Steve Nelson is one of the greatest NFL players ever produced by the state of Minnesota.  Born in Farmington, he went to high school at Anoka and played collegiately for North Dakota State.  His entire 14-year pro career was spent with the Patriots.  One of the best inside linebackers of the '70s and '80s, he was a three-time Pro Bowl honoree and his number 57 is retired by New England.  I sent him three cards.  He signed all of them and added a 1981 Topps card.  Awesome return from a home-state legend!
