrop and he came through with a signature on the front! Awesome.
John Reaves (Tampa Bay Bandits)
Lightning fast return by the USFL all time record holder in passing attempts & completions. 5 days door to door. Returned 3/4 customs (K1AO).
Steve Young (Los Angeles Express)
Finally... the other big one from this set came home. Mr. Young returned 2/2 via his foundation in just over six months.
Herschel Walker (New Jersey Generals)
One of my big ones I've been waiting for. Mr. Walker finally sent back 2/4 custsoms (offered 1) in 157 days c/o his home.
Danny Buggs (San Antonio Gunslingers)
Took awhile, but Mr. Buggs returned 3/4 customs in 136 days via his home. K1AO, postmarked from Atlanta.
Marcus Marek (Boston Breakers)
This one was out for awhile, but came home with a nice note. Returned 1/2 (K1AO) in 102 days.
Anthony Carter (Oakland Invaders)
45 days door to door, but Mr. Carter came through. Returned 1/2 customs (K1AO). Always liked the way he played in the USFL & NFL.
Greg Landry (Arizona Wranglers)
Although I really wanted him for my Blitz card, I had to settle for him in a Wranglers uniform. Returned 1/2 customs (K1AO) in 67 days via his home.
Mike Hohensee (Washington Federals)
It was IMPOSSIBLE to find any good color shots of the Washington Federals... especially anybody worth trying to pick up. I ended up using an image off an 1984 USFL Card to put this together. Not my favorite picture, but one of the signatures I most wanted back. Coach Hohensee has had a great career in the Arena League since his playing days and I'm glad this one came home. 8 days door to door, returned 2/2.
Stan White (Chicago Blitz)
Sent 3 customs to Mr. White, he returned 2 (K1AO) and included a note thanking me for the cards. 8 day turnaround.
Reggie Collier (Orlando Renegades)
Took a shot on this one. Mr. Collier is not a big signer, but he came through for me. Sent to his work and he returned 1/2 customs (K1AO) in 11 days. Awesome return!
Vince Evans (Denver Gold)
Mr. Evans returned 1/2 customs (K1AO) in 11 days via his home. Beautiful sig!
Mike Rozier (Pittsburgh Maulers)
The former Heisman Trophy Winner signed 1/2 customs (K1AO) and also sent back a signed index card. Always a reliable signer. 13 days door to door.
Bobby Hebert (Michigan Panthers)
Three out of the first five are home. Mr Hebert returned 1/2 customs (K1AO) in 11 days via his home.
Joey Jones (Birmingham Stallions)
10 days door to door. The former Stallion returned both customs.
Chuck Fusina (Philadelphia Stars)
My first return from the USFL set that I have created, and it's a great one. Mr. Fusina returned 1/2 customs (K1AO) in 6 days via his home.
