I don't know that I will ever send out another tennis autograph request, but sending to David Wheaton was a no-brainer.  The greatest tennis player Minnesota has produced is probably best known for his Cinderella run at Wimbledon in 1991, where he upset Ivan Lendl and Andre Agassi en route to the semifinals (where he lost to eventual champion Boris Becker).  The great American underdog story was enough to get him a card in this silly "Celebrity Captains" subset in the 1991-92 Pro Set Platinum hockey set.  Thanks, Mr. Wheaton!
