Returned to Sender, where a glorious $1 bin added some great autographs to my collection. These autographs make up the black and gold portion of those pickups. Though these autographs don't have quite the star power of the non-Steelers, I do love me some 90's Steeler autos.
This Carnell Lake auto is undoubtedly the star of the show for me. Lake was one of my favorite Steelers during the '90's, and I loved his hard hitting play. I actually already had his auto, but this marks a major upgrade. My dad and I met Carnell during an autograph day at Steelers training camp in 1996 or 1997. But at the time I still clung to the belief that signatures "ruined" cards, so instead I have his signature on a blank 3X5 white piece of paper in an autograph book. Perhaps some day those pieces will get matted as cut signatures with a nice 8x10. In the mean time, I'm thrilled to add this card.
