Had to respond to this thread. Steve Smith is in the late stages of ALS. May he be comfortable in his trying times.

That sucks, could you run to the Post Office and get it back?
Smith married former Raiderette, Chie Aguilar-Hiroto from Cypress, CA in December 1989. The couple have two children, Dante (July 1990) and Jazmin (Sept 1991) and live in Richardson, Texas. Smith has been afflicted with Lou Gehrig's disease since July 2002. He cannot speak because of a ventilator and receives his food through a feeding tube. He communicates via a state of the art computer system donated by MDS, reported his wife. Former teammates, including former Nittany Lions D. J. Dozier and Shane Conlan, have rallied to raise money for Smith's medical bills.

FYI: Steve Smith of the Raiders is in bad shape from what I read a while back on SCN....there was a news story on him somewhere from what I recall and in it, it was reported that his family was signing his mail for him so that he would not disappoint fans. I could not locate the story to cite it for which I apologize but I am pretty sure it was him.

You won't be able to complete the set signed. Too many players who don't sign or have passed. It is still a great set to have and a fun one to work with TTM. You should be able to get quite a few autographs. Here are some names off the top of my head that sign from that set:
Crawford KErr, Lawrence Taylor (c/o HOF), Danny Noonan, Eugene Lockhart, John Settle, John Williams, Boomer Esiason (for a fee for his charity), Warren Moon, Ernest Givens, Haywood Jeffries, Raul Allegre, JoJo Townsell.
Guys not to bother with: Michael Irvin, Troy Aikman, Jim Kelly, Barry Sanders.
Drew Hill and Ron Hall have passed. There are more but I am doing this off the top of my head. Do a little research before you send to guys. A google search will tell you all you need to know.I collect NY Yankees, NY Giants, NY Rangers, NY Knicks, and NJ Nets. I am willing to trade. PM me if you have any cards signed by players from these teams.
Working on collecting all living New York Giants (football) and New York Yankees. The question is which team drives me nuts first!!!
