A Nice Find

I opened up an old book and found several signed Redskin pictures. The first was a black and white around the late 70's Mark Mosley signed with a good luck to me and my name. The other is I think #53 (I left the pic at home) and I believe his name was Johnson something. Does anyone know where I could find the late 70's roster so I can figure out who he is. I would have been around 9 at the time and neither me nor my father know where they came from.

Try this: RedskinsDB.com: Washington Redskins Players (1932-2004)

I didn't see any Johnson with the number 53, though.

Yeah, I was reading through it and discovered that Richie Petitbon was a DB. Now THAT is hard to imagine.

Re: A Nice Find

I'm going to check the name and number again tonight. I had guest last night and did not take to long of look at the photo. My attention went to the Mosley pic. This was great timing because I just built a new garage that has a 20x24 room above which is going to be my game and skins room.

Re: A Nice Find

When I was like 5 I remember going with my brother to an autograph signing at Best (not Best Buy, just Best. Anyone else remember that store?) and getting Mark Moseley's autograph. I had no idea who he was really, I just wanted to hang out with my older brother and his friends.

I got Theismann's also. Again, I had no clue who he was

Re: A Nice Find

Yup. I have them in frames with their Topps cards in my room at my parents house.

I also have a Heath Shuler. Not framed though

Re: A Nice Find

Feel free to use Shuler as a dartboard. It can't hurt it's value!

Yep, BEST was a very good store. I used to shop there when I lived in the Fairfax area in the 70's and early 80's. I don't think they are around anymore though???

Sadly no. I loved their toy dept. But they had everything there. Sony Watchmans, Casio Calculator Watches, Zenith TVs. Even jewelry!

Re: A Nice Find

Ok I looked again and the other Skins Auto was Dennis Johnson #61 DE he played 4 years for the skins in the early 70's and that all I know about him. Anyone know anything about him , was he anygood? I alos found an auto from Cornell Gordon #28 CB for Denver Broncos and the JEts I also know nothing about him.

I did some looking and this was about all I found on him if anyone cares about a little of Skins history. Dennis Johnson - Delaware Sports Museum and Hall of Fame 2006 Inductee - Google Video

I can see it now when I finish my game room and have his pick up no one will know who it is.
