He only has 15 of those (not counting 1/1's), with 10 of them being numbered to 25 or less. Over the past year and a half I have only been able to land three of them. The one you see most often is the 2001 Upper Deck Game Jersey Autographs (shown below). I wish you the best in your search.
If you don't mind sharing, what is the theme of the collection you would like to build?

Fullbacks never get enough credit, and there have been some fun ones in my life to watch, from Alsott running people over, to William Henderson hurtling people, and todays hammer blocker in Vonte Leach, and the all around guys like Tolbert, Kuhn, and Reece. I'd live to find a nice card of each with an auto, and a patch, though I know many of them don't have any. With the news on alstott, that's better than William Henderson...I think he has 2 total autos. Kuhn has none, though I bought an in person auto (I believe it to be legit), and not sure about the others. But it'll be a fun project I think.

I have considered doing a PC of the top 10 hardest hitters in the NFL. Of course opinions vary, but there are a few guys that end up on most lists--John Lynch, Dick Butkus, Ronnie Lott, etc. Unfortunately, I am spread so thin right now that if I add one more collection, I think my wife would beat me down.
