1995 Collector's Choice Update - Stick-Ums #88 Oakland Raiders / Terry McDaniel / Jimmy Oliver / Christian Fauria Back  1995 Collector's Choice Update - Stick-Ums #88 Oakland Raiders / Terry McDaniel / Jimmy Oliver / Christian Fauria Front

 

Yeah, this one is goofy. It's sticker #88 featuring Jimmy Oliver (bottom left) and some other guys. I'm trying to do a different player every day and 88 didn't give me much to work with.

No pro Frog 88s.

 

So using Google to come up with some original ideas for 88-related pictures, I discover that apparently 88 is some sort of anti-Semitic/neo-Nazi symbol?  It is short hand for 'Heil Hitler.'  Had no idea.  So if you see someone with an '88' tattoo, probably best to avoid them.

I think cause H is the 8th letter of the alphabet?

Leon Clay’s towel from that game is in a box somewhere over at my parent’s house.

I believe this photo is from a different play in the same game, but Aaron Green scored on an 86-yard TD run on the first play from scrimmage against Kansas State in 2015. Oh, what a night that was.

 

...and a bonus 86:

Probably going to be the first of several appearances by LT for my countdown card of the day. Apparently, only three guys have cards that are numbered 86 in my collection: Larry Brown, Andy Dalton, and LT. LT and Dalton will probably make a bunch of appearances.
