    Nope. Just a glass-half-empty fan who lives in Washington. Not sure where I got this one; most are grabbed off the Net. Obscure auction houses are a rich source.

    It's amazing (depressing?) that no one's done better with #87 than Jay Saldi.

    Auction houses like Lelands, Hunt Auctions, Heritage Galleries, American Memorabilia Auctions, Grey Flannel Collectibles, etc.

    So...do you pay for these pictures? That's what an "auction house" means to me?

    Anyway, you don't have to answer if you do or don't, but, man, you post the best ones that I have ever seen!

    Just to throw others out there for discussion....

    Any thought on Thomas Everett over Ron Fellows for #27? I can't remmeber just how many accolades Fellows got.

    I know Septien was pretty good, but did he make Pro Bowls, etc.? I wonder if McBriar could pass him.

    Maybe it's for another thread, but how many guys on the team today could take over their number as all-time best? Spencer has to be a lock.

    And don't sleep on Alan Ball. ;)

    No, I just copy and save the press photos being auctioned. A lot of my pics are just scans I made from old magazines.

    Out of curiosity, do we know what # Spencer wants to wear? I was kinda hoping he'd go with #56. I like the idea of having a #94 and a #56 as OLB edge rushers coming at QBs. It's like paradigmatic.

    As far as players playing now who will lay claim, I think the following will have their numbers by the end of their careers:

    McBriar (1)
    Romo (9)
    Watkins (25)(hopefully)
    Roy (31)
    Grudoe (65)
    Owens (81)
    Witten (82)
    Glenn (83)
    Ware (94)
    Spears (96)
    Ellis (98)
    Canty (99)

    Newman will have a tough fight for his.
    If Henry put up a couple good years, he could claim #42.
    3-4 more productive seasons, and I'd give Fergy #95 over Hennings.

    I was like to point out my mixed emotions about seeing Breunig on the list. Yeah, he was good, but my father hated him.

    I can still here the familiar refrain "dammit Breunig!"

    What happened? I thought Breunig was a great player on that Doomsday defense?

    Fill us in on what he did to make your dad mad...if you want too.

    I'd put Walt Garrison over Dennis Thurman for 32. But I'm old school. ;)

    Spencer is already #93.

    I think he'll pass Kenyon Coleman sometime about the middle of training camp. ;)

    Per some recommendations I changed #1, #27, and #32.

    I'm still considering Adderley at 26 vs. Preston Pearson. If anyone has opinions on it please share. For either player.

    I think I have to give #14 to Craig Morton over Eddie LeBarron...Morton did get us to a Superbowl.

    At first glance I found it hard to choose between Adderly and Pearson but I have to go with Pearson. Pearson was money on 3rd down. Everyone in the house (hell everyone in the whole country) knew that Staubach was going to Pearson on 3rd down and they still could not stop it. I don't think I can recall anyone who was as clutch as Preston Pearson.

    This one is very, very close. I loved Walt; he was one of my favorites. But Thurman and his thieves were hot in that secondary. Of course Michael Downs, Everson Walls and Ron Fellows had something to do with that too. I could go either way.
