Welcome to Mark`s Signing Bonus. Circa 1992.
The best way to make the hobby fun is to make your collection unique.
- My site is dedicated to a variety of sports with an emphasis towards baseball, football, hockey, golf, basketball, boxing, olympics, coaching & racing successes. I want to point out that your results can vary and of course I can't promise that any player I list will sign. My intent is to update anytime a new success is received. My goal is to provide information to collectors about those players that are willing to sign through the mail. This site is informational in nature and I will NEVER-EVER sell or trade these items. So don't ask.

My Past Successes
Val Jansante played wide receiver for the Pittsburgh Steelers & Green Bay Packers from 1946-51. Mr. Jansante was a tenth round draft pick in 1944 but because of his service in World War II, did not join the Steelers until 1946.
Val Jansante was the first ever Pittsburgh Steeler to catch double-digit passes in a single game. How many receptions did he complete his career with?
