Rickey Foggie is my all-time favorite Gopher football player.  I don't even know if I realized there was a University of Minnesota, much less a football team there, until the arrivals of Lou Holtz and Foggie, when I was around seven years old.  In the mid-eighties, before super-athletic quarterbacks started getting chances in the NFL, I had never seen anyone play the position quite like Rickey.  After college, he enjoyed long careers in the Canadian and Arena Football Leagues, and spent a few years coaching in Arena ball.  He is now back in Minnesota, working at the PreSnap Football Academy in Lakeville.  These cards are exceptionally treasured new additions to the collection!
