Pro Bowler and former Bengal and Ram Max Montoya returned my card signed. Montoya was a starting offensive lineman for 14 years in the NFL who became a restaurant owner and reporter after retirement. Montoya now raises horses on his farm in Kentucky.
Jim “Crash” Jensen was a running back, receiver, and special teams player for the Miami Dolphins. Jensen wore number 11 because he was originally drafted as a quarterback. The emergence of Dan Marino meant that Jensen would have to be utilized in other positions in order to see playing time. Jensen received his nickname “Crash” from Howard Cosell who was describing the way Jensen played while covering kickoffs.
After his NFL career ended, Jensen went on to coach the Orlando Predators of the Arena League. Jensen now works as a Director of Wellness Programs where he assists developmentally disabled children lead active lives.
Mr. Jensen was gracious enough to sign my 1990 Pro Set Card with inscribed with his nickname.
Today’s mailday was capped off by a return from Don Mosebar. Mosebar was an offensive lineman for the Raiders from 1983-1995. Mosebar was a 3x Pro Bowler whose career was cut short by an accidental eye poke during training camp. The injury was so severe that Mosebar had to have his left eye removed. Thank you Mr. Mosebar for the great addition to my collection.
Mr. Mosebar inscribed Romans 10:9 – If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
