Being a Syracuse fan I immediately noticed Art BakerDon McPherson, and Robert Drummond were missing from your list.

I always enjoy a little CFL appreciation !  


On a somewhat related note... 
If you're ever inspired to do a similar list regarding WLAF/ NFL EUROPE players, 
you might be surprised by some of the names there.  

That league gets ZERO credit ... but NFL history would probably look VERY
different if these guys didn't get a chance to keep their careers alive there: 

QB Kurt Warner 
QB Brad Johnson 
LB James Harrison 
LB Mike Jones 
PK Adam Vinatieri

Thanks, C2Cigars.  If I could only remember how to comment each card on the list, I'll give you credit on those ones, plus add some of their CFL career details :)

I'd be curious to see that list myself, altaeria.  I know little of those leagues, and was surprised to find I have a card of a Montreal Machines player in my collection.  However, I have a feeling this CFL one will keep me busy enough.
